السلام عليكم و رحمة الله وبركاته

Honorable Mufti, I pray You are well.

I realized that I had floor detergent containing 5% alcohol. Is it allowed to clean the floors of my house with that detergent?

I think the alcohol used in cleaning products is synthetic and therefore not inebriating since you could not drink it, but I'm not sure.

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

 

Answer:

If it’s not the drinkable alcohol, you may use the detergent to clean the floors.

 

 

Only Allah knows best
