Piece Of Cloth

It all fit together rather neatly. I could never stomach the flower-child twaddle of the '60s crowd and I was ready to believe that our flag was just an old piece of cloth and that patriotism was just some quaint relic, best left behind us.

But not that piece of old cloth. To me, that stood for unthinking patriotism. It meant about as much to me as that insipid peace sign that was everywhere I looked: just another symbol of a generation's sentimentality, of its narcissistic worship of its own past glories.

Hardware stores in the U.S. sell packages of "new rags." Not surprisingly, they are often named "bag-o-rags" or "box-o-rags." Colloquially, "rag" is what the majority of native English speakers would use to describe a "cloth used to mop the floor".

I'd never use "floorcloth" and wouldn't have thought of it in 1,000 years. When I first read the compound word in your question, "rug" was the first thing that came to mind. A rapid search on the internet confirms this perspective. It's the wrong rabbit to chase.

The general term is just mop which can be used as the whole tool but also just as part of it, to be more specific a mop cloth and a mop stick (I presume) are a mop but a mop cloth can also just be called a mop. Since this is confusing there are apparently many brand names which are used instead (e.g. swiffer sweeper) - like mentioned in JBH's answer.

Reflecting on evolving lifestyles, the brand creates original clothing made for everyday living that resonate with qualities found in products essential to our modern lives: practicality and the beauty of functionality.

It integrates new ideas and experimental processes, thereby making clothing of ease and comfort that bring about a sense of joy and new discoveries in everyday living.

As shown by Kin'emon, the fruit has many useful properties. The apparel generated can be used as disguises, but the effectiveness of the disguise heavily depends on the user's capability of imagining it. Apart from serving as disguises, the clothes created by the fruit's power can also be used for other conveniences, such as keeping wearers warm while in a cold environment.[2] This fruit can also create functioning armors and weapons such as swords.[5]

Kin'emon apparently needs to create clothes from leaves, stones, or other small objects, so if there are none in the immediate vicinity then the fruit may not work. The clothes also do not appear to be permanent, and only last as long as they are worn.[2] Furthermore he must first visualize the appearance of the clothes, otherwise his creations would be limited.[3] Besides that, the user suffers from the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.

By placing a leaf or stone on someone's head, Kin'emon can convert it by saying "Poof" (ドロン, Doron?) into the necessary garb for as long as he can visualize it. The clothes created remain as long as they are worn, but will disappear if removed.[2]

Item: Marilyn Monroe's "Happy Birthday Mr. President" DressWinning Bid: $1,267,500Sold: 1999When Marilyn Monroe delivered a sultry "Happy Birthday" serenade to President John F. Kennedy on May 19, 1962, the blonde bombshell wore a flesh-colored, curve-hugging, jewel-encrusted dress so tight and sheer that, according to legend, Monroe was sewn into the gown and wore nothing under it. The one-of-a-kind sheath was purchased in 1999 by the aptly named Manhattan-based collectible company Gotta Have It! after the dress was put up for auction by the widow of Monroe's acting coach, Lee Strasberg. When asked by reporters why he would spend a fortune on a piece of fabric that originally cost $12,000, company president Robert Schargen proclaimed that he would have paid twice that: "We stole it," he boasted.

You may be surprised to learn that toilet and the noun toil, meaning "snare" or "trap" (as in "caught in the toils of love"), have a common ancestor: the Middle French word toile, meaning "cloth" or "hunting net." How toil developed from the French word needs no explanation; on the other hand, how toilet as a name for a modern bathroom fixture developed from a word for "cloth" is a head-scratcher.

The Middle French word 'toile' ("cloth") had a diminutive form: 'toilette', or "small piece of cloth." This word became 'toilet' in English, and referred to a cloth put over the shoulders while dressing the hair or shaving.

In Middle French, the diminutive form of toile was toilette, which means "small piece of cloth" but which also came to be used for more specific senses (many of which are reflected in the semantic development of the English word). English speakers borrowed the word in the 16th century, and eventually settled on the spelling toilet while still making use of toilette in the "grooming" sense. The word was originally used for a wrapper or covering for clothes and later for a cloth put over the shoulders while dressing the hair or shaving.

From the "shoulder cloth" sense, toilet came to refer first to a cloth covering a dressing table (or vanity) then to the articles on the table, then to the table itself. Next, a more abstract meaning developed, as the word was applied to the whole process of washing, grooming, and dressing, especially at the beginning of the day or for a special occasion. This use of the word is often found in the constructions "at one's toilet" or "to make one's toilet."

In the case of Grey and Mono-colored Plain Fabric:The total quantity of material in a piece is the sum of the quantity of yarn and the quantity of sizing or finishing materials in the cloth. Again the total quantity of yarn in a piece will be the sum of the quantity of warp and weft yarns in the piece.Fig: Mono-colored Plain FabricThus,

Total weight of a yarn in a piece,= Weight of warp yarn + weight of weft yarn.Total weight of a piece,= Weight of warp yarn + weight of weft yarn + weight of size or finishing materials.To calculate the total quantity of warp and weft yarns in a piece, the following particulars should be known,Total length or length of the piece and regain or take-up of warp.Ends per inch in the cloth and cloth width, or reed count and reed width.Reed width or cloth width and regain or percentage of contraction of weft yarn.Counts of warp and weft yarns.Calculation of the Total Quantity of Materials in a Piece of Cloth with ExampleExample:A cloth 44.5 inches wide on a 72s Stockport reed, is woven with 32s warp and 40s weft and 64 picks per inch. Selvedges 0.25 inch on each side, are drawn 4 ends per dent. The count of the selvedge yarn is same as that of the warp yarn. The length of the piece is 40 yds. If the regain of warp is 5%, calculate-Total number of ends in the warp.Total length of warp yarn in hanks.Total weight of warp yarn in the piece.Total weight of weft yarn in the piece.Total weight of a yarn in the piece.Solution:(1) Tape length, 041b061a72
