33 Claims. (01. 132- 13) invention relates primarily to a personal cleaning the nails.

toilet article, primarily for It consists essentially of a plurality of individual nail"cleanin8..instrumentalities each of which after useis readily disposable, preferably comrations. s-Such cleaners are preferably combined with means for filing the nails and other-means :for pushing back the cuticle from the exposed portionxofthenail, the whole being in, .the tom of an inexpensive and compact device, 'of such .-.::siz,;shape and general construction asca'n readilyribelcarried on the person or in a woman's handbag.

. My invention provides a practical device for meeting the above need, and also can be effectively used within the home. V

7 According to this invention, I provide a small container within which a plurality of individual detachable nail cleaners are mounted, or these cleaners and their container may be formed of a single sheet. Each cleaner is relatively long: and narrow and is preferably detachably secured to pne adjacent thereto by its longitudinal edges, the innermostcleaner being so joined to the body formed therewith. Each cleaner has two pointed ends which protrude slightly andpreferably carry an antiseptic. The user opens the cvontainer and without necessarily removing the topmost cleaner employsit to Thereupon he removes it cleaner and the innermost these lines bein scoring or perforations, percleavage between each formed by cuts and mit eachcleaner to be separated after use.

has the advantageofeconommo; production and also that each-cleanersafter nse.maytasilikbe detached and destroyed. I eflo-lthisiend itgisl-hishly desirable that each cleaners-be ins am-t e next to it by its *relativelyilonggsidfi. :instegad of 25 by its short side. rwithsuch:preferredaarrangement, each cleanerjis -supported by the other cleaners and the entire containerand can be used without detachment from thegcontainer. There-' ends of the cleaner, this substance ample, either cotton, or cloth; or a; soft paper of the type which-is, used ,as-ag.=leanng tissue. An important feature cfvmy-invention inione preferred form is--that thefindivldual cleaners may be formed from a-single'sheet, each in part separated from a ,5. neighboring cleaner by. lines of cleayage formed-in part'by cuttingand in part. by scoring or perforation, andz thensfolded in the middle and back upon itself to form a'small compact ackage of .cleanerseach'composed of two layers of what was previouslya single sheet. Before this folding operation, however, cotton, cloth, soft paper, or the like may be placed upon sheet 'material, cardboard, lfpreferablystifl, -..0r

they and the soft material then therebetween into a single unit, the soft will be readily, understood that such an arrangement if a soft material is employed much lessens the cost of production. I 4

Alternatively to this arrangement, I may form the individual cleaners in a single sheet, force each cleaner out of place so that cross section appears in folds apply an adhesive to 'one side. the sheet so that the adjacent as an accordion, and then collapsesurfaces of every second set of folds adhereto 2 2,se4,oss one half of the sheet adjacent one set of pointed into which sheets of detachable nail cleaners are ends, or adjacent both sets of ends. when the slipped, the case being refilled when one group of containers is completely used.. Preferably this case contains an opening by means of which access is given-to abrasive material a sheet from which the containers are formed.

In still further modifications of my invention, each individual cleaner may be formed from a single sheet and furnished with twocleansing points as heretofore connecte'd to this sheet by lines of cleavage which 'form one of the two points and if desired a portion of the sides as previously described" so that it'll: held between v the two layers making up each individual cleaner and extends slightly beyond one of the ends thereof.

In an alternative form of my invention, I may place the abrasive material upon two flaps of a container which foldinside.

- arrangement being that no abrasive material is accessible when the container is closed.

Included within the objects of my invention is a simple, compact and inex pensive toilet device such as anail cleaner which pocket, preferably formed as by cutsheet from which a conting and folding from a cotton or other similar tainer is made, wherein material useful'for nail cleaning or other per- -be carried or alternatively sonal purposes may or in addition a container, such as a collapsible tube, or a series. of individual capsules, for any appropriate toilet or lacquer, handlotion, an antiseptic, or the like. Individual detachable .members, herein generally called nail cleaners, may also be used as applicators for the contents of the containers, with the advantage of this container opened for of 1a single'cleaner of a personal requisite such as or without cotton, and ifcapsules are used, a pointed end may be employed to pierce each capsule, which after one use, is discarded. If I use a tube, I may prefer so as to form the tube. pocket, container and group of detachable cleaners that a single fastener is all that is required to hold both the tube and the cleaners in assembled relation to the container. This phase may be applied to any collapit is desired permanently to atlike. that this phase of my slble tube which tach to a sheet orthe It will be understood in vention is not limited to an article for the care of the nails. since such individual tubes or capsules may be mounted upon the use of soft paper or a container as described herein without detachable members such as. the cleanersherein described. Alternatively detachable narrow and elongated members formed substantially as mounted with individual containers and used as applicators, the ends being pointed only'if cap-- sules, which must be pierced, are employed.

