Are there any sources in Rabbinic literature that mention washing hands with soap after using the bathroom? I.e that just using the cup (נטילת ידים) isn't sufficient.

An explicit statement would be best, but even something else that talks about washing for cleanliness would be good.

  • Correct. And that is why it was placed as a comment. Sep 21, 2015 at 17:18
  • Why would you think soap would be required?
