Cautionary Jabīrah Wuḍū’ or Ghusl

Question: I work with paint and glue and it is not possible to work with gloves. I always remove the obstacle before wuḍū’ and ghusl as much as I can. But sometimes after prayer, wuḍū’ or ghusl, I see an obstacle that I did not see before. If there was an obstacle and I couldn't get sight of it, is wuḍū’ or ghusl considered a jabīrah one?
Answer: If it is one of the cases in which the wuḍū’ of jabīrah is allowed, you can pass your wet hand on the wuḍū’ member — on which you think there can be an obstacle — with the intention of wuḍū’, in addition to washing it.
