Clearly the solution is dehydrated water! Google it. See for yourself!
A group of non-chassidish men were talking about skiing. A chassidish rebbeh asked what the conversation was about. When we explained, he told us the yiddish word for the sport. We invited him to join us – he thought about it for a couple of seconds and answered that he would not intentionally put himself into a “sakanah” but he thanked us “sai v’sai”.July 2, 2012 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #882241Sam2Participant
HaLeiVi: To use a whole Revi’is is just an Eitzah Tovah because it avoids a lot of problems. As long as you begin with a Revi’is, you can use as little water as possible so long as you get water on every part of both hands.
The wipes wouldn’t work because you need the water to come from a Revi’is gathered in one place. The water doesn’t have to be drinkable but there are limits (this has its own Siman in the Shulchan Aruch, somewhere around 158 I think).July 2, 2012 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #882242popa_bar_abbaParticipant

We wash a second time because the water might have gone to a part of your hand that you didn’t wash.July 2, 2012 10:09 pm at 10:09 pm #882244
Haleivi, that is incorrect.
Mayim Shniyim is because mayim reshomin gets tamei.
This does not occur when using more than a revi’s as sam2 pointed out.
Sam2 the water not only has to be in one place, it most be in a Keili. it has to have a din Keili.July 3, 2012 2:29 am at 2:29 am #882245Sam2Participant
HaLeiVi and 2scents: You are both incorrect. We wash twice because once is for washing and once is for Nekiyus (Machlokes between the Aruch Hashulchan and Mishnah B’rurah which is which).
2scents: That is true. It has to be in a certain type of Kli but it also has to be in one place. Hence, dropping the wipes from a cup onto your hands won’t work.July 3, 2012 2:44 am at 2:44 am #882246
A. I think you are referring to what the poskim mention, which is washing for nekiyos, the used to wash three times.
Mayim reshonim gets tamei. Unless its a revi’is. Therefore we wash twice.
I me toned he kelei thing to Pasul using wipes. Btw, according to some poskim, the water does not have to be in one place, if it’s all connected sort of zeria (doesn’t have to be with all dinim like by a Mikva) is good enough. So if all the water touches, it’s good enough.July 3, 2012 1:31 pm at 1:31 pm #882247
PBA, I think you are right, I could not find a source that only Bshas Hadchak is one allowed to travel without water for washing.July 3, 2012 1:34 pm at 1:34 pm #882248
Also, the water most be drinkable, therefore wipes might not work.July 4, 2012 1:04 pm at 1:04 pm #882249BaalHaboozeParticipant
Is this concept of wiping one’s hands on a tree a real thing or a ‘bubba maysah’? I NEVER heard of that before! Can someone please show me where it says one may wipe his hands on a tree or table instead of washing with water?April 5, 2017 11:39 pm at 11:39 pm #1251683zaltzvasserParticipant
