You're washing yourself! (i.e. You do it on your own!)
I thought when it means on your own it is 'tout seul'. Is this phrase idiomatic, and doesn't necessary mean 'washing'? I am confused with i.e. you do it on your own. For example, can I use this phrase to say a kid baked a cake on his own?
In this example and talking to a child you could say both -
Tu te laves tout seul/ toi-même = You wash yourself
and if you used a non-reflexive verb it would be the same -
Tu fais ça tout seul /toi même = You do that on your own
Tu fais ton gâteau tout seul/toi même = You make your cake on your own
Hope this helps!
