ANSWER:

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

Mistakes are forgiven and sins are wiped away from the water of Wudū’, just as it has been mentioned in several Hadīths, and the majority of sins are committed with the hands, feet, eyes, ears and head. We have been commanded to pour the water of Wudū’ on these so that these body parts become pure from sins.
