    Rhymes with moths.

    One cleaning rag = one cleaning cloth.
    Two cleaning cloths. clawths/clahths

    (The word "clothes" is for garments.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
