Is referring to "sponging" a jacket a similar American/Brit English split? That was a new one for me. I knew what was meant, but I'd never heard that turn of phrase before.
ETA for clarity: the phrase is used in a way that seems to mean cleaning a jacket, and as part of a routine of getting dressed for an event.
