Purifying A Leather Wallet

Question

How do I purify a leather wallet?

Answer

If the leather wallet is such that the water does not soak through it or it is not permeable to water, then it can be purified by merely washing it. Alternatively, if it is permeable and the najaasah soaks through it, then it can be purified by washing it three times and squeezing out all the water each time. When squeezing out the water the third time, it should be squeezed hard so that it stops dripping water. However, if it cannot be squeezed then it can be purified by washing it three times and drying it between each wash.