In a group of preferred modifications of this invention, I may form a container from a single folded that a pocket is provided in addition to latching and cuticle tabs and, if desired, place for the positioning of an abrasive. In a preferred modification of this modification, I may form from a group of detachable cleaners as tainer.

Alternatively to the above forms of this invention, I may provide a permanent container well as a conherein set out may be single sheet a l tively long lines of cleavage -'-neighborins cleaners.

It will be understood that these lines of cleavage are preferably substantially parallel and preferably relatively closely spaced. It will also be understood that these lines of cleavage do not completely sever the sheet of material into which they are placed. As'will be clear from. the re-' mainder of this of the drawings,

specification and an inspection these lines support the cleaner it as alter use. This support along a substantial length, it will be observed,

A cover member 22 for the container is relatively distant from body member H. "These protuberances are so shaped and-disposed as to be available when the container is open as means for pushing downthe cuticle about a nail of the. a

user. A wider but shorter latching tab fli -preferably disposed midway between the two'cuticle tabs.

While I much prefer to: form the cuticletab or tabs so that they serve also as latching in- Figure 27-shows a. modification of theform of I 1 eigures sto 19. a group of cleaners being formed integrally with a containerin a single sheet. I 1 Figures. and 29, sheet two, illustrate a per- .15; nianent container made of plastic. metal or'other ffrelativelg.imper shablematerial equip ed w th separable nail viously. shown cleaners of the general type preas attached to the respective impermanent containers. Figure 29 is a section I J take'non the line 29-28 of Figure 28.

Figures 30 and Si show' a modiiicationin which each cleaner is formed with two'points as previ'ously illustrated and-integral with a support but-separable'therefrom along lines of cleavage which'include the outline of one of said points. InFig'ure 30, these lines of cleavage also pass along a substantial portion of each side of eac cleaner whereby each cleaner before removal is JuPl orted by such portions. of these sides as well as by the points but in. Figure 31 each cleaner is supported by onb one, point.

Ail-clearly shown in Figure 1, a container for cleaners is cut and folded from a single sheet.

the claims, the word "perforation" or the like is 'to be understood as including scoring-or the like. The scoring or perforation may extend further than is shown in the drawings or ifdesired may be shorter, but I much preferto have each cleaner reasonably solidly attached to its neighbar. or in-the case of the innermost cleaner to cleaners it each with two pointed ends are preferably dipp d in an antiseptic 211 between the cuts; In

'from-one sheet, slightly scored as all of the foregoing members may be folded'back strurnentalities,' they may be formedz'upon. any I f exterlor'portlon of the'sheet-froin which the con-- be understoodthat flaps l2 all formed wnsothattainer is made.

It will of course and it, cover 23 and member 21 upon b dy section -l l; for convenience the lines upon which such members as 22 and' 21 may be folded are called hinge-lines. In thecutting and forming operation tabs 24 are bent/slightly up wardly and tab 25 slightly downwardly, as the cleaner is viewed as positioned'in Figure 2.

Figure 2 illustrates this form'of my invention a in closed position. The latching tab 25 is pushed underneath th latching andabrasive carrying member 'or tab placed upon the outside. It will'of course beiun derstood that the nail cleaners I are completely covered when the container is closed. It-will thus It consists essentially of a .body member I l with I an upper'flap i2 and a lower. flap I3. Attached to body member ll as by a staple H passed iii ' be seen that tabs 24 and 21 in addition to their function as toilet accessories also serve as latches and tab 21 functions as a combined latch and abrasiveecarryingmember.

If desired in place of the abrasive material 28 a polishing material such for example as chamois may be used, or both may be used. In fact. in

all forms "of my invention, a polishing agent can.

be substituted for the abrasive-or preferablyused as supplemental.

In the form-of the invention shown in Figure 4, a'body member 3i supports cleaners 22 pointed at each end as before and detachably joinedto each other while the innermost one is alsodeytach'ably Joined to a subsidiary support 22 formed from the same sheet as the'cleaners.

