Money Matters - Exchanged Talis
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer: When someone performs a service for someone else, even if unsolicited, the recipient must pay for any benefit derived from this.
There are, however, several qualifications to this, and a comprehensive discussion of this issue is beyond the scope of this forum.
However, in this case the ruling would appear to be as follows:
Since the cleaning is irreversible, if the Tallis needed cleaning the owner would need to reimburse you the cost of the cleaning. If it needed no cleaning whatsoever (for example it had just been cleaned by the owner) he need not pay you anything. If it was somewhere in between, he should pay you the amount one who had a Tallis in such a condition would be willing to pay to get it cleaned.
