Mud On Clothing & Shabbat

The Daily Halacha Moment - Mud On Clothing & Shabbat👚


״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)


“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Question:

What should one do if ones clothing got dirty in the mud on Shabbat?


Answer:

According to the Sephardic custom If one’s clothing got dirty by mud, then it depends:


a. If the mud is still wet, then one may grab the area of clothing from the *inside* of the clothing and rub it against itself, or one may use his nail to scratch it even from the outside. [1]


b. If the mud has dried up, one may rub it off by grabbing the inside of the clothing and rubbing it against itself *only* if one is embarrassed to go outside with such a stain and one does not have any other clothing to change into. Preferably, even if one does not have any other clothing, one should ask a non-Jew to take off the mud.[2]

Ashkenazim might be stringent one should ask one's Rabbi.
