Topic #1 for Defeat the winter doldrums swap

Weekly Topic: Dishrag. Dishcloth. Face cloth. I've seen folks get all fired up in forums when someone refers to their knit or crochet creation as a dishrag, as that's somehow offensive to them! When you're working on yours, what do you call them? Also, is there a difference between a dishrag and a dishcloth? How about a facecloth? Are they all really the same thing?

All names are fine with me - they just define the use. They are all the same thing to me when I am making them - once I use them that is when I name them. I don't multi use them. If I use it as a dishcloth it stays a dishcloth and if I use it as a face or wash cloth it remains one.
