Making the Janābah Ghusl with a Wet Instrument (e.g. cloth)

Q: Assuming one wets a cloth and uses it, for a janābah ghusl, to wash one’s body (in the order required), would this suffice or not? Moreover, during the ghusl, assuming one of the preceding washed limbs dries off before completing the washing of a succeeding limb (or before the completion of the whole ghusl process), would this be problematic or not?

A: As long as the process is termed and regarded as a ‘washing’ (by laity), then that suffices. The drying off of a preceding washed limb is unproblematic.
