Wash

The wash sign is generally made by making the dominant hand into a fist, keeping the non-dominant hand flat, with palm facing up, while the dominant hand makes counter-clockwise circles on the palm.

If you want to sign wash hands, then you form both hands into fists and rub them against each other in alternative circular movements.

SIGN USAGE

You can use thewash sign before you wash your babies' hands. Babies can be a little fussy when it comes to washing up before meals, so doing the sign beforehand can help make them prepared.

    May I ask for the sign for “washing machine”?

    ADMIN – Hi Agnes,

    ASL for “washing machine” looks like the agitator on a washing machine. You take your two hands, fingers pointing toward each other, and twist them back and forth. (It also kind of looks like twisting the cap off a big bottle or jar, with your hands facing each other at an angle, your dominant hand at the top, and your non-dominant hand holding the base of the imaginary jar.)
