Q: What is the best way to remove impurity from countertops? I had some wet impurity on a part of the countertop a while ago and it dried and nothing was visible, but the impurity itself was not visible. I spilled some water over a majority of the countertop (I could not cover the entire thing in water, as the water would have spilled over the sides), and then wiped it dry with tissue. The countertop is made of wood with a resin top however some of layers have come of so some wood is visible (the impurity was not on the wood parts, but the water I spilled on the impurity did get to the wood). Is this counter top pure? If not how do I clean it (note that impurity mixed with water has touched most of the countertop and since we make wudu/wash our hands here, no doubt it has transferred to a whole bunch of places). How do I take care of this?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
