Halacha - Order of Netilas Yadaim Upon Waking
Submitted by Rachel  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: What is the correct order of saying Modeh Ani, washing negel vasser in the morning, if one needs to use the restroom? I've learned that upon rising, one should 1. say the first sentence of Modeh Ani (without Hashem's name). 2. Wash hands 6x without a bracha (to remove tumah) 3. use restroom 4. wash hands w/ bracha 5. say Reishis Chachma is this correct? Can you please review the seder of morning halachos pertaining to this? Thank you!

Upon rising one should say Modeh Ani, wash 6 or 8 times w/o a beracha and use the restroom, as you mentioned. After the restroom one washes again 6 times with a beracha if you intend to daven Shacharis immediately, but otherwise it is sufficient to rinse the hands now and wash them again with a beracha later when you are ready to daven. Reishis Chochma is not usually recited by adults, but follow your own minhag.
