Touching an impure item

Q: I put a tissue around my private part. When I removed the tissue, it was damp. I had touched the damp tissue and with the same hands I touched the electrical switch and left it there for a few days. The switch is wet most of the time. I touched it when it was wet with wet hands but the switch had no trace of impurity on it and my hand did not have any trace of impurity on it. If I touched my clothes with the same hand, will the clothes become impure?

A: No.

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