The washing of the Holy Kaaba is as per the example set by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

It is customary for the Saudi monarch or his representative to wash the Holy Kaaba from inside.

Towels are used to wipe the walls of the Kaaba. The interior walls are cleansed with a white cloth dipped in rose and musk perfumes.

Zamzam water mixed with rose perfume is splashed on the floor and is wiped with bare hands and palm leaves.
