I11 i Mi I ll WITNESSES INVENTOR a Dawdflaydias.

flBe itknown that I, Davm Maneomoma ands resident To all'whm n 'it my citizen of the United States,

vented a new and ImprovedMo' Myvin'vention' relates to holders for'mops used for the purpose ofcleaning'floors; and 1t comprises improved means for securing cloth or mop material on the en'd of az handle by means of which the'mop is-moved over the floor or other surface to be cleaned.

. It is the object of my invention to provide an. attachment for the end of a mop. handle I the end of the. handle.

consisting of cotto which will enable the mopmaterial to be readily and t is like having an end which is screwed into n waste, or cloth is slipped upon the turns of the spiral frame. thus manipulated;

' The material which is slip spiral turns pf the-frame 1 an used for cleanlengths of slasher yarn or flax. This waste iscombed and cut as shown at 10; and-11 is a strip oflinen or other cloth whichis sewed across the parallel lengths in the middle. J The lengths o? waste are then folded over upon each other and the ed es ofthe cloth 11 stitehedeto gether, ass own in Fig. 6. The lower end 5 of the frame 1 is slipped through the cloth 11; and it will be understood that the finished mop material will be made of such length as to enable it to fill up the length of the wire forming the spiral frame 1, from the end 5 to a point adjacent the up er end 6; The mop can he slipped on the v e 1 from the end- 6 before the frame is screwed to the handle, if desired. Instead of the material above, mentioned. I may use a strip of felt folded or plaited together, asshown iuFig. 8 andhaving a 'numberiof alined holes 13 alonx its upper edge. These holes will enable 't and the felt strip will further be formed with a number of projections or flaps 14., which will wipe over surface to be cleaned. In forming the mo 'material'from cotton slasher waste, I We erably take long lengths of this material, and after combing them straight I wind the same around a frameof suitable shape. The strips 11 are then sewed across theilengths of waste at diametrically opposite pomts, and the waste is then cut atdiametricallv opposite points between the stripe of 010 besecilred- 'zhaving a threaded projecting 4.

end of the wire is bent diametrically. across; the bottom of the framework, as shown at 5. f The opposite end is bent upward,lasshown ing purposes is preferably made of suitable cotton waste or cotton into suitable, lengths to'condition it for use,"-

. e wire of c the frame 1 to he slipped through-the same-:1

the floor or other- Patent 11. This will make lengths of mop material from slasher waste of the kind shown in Fig. 6; and when the edges of the strip '11 are stitched together, the mop can be readily slipped upon the wire forming the spiral frame 1, in the manner above described.

From the above description it will be seen that I have devised a simple, novel and eliicient support for the cleansing material which is to be used in cleaning, floors or other surfaces, said support being constructed to allow the mop material to be easily and quickly, attached thereto, and to be itself easily and quickly secured to the end of the handle by which the mop is to be operated.

I wish to have it understood that I may make certain changes in the shape. size and arrangement'of'the parts. such as fairly fall within the scope and spirit of my invention. Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters 1. A support for mop material c01npris ing a framework having a number of turns and having a member.extending across the bottom thereof to prevent the mop material supported by said turns from slipping off the same.

2. A support for mop material, consisting of a framework comprising a number of turns toreceive the mop n-iaterial. said turns being' connected together and being shaped to enable the mop material to be slipped on each one of said turns so that said mop material will be engaged and supported by each of said turns, and means projecting centrally at one end of said support to secure said support to a handle.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing, witnesses.