Lines of cleavage are formed as previously de scribed. "A supporting-and latching tab 34 is turned up from body-member. 2| oi the sheet out of which the container is formed. The cleaners are placed in position, the subsidiary support b ing pas underneath tab "and fastened therewithstand'the strain of the thus gives the cleaner maximum support before detachment.-.

formed with two tabs or protuberances 2! upon its edge 21, while the cuticle tabs 24 are iary support i of Figure tener 35 which holds the support 34 in place or tab 34 omitted andsupport 33 stapled'directly into place. Alternatively, and described in connection with Figure 27, the cleaners may be formed from the single sheet'out of which the container is made.

Foldaable inwardly and above and below the body member 31 andtoward it and-preferably formed integrally therewith are the inner portions of which are supplied with an abrasive or polishing material 38 and 40 respectively or preferably one with an abrasive and one with a polishing surface such aschamois. A cover member 42 extends from the ii and is foldable inwardly. in relation thereto.

Thereupon cotton 58 may be applied toone or botheends of the device. An adhesive is applied and the units 50 are pressed together so that the finishedstructure of Figure 5 results. Each unit 50, therefore, is folded upon itself so that it becomes a single cleaner 51 with cotton-between two exterior surfaces made as of cardboard. It will be understood of course similar substance need not be used, the cleaners being complete and effective without it. Preferably after use, each cleaner is detached along its line of cleavage formed by the above described cuts and perforations or scorings and thrown away.

It will 'of. course that-such substances and the antiseptic'x'nayjibe omitted if desired. As pre- Toopen I'viously described in connection with other-embodiments of invention, each cleaner "is separable fr'omiits neighbor by a cut 84 and a scorad-which together form a line of cleavage; Theinnerinost' cleaneris' similarl: mounted upon atab 81 which corresponds to tilt tab l5 of Figure 1 ,I! 1 case thisform oi my inyention is to be"usedji ndependently oi a con V shown this tabshould'bomitted. In'the formsf'of invention shown in Figure 1, 2, 3; and 4,1 may form the pointed ends witl inclinations. in bothdirections instead of in on only. It will readilyfbe understood thatI ma omit the use of cotton or of a' tissue but on th other hand I may apply cotton or a tissue t both sides of these cleaners or alternatively I ma use cotton on one side and the tissue on th other. Abrasive may be applied upon any suii aable part of the container, instead of as show: If desired, advertising matter may be place upon the cleaners themselves or upon the insic or outside of the device, as for one example onl upon either or b'othsides of the cover member 1 of the form of the invention shown in Figure Inthe form of my invention shown in Figuri 15 to 19 both inclusive (sheet three) and wi1 modifications in Figures 20 to 25 both inclusiv I prefer to form the'container of a single she 9| consisting of a front cover portion 82 foldal:

.in relation to a back cover portion 94 along hin lines 93. The edge of the front cover 92 gene width, or thegroup or cleaners maybe attached manner previously described is pressed together.

Figure 8 "hows a cleaner 60', such as cleaners ally pa allel to these linesof fold 93 is form into "one or more tabs 95, preferably with t external surfacesrounded, which may be us forpushing the cuticle awa from the nail, and latching tab'SG.

A portion of this single sheet 9| relatively 1 mote from the front cover portion is folded up lines 8'! to form a supporting tab having a fiwlng .98 and a secnd wing 99 foldable in relati tosthe first wing along a hinge-line I00, the to lug operation being' carriedout so'that the s 0nd wing is movedtoward the back cover pl tion 94 andback upon and under first wing 98 This second wing serves as a support foi group I02 of individual cleaners I03 separa by lines of cleavage I04 and attached as b:

staple I to the second wing 99. According to this arrangement, it will be readily seen that the sheet or group of cleaners I 32 may readily be folded back against the back cover 34 and thereafter covered by the front cover 92. Latching tab 98 is thereupon placed under the first wing 98 passing between it and the sheet I02 of cleaners, while cuticle tabs 85 pass to the outside of this wing. The above construction, as will readily be understood, forms a simple, efilcient and very inexpensive device.

