Bracha recited before washing


If one recited Al Netilas Yadayim before washing, and then one washed his hands, was the Bracha valid or is a new Bracha required?



Thank you for your question.

Although the minhag is to make the bracha after washing, if one made the bracha before washing (without talking out between the bracha and washing) one is yotza, and there is no need to say the bracha again.


Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 158-10.
