Will the bucket become impure after washing impure clothes in it?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. If we wash napaak cloths in a bucket, will the bucket get napaak? Do all the cloths which we wash afterwards will be napaak?

2. How to make a the bucket paak. I usually pour water inside and outside of bucket using hand shower three times. Is emptying it out after every refill is necessary? 



1. If the wet napaak clothes were put into the bucket or water was poured into a bucket of napaak clothing then the bucket will be napaak.

2. Rinse it once or twice and throw the water out.

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