Application filed December 17, 1925. Serial No. 76,021. I

This invention relates to an applicator cap designed for attachment'to a bottle for so that a rubbing action will not tend to close the cleanser feeding apertures and which is, however, sufficiently resilient for the purpose.

The invention comprises the novel structure hereinafter described and more particularly pointed out and defined inthe appended claim.

'In the accompanying drawings, which illustrate apreferred embodiment of this invention and in which similar reference numerals refer to similar features in the different views: I

Figure 1 is an elevational view of abottle equipped with my novel applicator cap.

F igure 2 is an enlarged elevational View of the cap. 7 V

Figure 3 is an. enlarged sectional view through the cap, V

Figure 4 is an enlarged top plan view of the cap.

As illustrative of this invention, there is shown a cap 1, thimble-like in form, having a lower marginal flange 2 for engagement with the rim of a metal member 3 threaded upon the neck of the bottle for confining the cap in position.

This cap is made of some flexible but coinparatively stiff material; rubber that has been vulcanized to the proper degree of stiff ness may answer/ In the top of the cap are apertures 4 to allow the cleansing fluid to seep therethrough. On account of the hard or stiff character of the material of the cap, these'holes will not be closed during a rubbing action. In order to give this cap a certain amount of flexibility which is necessary, a V-shaped groove 5 is made circumferentially of the interior whereby the wall is sufliciently weakened to allow. a certain amount of flexibility.

I am aware that changes may be made,

and details of construction may be varied without" departing from the principles of this invention, and I therefore do not purpose limlting the patent granted hereon,

otherwise than necessitated by the scope of the claim. I claim as my invention:

An applicator cap, comprising a thimbleshaped member of flexible and resilient material having an attaching flange about its open end, apertures provided in its top, and

a circumferential groove formed in the interior surface of said member adjacent said apertures.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name.
