CLEANING PAD Filed July 3l, 1959 John fr. Pager r nl Patented Mar. 4, 1941 UNITED STATES PATENT oFFlcE l Claim.
This invention relates to cleaning and polishing devices and more particularly a window cleaning pad.
The primary object of this invention resides in the provision of a cleaning pad adapted to be used in removing insects and bugs from the headlights and windows of automobiles.
Another object of this invention resides in the provision of a cleaning pad adapted to retain moisture therein over a long period of time.
A further object of this invention resides in the provision of a cleaning pad having reasonably rough outer surfaces adapted to be moistened by a moisture retaining element therein.
A still further object of this invention resides in the particular method of assembling the elements into a cleaning pad.
With these and other objects in View this invention resides in certain novel features of co-nstruction and arrangement of elements toy be hereinafter more fully set forth in the specification, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and pointed out in the appended claim and, while this disclosure depicts my present conception of the invention, the right is reserved to resort to such changes in construction and arrangement of elements as come within the scope of the claim, such elements to include all other suitable materials.
In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this application:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a window cleaning pad as constructed in accordance with this invention.
Figure 2 is an enlarged cross sectional view approximately on line 2 2 of Figure 1.
In the present illustration of this invention the numeral 5 designates, in general, a Window cleaning pad which preferably consists of a substantially rectangular sheet of heavy burlap 6 which is folded upon itself as at 1 over a sheet of chamois skin 8 and sewed along its edges by a double row of stitches 9 and I 0, the inner row of which passes through the chamois skin While the outer row of which binds the edges of the burlap to conceal the edges of the chamois skin and provide a smooth and neatly finished product.
In order to prevent stretching and crimping of the chamois skin between the folds of burlap and to maintain the cleaning pad in substantially ilat condition the same is sewed from corner to corner by rows of stitching Il, the same also acting to prevent the burlap from sliding over the chamois skin which becomes slippery when wet.
While the sheet of burlap is herein shown as being folded to enclose the chamois skin and form opposite cleaning surfaces, it is within the purview of this invention to provide separate sheets of the same and sew the chamois skin therebetween in a manner similar to that heretofore set forth.
With this invention fully set forth it is manifest that a window cleaning pad is provided which will readily remove insects, bugs and other foreign matter from the windshield and other glass elements of automobiles and, through the simplicity of the construction thereof, it can be cheaply manufactured and sold at a reasonable price.
Having thus described my invention what I claim and desire to protect by Letters Patent is A window cleaning pad consisting of a substantially rectangular sheet of burlap folded upon itself and having one end edge folded backl to lie beneath the other end edge, a sheet of chamois located between the folds of burlap With one edge abutting the backwardly folded edge of the burlap, a double row of stitching extending around the periphery of the pad, one row of said stitching passing through the folded back edge of the burlap, the bottom end beneath and the edge resting thereon the other roW of stitching eX- tending through both layers of the burlap and the periphery of the chamois, and diagonal stitching extending between the corners of the pad and passing through both layers of burlap and the chamois.
