    wash up 1

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    It's time to wash up for dinner.

    wash up = wash one's hands and face, as in.

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    Yes, though we don't necessarily wash our faces before dinner.
