The Ruling on Shaking Hands with Other than the Mahram

Some men are in the habit or shaking hands with relatives whom they are not a Mahram to. But they do it by way of kinship or neighbours. What is the ruling on this? And is it enough for him if she places a piece of cloth over her hand, with the intention of screening her hand?

It is not permissible for a man to shake hand with a woman who is unrelated to him, even if she placed a piece of cloth over her hand when shaking hands. And may peace and blessing be upon our Prophet, Muhammad and upon his family and companions.
