The request for this word was: "A thing that Terrans use for cleaning things and also bodies. The English word is based on an animal living in the sea, but in daily usage, it is made of artificial hard foam."  [note]

More Information

Any rag or cloth or sponge (natural or artificial) used for that sort of purpose is a va'chum. This does not refer to the animal. Maltz knew the word and the concept, but he said that in Klingon culture, it doesn't come up much.
