Recite surah ikhlaas in every rakah
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: …..is there any proper sora for wazoo, i mean in ever part that we wash our body for praying is there an sora to reciet ?
To the best of our knowledge, there is absolutely no evidence in the authentic and established Sunnah that other than the declaration of ‘Bismillah’ the Messenger of Allah (saws) would recite any specific dua or supplication at the beginning or during the performance of the ‘wudu’. There is indeed evidence that he (saws) would make one of various supplications to Allah Subhanah after he had finished his ‘wudu’.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) supplicated Allah thus after he had completed his ‘wudu’, : “‘Allah hummaj alnee minat-tawwabeen, waj alnee minal mutah-tahereen’ (O Allah, make me one of those who constantly repents to You, and of those who purify themselves.)”

Abu Saeed Al Khudri narrated that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “Whoever makes ‘wudu’ then says upon finishing his ‘wudu’: ‘Subhanaka Allah humma wa bihamdika, ashhadu anlaa ilaaha illa anta, astaghfiruka wa atoobu ilaik’ (Glory be to You O Allah, and all praise belongs to You; I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except You. I seek Your Forgiveness, and I turn to You), it is written in a parchment, then sealed; and is not opened till the Day of Resurrection.”
Narrated Hadrat Umar ibn Al-Khattab (r.a.) that he heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) say: ‘None of you makes ‘wudu’ and completes the ‘wudu’, then says: “I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah Alone, He has no partners; and I bear witness that Mohamed is His slave-servant and His Messenger”, except that all eight Gates of Paradise are opened for him, so he may enter by whichever he pleases.’

In light of the above quoted guidance, there is no ‘dua’ or ‘surah’ which needs to be recited when washing or wiping the required parts of the body when performing one’s ‘wudu’……it is a Sunnah to make one of the above quoted supplications after one has completed their ‘wudu’.

An incident did occur in the time of the Prophet (saws) where one amongst the Ansaars would recite Surah Al-Ikhlaas in every rakah of his prayer.
Ubaidullah ibn Thabit related that Anas said,
"One of the helpers (Ansar) led the people in prayer at (the mosque) of
Quba'. Before he began his recitation he would always recite Surah 112
Al-Ikhlaas until he finished that Surah, and then he would recite another
surah. He did that in every rakah. They said to him, 'You begin with that Surah
(Al-Ikhlaas), but we don't find it sufficient until you add another Surah to
it?' He said, 'I will not stop doing so. I like to lead you in the prayer with
that. If you don't like it, I will leave (leading you in the prayers).' They
thought that he was the best among them, so they didn't want someone else to
lead them. They referred the matter to the Prophet (saws) and he said, 'O so
and so, what has kept you from doing what your companions have asked you? Why
do you keep reciting that Surah (Al-Ikhlaas) in every rak'ah?' He said, 'I love
that Surah.' The Prophet (saws) said, 'Your love for that Surah (Al-Ikhlaas)
will cause you to enter
Although it is considered obligatory to recite the Surah Al-Fatihah in every rakah of every prayer, the recitation of another Surah or some verses of the Glorious Quran after Surah Al-Fatihah is not an obligatory part of prayer, but rather a Sunnah and thus voluntary.
As much as the merits of the blessed Surah 112 Al-Ikhlaas were announced by the Messenger of Allah (saws) in Truth, it was not the practice of the Messenger of Allah (saws), nor his noble companions, nor the believers of the earliest generations to recite only the Surah Al-Ikhlaas (or any other particular Surah) after the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah in every rakah of their prayers.
The practice and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) was to recite different Surahs in each rakah of his prayers after the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah, and the absolutely clear guidance of the Messenger of Allah (saws) to the believers regarding the prayer is:
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.604 Narrated by Malik
The Prophet (saws) said: "Pray as you have seen me pray.”
Because the Messenger of Allah (saws) did not stop the Ansaar companion from reciting the Surah Al-Ikhlas in every rakah of his prayer, one can rightly claim that it is acceptable and permissible and not forbidden….but the established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) was to recite different Surahs or verses of the Glorious Quran after the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah in his prayers.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
