Q: What is the ruling on touching ethyl alcohol which is used in labs for making slides? I have a pathology class in which we have to use alcohol. Should I wash my hands after touching alcohol bottles even if they are dry?
A: As a precaution, it is better that you wash your hands after using it.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
