Hello!
"She took the dog with her" because she doesn't take herself on a lead.
We say :
I wash myself
I look at myself in the mirror (my face is the object of my looking at the mirror)
We look at each other (She looks at me (not myself) and I look at her (not herself))
I did it myself
I did it by myself.
But :
He washes the baby/He washes it (not itself)
He looked at me.
We look at ourselves (I look at myself (not me) and she looks at herself (not her)
See you!

Hello !
No, Lemage, you shouldn't say "I wash myself!" ... But could say it if you were 2 because then it would be an achievement... at your age, it no longer is! You simply "wash"!
I've just finished a lesson about that point (test 116445)

Hello!

This is what I wrote to mah in response to her PM:
Hello, mah
It's not very common - wash (or 'get washed') is more often used - but it can be used sometimes.
It was rather introduced as an example of the use of myself. It's not a complete sentence : The nurses gave me some shaving foam and I shaved myself (because her question was also about shave)
Best regards.


See you!

Hello !
Let's be careful about the choice of the examples we give... Learners usually remember the one exception that shouldn't have been used... Have a wonderful holiday.

Hello everybody!
My question was Never about Shave. It was his own example! Please check my PM again! Thanks.


Re: Reflexive pronoun/Help by mah, posted on 22-07-2017 at 17:12:16
Hello everybody!
Thank you my good friends for your answers, but mostly I wanted to know the reason of your answer.
Any way my friend , my PM was not about Shave ! Please check it out. You will see that I'm right. It was your own example not mine. Best wishes.

Hello mah!
I don't see any reason for talking up... May I suggest you respect the people here?
We're not allowed to show others a private message but if you don't mind, I can post it on the forum.
See you!


Re: Reflexive pronoun/Help by mah, posted on 22-07-2017 at 18:56:03
Hello! But I'd said we canNot use these verbs with Reflexive pronouns! Best regards!.


Re: Reflexive pronoun/Help by lemagemasque, posted on 22-07-2017 at 19:15:35
I don't like liars. You asked me if I were correct about my use of "wash myself" because you had read that wash, dress and shave were incompatible with reflexive pronouns in English. I told you it was not the normal way we used them BUT they could be used in sentences like "The nurses gave me some shaving foam and I shaved myself (not them)" and "I want to dress myself. I'm old enough".
End of discussion. Thanks. I think you've got your answer. Bye.

Hello mah!
Yes, as lemage said you CAN use these verbs with a reflexive pronoun. He gave the example of shaving alone while in hospital, which may be an achievement when you have a broken hand or when you've just been operated on.
You've had your answers, and they're right.
