Washing alcohol off the dining table

Q: Some people were having alcohol and they dropped it on my wooden dining table. How can I make it pure? Will cleaning with soap and wiping with wet cloth make it pure as washing it will not be possible.

A: You do not need to wash the whole dining table. However, you should wash the area upon which the alcohol had fallen and thereafter wipe it.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
