Hello.

How would you say "dishcloth" in Norwegian?

It is a piece of material used to clean dish in a kitchen with no dishwasher. I mean one can clean dish with this by hand.

Here is a picture.

no suggestion

(I tried many dictionaries but haven't found)

Thank you.

    You should also note that, contrary to what's used on the continent (and perhaps elsewere) this tiny fellow would be found in almost every Norwegian home and is what we normally do dishes with.

    Admirably culturally informative! I lazily confined myself to the language... But would never do my dishes with a cloth either!

    OK so how would you call a dishcloth, if it were in use?

    Still "oppvaskklut" or "oppvaskfille". People usually have one around their kitchen, but it's generally more used for wiping the counter and sink and stuff, not so much for doing the actual dishes.

    Sorry if I/we confused you.
