Reference will now be hadto `the `drawing, wherein;`

Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view of a detergent holder in accordance with this in- 40 vention, Fig. 2 is a planof the same, and t Fig. 3 is a'horizontal sectional view Vtaken on the line HI*HI of Fig. 1.

The reference numeral 1 denotes a wall or other support provided with -a face plate :5 2 that is secured Ahereto by screws 3 and 4 or other fastening means. The face plate 2 has the longitudinal edges thereof provided with `guides 5 for a head 6, carried by the inner end of a rectangular sleeve 7 the head 6 being placed in engagement with the guides 5 prior. to' mountingthe screw 3'in the wall or support 1. l Fixed in the sleeve 7 by a rivet 8 -or lother The top of the receptacle 11 is closed, as 75 at 22 and has a central depressed portion 23 providing a socket 24. The bottomyoffthe socket 24 has an opening 25 `for the upper' The top of the receptacle 11 .has a filling opening 28 normally closed by a screw plug 29. The lling opening 28 permits of a pow- 9o der1 or liquid being placed within the receptac e.

f When a powdered. detergent is used. in the receptacle '11, the top of the receptacle is. gripped by the hand, the push button 26v 95 pressed by the thumb or finger to open the valve` 20,1and then the receptacle is shaken by rapidly raising and lowering the-same whereby. the powder within the receptacle willpass through the openings 19 and drop 100 on to the hand held under the receptacle or into a basin-over whichA a receptacle is 'located. vWhenI the receptacle israised and lowered, the head 6 slides-between the guides tacle 11 contalns a liquid, it is not necessary .to raise andlower the same. `The receptacle l1` is preferably made of a vitreous material and the remainder of' the device of light and durable metal. 119
