Washing only the most inimate portions of the anatomy in the hand basin, as opposed to a shower or full bath. Name derived from the british tradition of avoidaing becoming cold by fully declothing and getting wet in a cold climate. Also a time saving measure.
I was running late for work so I had a pommie wash and splashed on a bit more aftershave.
