Re: Guest (2 posts up)

A clout (pronounced 'cloot') in my neck of the woods is a cloth used for washing dishes or wiping surfaces.

It can also mean 'a thump' (pronouced 'clowt'). e.g. "I'll give you a clout if you say that again" or "The door wouldn't shut so I gave it a clout"

I have also heard it used for clothing as quoted above, "Ne'er cast a cloot 'til May be oot".
