I had it on one hand and for the most part wiped it off then went to the bathroom an hour later and forgot I hadn't washed my hand. After an hour and wiping it on clothing I should be safe right?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  You can not get pregnant from having semen on your hands and wiping yourself.  Semen outside the body will dry and sperm dies rather quickly.
