Unintentionally washing one's hands with soap in the state of ihraam

Q: I went on Umrah and while in the state of ihram I unintentionally washed my hands with soap and at that time I completely forgot that I am in a state of ihram. What should I do now?

A: Give out some sadaqah.

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