Hi there,

Can you tell me if I use these two words properly, please?

My back pack was so full but I manage to squash/crush more cloths in it.

I squashed/crushed cloths on my bag as much as possible.


Thanks.

The second is not good at all. Forget it.

In the first, use 'squashed' and write 'clothes' instead of 'cloths'.

No.

Write: I squeezed as many clothes as possible in my bag.

Do you mean "squash" is the only correct word in these sentences, whereas "crush" is wrong in this meaning?

please advise?


Cheers.

I wouldn't use 'crush' as that implies causing damage to the clothes.

Thanks Mr.
