This invention has reference to a sanitary mitt or glove for use by attendants in hospitals, sanatoriums or the like, so that the hands of the attendants may be covered while handling hospital apparatus or materials. which i may be germ carriers.

'Ihe object of the inventionA is to 'provide a mitt or glove of this character constructed of a sheet of tissue paper and folded in such a way that the hand of the user may be positionedtherein, the device acting as a glove or mitt.

With the foregoing and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed, may be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.

Referring to the drawing:

Figure 1 is a view illustrating a sheet of toilet tissue paper, the dotted lines indicating lines on which the sheet is folded in the formation of a'mitt.

Figure 2 is a view illustrating the sheet in its folded condition.

3-3 of Figure 2.

Referring to the drawing in detail, the reference character 5 designates a pluralityof super-posed sheets oftoilet tissue paper which are so constructed that when folded in accordance with the invention, a glove or mitt will be provided which may be readily slid over the hand of the user.

rIhe reference.character 6 designates dotted lines along which the sheets of paper are folded, the dotted lines dividing the sheets into sections A, B, and C, while the dotted line 7 which is disposed transversely of the sheets and arranged in spaced relation with one edge of the sheets divides the sheets into upper and lower sections.

The dotted lines 8 indicate the lines on which the corners are folded inwardly after the sheets have been folded in the formation of a glove or mitt.

Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on line In the construction of the mitt,'one edge of the body portion is folded along the line 9 to reinforce the thereof, whereupon one side of the body portion of which the section C forms a part, is folded inwardly along the nearest line 6 so that section C overlies section B, whereupon section A is folded over the sections I3 and C.

T he upper portion of the body portion is now folded downwardly along the line 7 providing a reinforcing palm section 10. After this fold has been made, bodv portion as shown in the corners of the Figure 2, andl indicated by the reference character ll, are folded inwardly to positions as shown in full lines in Figure 2. i

The construction thus presented is one which will permit the hand of a person to be positioned in the mitt when it becomes neccssary to handle hospital apparatus which may be germ carriers.

It will further be seen that the construction may be made at an exceptionally low cost to the end that it may be discarded after use.

I claim: 1. In a device of the character body portion formed described,a of a plurality of sheets of toilet tissue paper, the ends thereof beingl folded inwardly and overlying each other,

the corners of the body portion being folded inwardly to lock the inwardly folded ends in position, and said body portion adapted to fit over the hand Iof a person using the device.

2. In a device of the character described, a body portion embodying a plurality of sheets of tissue paper, the folded downwardly,

upper edge thereof being the ends of the body portion being folded inwardly and overlapping each other, the corners of the body portion being folded inwardly to lock the ends in po` sition, and said body portion adapted to be positioned over the hand of the user.
