how to stop water from spraying when disconnecting the snap-on adapter from the

I have just purchased a portable washing machine that I hook up to my bathroom sink by way of a snap-on adapter.
Whenever I disconnect the intake hose from the faucet the built up water pressure sprays out. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

There should be a pressure release button on the back of the adapter.

I am posting some images to show the type of intake hose connector I have and the faucet is just an adapter I purchased for snap-on hoses. Besides the small tab on the on the connector there isn't anything else. The connector pulls back and then it goes on the faucet piece. Do you have a URL for the type of adapter you are talking about?

I'd probably just disconnect it with a washcloth wrapped around it. Seems like it should have some sort of pressure release that vents into the sink though.

I got a good tip from a YouTube video that was reviewing a portable washing machine. It works. What you do is, and it is a little bit of a bother, turn off the faucet, then turn on the washing machine, as if to do a load of laundry, and it will pull the built-up water from the hose into the washer, then Presto! no more spray bath when disconnecting.

That crossed my mind but I had second thoughts & didn't post it. Another thought was find an intermediary adapter with a pressure release.
