Urination on Pants, Maaser and Taxes


1   is if somebody gets a little bit of urine on pants is it enough to just dry clean them in order to daven wearing them?

2    And second does one give maaser after or before taxes?


1    Yes, dry cleaning is sufficient. Urine absorbed in a garment only poses a problem when the garment is wet to the extent it will wet the hand enough to wet what the hand subsequently touches [“tofeach al mnas lhatfiach”].

2    One may deduct  taxes from his maaser accounting.
