Clean hands for a blessing


One must have clean hands when reciting any blessing; therefore, one who has been eating should wash his hands before reciting a blessing.

This is distinct from the practice of mayim acharonim recorded in the Talmud; it is a matter of respect for the blessing.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:140:2)
