WASHING AFTER THE MEAL
After a meal, a person should wash his hands up to the second joint of his fingers. This is done right before saying the Birchas Hamazon. This water should be poured from one container with another container underneath, to catch the water which was poured on his hands. This water should be emptied in a proper place. This is because the water has become "tomay", and a person should be careful that it does not touch anything. All types of water may be used. Wine should not be used because of its importance.
