Grammar

A reflexive verb in Spanish always has a reflexive pronoun
(me, te, se, nos, os, se)
Eg:

Lavarse             =  to wash  (oneself)

Me lavo             =  I wash
Te lavas             =  you wash
Se lava.              =  He/She washes
Nos lavamos  = We wash
Os laváis           =  You wash
Se lavan             =  They wash

If you can’t see a reflexive pronoun, the verb is NOT reflexive.
Eg:
Lavar  =  to wash
Lavo Maggie   = I wash Maggie (not myself!)
