Mafia idiom of the day. WASH YOUR HANDS OF SOMETHING


Meaning: when you wash your hands of something you start keeping away from an activity you used to be a part of, because you lost your interest in it.

For example:

  • Kate washed her hands of the entire charity fund after understanding that she was supposed to steal donated money.
  • Salieri washed his hands of Sorriso after finding out he was a checked “black player”.
  • Big Vik is not going to wash his hands of politics, because that’s the way he does the crime without getting convicted.

You can practice this idiom soon at one of the English Mafia Club’s upcoming meetings:
