My inventionrelates more particularly to' an improved sanitary manicuring towel having one'portion of its length composed of crepe paper and an intermediate portion of a 5 combination of fabric'andpaper on'gtop of one another, and the other end'portion of fabric, sothat all of the portions united together form a single towel.
An important obj ectof my invention is to I provide a towel which is sanitary and sufiithe cuticle of a person by such bacterial mat ters, or forcethe short hairs notremoved from such towels, under the cuticle and so as to:form ulcerations upon the user. thereof. Further, the cost ofwashing such towelsis greatly in excess of the cost of producing the towels'made in accordance with my invention. c 7 a WVith this and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the
particularly pointed out and claimed, it being understood thatminor changes may be W without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention. 1 I The accompanying drawings will serve to illustrate my invention." 1
Figure 1 is a perspective view of'a continuous piece of crepe or absorbent paper.
Figure 2 is also a perspectiveview of a hand towel;
vention, havingcombined Figure 1 with that of Figure 2, so that a sanitary manicuring Y towel is formed thereby.
Figure 4c is a side view of Figure 3.
invention resides in the'novel combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter more made within the scope of whatfis claimed Figure 3 isa perspective view of the'inure 8 showing theparts enlarged or exaggerated.
Like reference characters refer to like members in the various figures.
Referring now moreparticularly to the drawings, this inventlon comprises a continuous pie'ceof crepe or'absorbent paper --,1O,Vbeing preferably twenty five inches in length and fifteen inches in'width, as shown in Figure 1, or any other desirable soft paper, 7
being of a contlnuous piece. 7
- Figure Qf'lS' a hand towel which consists of a doubled layer of fabric, gauze or cheesecloth 11 and 12, rectangular inv configuration, and.
upon one side thereof a piece of crepe or absorbent paper 13 is stitched thereon by means'of stitchings 14, so that a cheesecloth flap15 willextend crosswise thereof. The
whiting bleach cord-16 is enclosed in the ex- ,treme marginal lapped over end of the flap,
which cord is particularly adapted for they cleaning ofnails by manicurists when the same is operated as described hereinafter. However, itis to be understood that this whiting bleach cord;16 may be eliminated wherever it is not desired or essential in any of the figures shown. The hand towel shown in Figure 2 is finished 01f onthree sides so that the same will present a neatappearance. Figure 3 is an illustration of the sanitary manicuring towel combining Figure 2 together with that ofFigure 1. Itwill be noticedgthat in Figure 3'the absorbentpaper '10 is of a continuous piece so that a portion 1 thereof extends crosswiseas at 17,thisend b'eingbut of a single layer. 1 Theintermediate portion of this towel comprises four-layers,
two of which layers are of cheeseclothll and 12, (being doubled over upon'each other) and-the other two layers of which are of paper 13 and .10; The crosswise flap 15 is of course acontinuation ofthe doubled layers of cheesecloth 11 and 12and in the marginal end thereof the-whi ting bleach cord isin closed in the same manner as in Figure 2. c
In order to make the towel as shown in Figure 2 especially suitable as a sanitary napkin for women, it should be clearly understood I w I that layer 13 insuch an instanceis comprised Figure 5 is a fragmentary portion-of F igofgwadding sheetmaterial (manufactured cloth) backed by an absorbent paper. Likewise the same applies to Figure 3 when this form is desired to be used as a sanitary napkin for women; however, when so used for this purpose, it is to be understood that the whiting bleach cord 16 may be entirely eliminated.
In use, thesanitary manicuring towel (Fig ure 3) is laid over a support by the manicurist, such as a pillow or rail with the paper portion towards the person whose nails are under treatment, and the flexible portion of the fabric and paper combined is nearer to the operator. In using the sanitary manicuring towel,
the operator handles the fabric and combined The bottom ofathe flexible'fla-p is used by the .manicurist:especiallywhen the'flap is provided withithe whitingbleach cord, by sliding it-back and forth underneath the nails which, as a result-thereof, 1t willbe seen, the clean-- ing operation of that portion of the nails is well accomplished. The paper portion may be used by the person whose nails are under treatment, such as to dry the hands, etc. and
afterthe manicuring operation is completed, the towel is thrown away or otherwise destroyed. 7
Various changes may be made without departing from the spirit'of the invention, for example, instead of uniting the crepe or absorbent paper together with the fabric, cloth or gauze by means of stitching, means might be devised whereby such uniting might be accomplished by Inea11s'0f weaving them together in the process of the manufacture of the paper and gauze, or cloth, to form a towel.
Itis further to be understood that I'do not limit myself on length, width, thickness of the cheesecloth, fabric, or substitutes upon the paper or papersubstitutes forming thehand towels, or inanicuring towels, nor do 1 limit myself on the length, width or thickness of the sheet wadding utilized in connection with the sanitary napkin for women as previously set forth. Y
