Description
    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    1. Field of the Invention
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates to a disposable tissue structure, and an improved disposable structure which is capable of instantly fabricating a disposable wet tissue in such a manner that a compressed dry tissue fabricated by rolling and compressing a certain shaped dry non-woven fabric absorbs an integrally provided liquid for thereby changing a compressed dry tissue to a disposable wet tissue without using a separately provided liquid compared to a conventional art, so that a user can use a disposable wet tissue anytime and anywhere, and a disposable wet tissue is naturally rotten and decomposed without producing an environmental problem, thus implementing an environment friendly tissue.
  • [0003]
    2. Description of the Background Art
  • [0004]
    As an industry is advanced, and due to its convenience, the use of a disposable tissue is gradually increased. Recently, the use of a compressed tissue(hereinafter referred to as CT) is sharply increased based on its small volume and certain shaped structure.
  • [0005]
    Referring to FIGS. 1A through 1G, the fabrication of the disposable compressed tissue of the conventional art will be described.
  • [0006]
    First, as shown in FIG. 1A, a paper, pulp, or preferably a non-woven fabric 10 having a certain side like a handkerchief is provided. As shown in FIG. 1B, the thusly prepared handkerchief sized non-woven fabric 10 is folded by a certain number in a certain direction, preferably, in a longitudinal direction. As shown in FIGS. 1C and 1D, the folded non-woven fabric 10 is rolled in a certain direction for thereby fabricating a cylindrically rolled non-woven fabric 10. The cylindrical non-woven fabric 10 is inserted into the interior of a cylinder 11 and is compressed using a piston 12 for thereby fabricating a compressed and size-decreased non-woven fabric 10 which is very hard, so that the compressed tissue 13 of FIG. 1F is fabricated. At this time, the compressed tissue 13 is dry and very hard like stone. The thusly fabricated compressed tissues 13 are stored into the interior of a vinyl pack 14.
  • [0007]
    Referring to FIGS. 2A through 2D, the operation of the conventional compressed tissue will be briefly described.
  • [0008]
    As shown in FIG. 2A, a plurality of compressed tissues 13 are stored in the vinyl pack 14. When a user wants to use the compressed tissue 13, the user takes out one compressed tissue 13 stored in the vinyl pack 14. A liquid, preferably, water stored in a kettle 15 which is provided separately from the compressed tissue 13 is added to the compressed tissue 13 as shown in FIG. 2B. When the compressed dry tissue 13 absorbs liquid in the above manner, the compressed tissue 13 is recovered to the wet tissue 13 which has a certain shape before the tissue 13 is not compressed, for thereby fabricating a cylindrical wet tissue 16 as shown in FIG. 2C. The thusly fabricated cylindrical wet tissue 16 is unfolded, so that it is possible to fabricate the wet tissue 16 as shown in FIG. 2D. At this time, the thusly fabricated wet tissue 16 has the same construction as the non-woven fabric 10 before the non-woven fabric 10 is rolled and compressed, but the thusly fabricated tissue 16 is wet. Therefore, the above wet tissue may be used like the commonly used wet tissue.
  • [0009]
    However, there are the following problems in the conventional compressed tissue even though its convenience.
  • [0010]
    First, in order to use the dry compressed tissue, a certain liquid like water must be externally provided. Therefore, in the conventional art, water must be provided in a separate container in order to use the conventional compressed tissue or a user must carry a certain liquid or water separately from the compressed tissue or must move to a certain place where water is provided. There are much inconvenience for using the conventional compressed tissue.
  • [0011]
    Second, since the conventional dry compressed tissue is stored in a certain simple vinyl pack without a certain function, an external appearance of the vinyl with compressed tissues is bad for women to use for a portable item.
  • [0012]
    Third, since the conventional dry compressed tissues are stored in a simple vinyl pack, etc. when a user takes out one among a plurality of the compressed dry tissues, the user may touch other compressed tissues for thereby polluting other compressed tissue by his hand, so that it is impossible to implement a sanitary use of the compressed tissue.
  • [0013]
    Fourth, the vinyl pack with compressed tissues is opened whenever the compressed tissue is used, so that a certain foreign pollutant may be penetrated into the vinyl pack through an opened side, whereby it is impossible to implement a sanitary use of the compressed tissue.
  • [0014]
    Fifth, when a user wants to use the compressed tissue, the compressed must absorb a certain liquid like water. At this time, if the compressed tissue absorbs water over a certain amount, the wet tissue having too water is fabricated, so that it is difficult to use the same. If the compressed tissue absorbs less amount of liquid, it is impossible to implement a wet tissue having a proper amount of water.
