The dish cloth episode - cleaning day part 2

Dish cloth
Husband called me, 'Where's the dish-cloth?'
'I don't know.'
'Are you washing them?'

tea towel versus dish cloth
Tea towel 

I gave up trying to clean the bathroom and went down to the kitchen.
'There it is,' I said, pointing to the sink where Husband had put the dish-cloth in a bowl of soapy water.
'No, not that! Those things,' Husband pointed to the towel rail where we keep the tea-towels.
'Tea-towels you mean?'
Husband paused only momentarily before replying, 'No. Dish cloths. They're cloths that we use to dry dishes. Dish cloths.'

I don't call them anything since, living on my own, I'm the only one who uses them ; but this has now made me feel I should dignify them with a name.
A J cloth called Jeremy ...

once went for a walk ... please continue, sonata.

That's a good idea though. If we named our j-cloths there would be less - or possibly more - confusion.

I can honestly say this once I agree with YOU :-) :-) , a Dish cloth is what you wash Dishes with , and a Tea Towel is what you dry them with :-)
