can you get pregnant if you touch your vagina immediately right after you wash sperm off your hands ? (still wet from washing)

Very unlikely: the number of sperm would be extremely small. Fertility rate plummets with lowering sperm count (from fertility studies). So, about zero risk.

No: Sperm does not survived the wash even if your hand still wet
