    How to call the detergent that we use to wash dishes? Either dish detergent for hand washin, or dishwasher detergent for the machine.

    How to call the gloves when we wash dishes? Rubber gloves

    How to call the cloth (with out stick) that we use to clean the floor? Cleaning cloth/floor washing cloth.

    How to call things that inside the washing machine for washing? (washing? Wash?) Laundry

    How to call the thing that we use to wash dishes? This depends on what you use. Some people use dish cloths, others brushes, others small mops.

    How to call the thing that we use to wipe the washed dishes? Tea towel

    How to call the detergent that we use to wash dishes? Washing up liquid

    How to call the gloves when we wash dishes? Rubber gloves. Stretch one over you head to make a great chicken impersonation.

    How to call the cloth (with out stick) that we use to clean the floor? Floor cloth

    How to call things that inside the washing machine for washing? (washing? Wash?) The washing

    How to call the spray we use when we kill insects? Fly spray

    My answers are BE, others would refer to washing up liquid as detergent etc.
