You are all so shallow!
I'm off to iron my Cruisewear!

Here in Aussie/Oz (whatever) we tend to call them 'whitegoods' rather than whiteware.

You get to iron Tom Cruise's clothes??? (He's from here,
incidentally.) What does his under'wear' look like? I
take it back about not wanting to know what anyone
has in their drawers! Yee-ee-haw! (Oh, now I'm taking a
discussion downhill myself! Oh, the shame!)

lusy said <I fear that glass is in great danger of becoming synonymous with "transparent drink container" as in the phrase "plastic glasses", which I heard used just the other day.>
In Indonesian "gelas" already means just that. Glass the substance is "kaca".

We also call spectacles glasses and these days they are often made of plastic, so that's another kind of plastic glasses.
I have no knowledge of Tom Cruise's underwear (Jackie, I'm shocked, I thought you were such a nice girl).
