Which waters are fit for Netilat Yadayim?

  1. Waters that changed it’s color are unfit for Netilat Yadayim. The same law applies whether the color because something fell in, or because of the container. [1]
  2. If dye changed the color of water even if it didn’t dissolve the water is unfit. [2]
  3. If dirt fell into water it’s not considered water that changed colors. [3]
  4. If water that changed it’s color changed back to it’s normal state it’s considered fit. [4]
  5. If one does Tevilat Yadayim in a mikvah, the waters are fit even if the waters changed colors unless dye, red wine, or fruit juice fell in and dissolved. [5]

  1. S”A 160:1 writes that the law of waters that changed it’s color is the same whether the color changed on it’s own, because of something falling in, or because of the container. Mishna Brurah 160:2 writes that the Achronim point out that the S”A merely copied the language of the Tur, however, we hold like the Rambam and so it’s permitted.
