Mango string getting stuck between one’s teeth

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a mango string is stuck in my teeth, I did my best to clean my teeth before making ghusl mindful that all mango strings are taken out, after ghusl I read salaah and quraan. The next morning I ate thereafter I cleaned my teeth again and I found a small single mango string from my teeth. Is the ghusl, salaah and reading of quraan valid? The mango string is as thin as hair.


A: The ghusal is valid.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
