The invention relates to improvement in .i polishing cloths and more particularly to i cloths arranged to be easily renewed and to prevent the absorbent materials with which the cloths may be saturated from being, in use, in contact with the users hands. The object of the'iinprovement is to provide the polishing cloth in such form as to be easily Vapplied to its duty and to be of such arranged construction as to permit used portions of the cloth to bedisplaced by fresh and unused portions. Another object is to prevent the soiling of the hands or clothing of the user from Contact with the impregnated l5 or soiled polishing cloth.
@ne form of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which Figure 1, is a modified perspective of the polis ing mitt; Figures 2, 3, and 4, showing views '-0 of the mitt at successive stages in its manufacture.
In Figure 2 of the drawing, the reference character designates a blank of suitable textile fabric which is to be made up into a hand covering, preferably a mitten, while 16 designates a plurality of plies or polishing members of suitable textile fabric placed flat upon the hand portion of the blank and secured thereto, as by a line of stitches 18 extending along the center of the plies of polishing members. ber is shorter than the blank 15, the ortion thereof which projects beyond the pies be- 'ing intended for the gauntlet portion of the fsecured thereto, is folded along the line of `.stitches 18 to bring the folded plies within the folded blank, as shown in Figure 3, after which the free edges of the blank and the free edges of the plies are. stitched together to form the seam 19 and the mitten.l The stitches 19 extend through the plies of olishing material across the outer end of t e mitten and inwardly along one edge ofthe device to about the point 17 so as to secure the mitten and the polishing 'plies together. From the point 17 to the extremity of the gauntlet portion 4of the mitten, the stitches 19 extend through the mitten material only, leaving the edges of the plies free andvunconnected., The device is now completed `but all 4of the plies of polishing material are at the inside of the mitten. The mitten is in the form of a bag` and the plies are also in the form of bags Each polishing mem.

complete nested Within the mitten. The device is then turned inside out so 'as to bring the plies of polishing material upon the exterior of. the ,mitten in 'nested form and embracing the mitten-as shown iii Figure l1, wherein the free corners of certain ot plies have been shown turned backto disclose the succes` sive plies. y
In operation, the user draws the mitten upon the hand the gauntlet covering the cuffs or sleeves of his raiment and applies the polishin cloths to the work-exhausting the utility o the surfaces exposed-and then bringing new surfaces to the front by partially clenching the fingers of the hand within the mitt and lifting a used section and so to speak, Skinning it over the finger end of the mitten to assume a similar position as before but with its former inside surface now upon the outside and the fresh surface of section number two being now exposed and in position for service. It is clear that this operationmay be repeated as often as desired either from front to back or the reverse until all the fresh surfaces ofthe poiishing cloth have been used up.
From the drawing it may be apparent that each pair of polishing cloth sections as constructed make a form of sack with one end open and one side partially open and the complete polishing unit might be said to be made of a plurality of such sacks disposed one within another in successive arrangement the whole aggregation being finally superimposed upon the hand of a suitable mitten and appropriately attached so that 'in use it is to all intents and purposes iiite ral with the mitten.
n practice the mitten nated with vsome coatin to make it repellant of the absorbing c einicals which are used in the manufacture of the polishing cloths, thus preventing such chemicals from contacting with the users hands.
Having thus described and illustrated'my invention what I claim is:
1. In a. polishing device, a mitten having a plurality of polishing elements permanently attached thereto along one ed e around the finger end and part way onIy along the'other edge of said mitten, whereby each polishing element may be reversed proper is impregvupon the mitten without removaltherefroin.
individually turned inside out upon the mitten and without removal therefrom'.
3. A polishing device comprising a hand covering and a nested series of iiexible bag- ,shaped polishing membersy embracing the hand covering and connected thereto at the outer end thereof, whereby the bag-shaped members may be individually turned inside out upon the hand covering and without removal therefrom.
4. A polishing device comprising a hand :covering and a nested series of flexible bagshaped polishing members embracing the hand covering and connected thereto at they outer end thereof, each bag-shaped member beine open along one edge thereof whereby the bag-shaped members may be individually turned inside out upon the hand covering and Without removal therefrom.
shaped polishing members embracing thehand covering and connected thereto at the outer end thereof, each bag-shaped member being open along one edge thereof inwardly from the open endof the member part way towards the closed end thereof, whereby the bag-shaped member may be individually turned inside out u on the hand covering and without remova therefrom.
6. A polishing device of the character described, comprising a hand covering, a nested series of bag shaped polishing members embracing the hand covering, and means connecting the hand coverin and the bag shaped polishing members an permitting ofthe beg shaped members being individually turned inside out upon the Initten Without removal therefrom.
