dontcry commented on the word tow rag
You wear a "do-rag" on your head (bandana for a hair "do").
You use a "dew-rag" to wipe off the porch furniture in the morning.
Neither of these places should have you-know-what jam.
Is this, or a toe-rag, related to a do-rag? (Or is it dew-rag?)
plethora commented on the word tow rag
Yes, I generally imagine it as being used to clean out you-know-what jam.

I like it when Brits say it.
Might be good for wiping up, you-know-what jam.
yarb commented on the word tow rag
I agree, plethora. I imagine a scruffy rag strapped round some urchin's foot in lieu of a shoe.

But toe-rag has such a good ring to it. I much prefer it.
johnmperry commented on the word tow rag
A wastrel; someone beneath contempt.(Incorrectly spelled ‘toe-rag’ in modern English). A tow-rag was a rag made of ‘tow’, or hemp, used to
staunch wounds by naval surgeons and then thrown away.
