    strip and stripe

    I've looked up both words in dictionaries. However I found they both have very similar meanings. Can anyone explain the difference between them and show me when to use which word?
    Cheers,


    Oops,sorry I meant strip and stripe!

    Cheers,
    I am not surprised that you found very similar meanings for two identical words.
