Halacha - amein
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

If one has already said the beracha of al netilas yadayim on his own washing he may answer amein to someone else's al netilas yadayim. It is not considered an interruption between washing and hamotzi, because it is relevant to the washing. However if you washed but did not say the beracha yet many hold that you may not answer and that no delay at all is permitted between fulfilling a mitzva and saying the beracha on the mitzva.