Lines of cleavage I04, upon which each cleaner I33 may be torn from its adjacent cleaner, are

" generally parallel and always closely spaced. It

is to be understood, however, that these lines of cleavage particularly toward the outer edges of the cleaners are not strictly parallel. Hence in the sub-joined claims I have used the word "paralll in a somewhat broad sense to include lines which are only approximately parallel. Also for convenience, in theclaims I speak of these lines as running straight across the sheet, although they generally rather than literally do so, and I also refer to imaginary lines as crossing these lines at right angles, although such angles in effect but not literally are right.

- Instead of applying cotton to one or both points of each detachable cleaner as previously described, in thisformof my'invntion I construct asmall' pocket generall indicated as I III which may be used for cotton or the like, or, as later described, for containers oi'a personal toilet requisite, such as'lacquer'for the nails, a hand tion,- antisepticlbr the like. To form this pocket,

I may make small cuts III in'the edges of the unitary'container sheet SI and fold back two" small tabs III. I choose the location of this pocket at a'poin'tso placed that the opposite side is covered by a closely adjacent tab or other portion of the folded container sheet which thereby forms a cover for the pocket. In the form ofthis' invention shown in Figures to 19,

a both inclusive, '1 form this pocket from the second wing'39 of the supporting tab for the cleaners. This construction permits the first wing of this tab to act as a covermember enclosing a toiletrequisite shown as cotton H2 or the'like, which is held in place at each end of this pocket by the small tabs III. As the device is opened and then'folded backwardly to a position more extreme than that shown in Figure 16, the cotton is readily accessible. The -user may pluck out a small portion and place it under the finger nail and'then use one of the nail cleaners to push the cotton along the inner surface of the nail thereby performing the cleansing operation by contact between the soft cotton and the sensitive surface of the nail. It will of course be understood that this pocket may be employed to hol any small toilet accessory other than cotton.

- the variation shown in Figure 20, I may place-this pocket at the top ofback cover member 84';" I may turn up two small flaps I'I3,-'each cut from the topmost portion of the back cover member to form a pocket II'I containing cotton or the lIke-'II8. Under this arrangement the ctton is somewhat more accessible but is not quite so well protected. The remainder of this container may be formed as previously described for Figure 16.

as a nail lacquer. This tube in Figure 21 is shown as placed in a pocket I I 3' corresponding to the pocket IIII previously described. In this form of the invention the user pulls back the sheet composing the group of nail cleaners, detaches the container of lacquer, removes a stopper I20, which may be supplied with a brush if desired, and applies the lacquer to the nails, or uses whatever toilet requisite may be supplied.

In Figures 23, 24, and 25 I show variations of this form of the invention in which a tube I24 containing a cosmetic such as lacquer is especially constructed. It is provided with a body portion I25, a screw cap I26, and a flat fastening portion I2! which is formed by pressing the two sides I28 and I29 of the tube so firmly together that the lacquer cannot penetrate therebetween thereby forming a fastening flange for the tube. Consequently a single fastener I30 such as a staple may be applied directly throughtab III and the fastening'flange I 21 of the tube thereby attaching this container to the package and fastening down this tab III with a sin'gleapplication of one fastener. Since no lacquer can penetrate this portion of the tube, there is no danger of leakage and the'cost of assembly is reduced.

' In Figure 25 a slightly enlarged fragment of a modification 'of this portion of m invention is shown. A tube I33 with a stopper I34 is provided with a side fastening flange I35, this flange being nothing more than the two sides of the tube tightly pressed together so that the contents of' the tube cannot penetrate between them. A fastener I05, such as I85, maybe used to fasten both a sheet I38 of cleaners and this tube to a supporting body 'such' as'the second wing 38', such as wing 83 previously described, of a from the support and, afters portion of the contents have been pressed out, bent back again.

In Figure 26 I show a form of container similar to those shown in Figures 18 to 25 both inelusive, but containing-two pockets I38 and I38 formed respectively by folding inwardly tabs I 40 and MI respectively cut from a wing I 42 of a tab also containing wing I43 formed from a sheet I44. Wings I42 and I43 correspond to wings 38' 'sheet 9| of Figure 16.- Wings I42 and I43 may be folded together upon line I" and in relation to back cover I48 upon lines I43. Front cover I H is foldable upon lines I52 against back cover I48, and also against a sheet of cleaners, not shown, which are to be attached to the'side of wing I42 opposite to that shown in Figure 26.

It will be noted that pocket I38 is placed in substantially the same position as pocket II'I shown in Figure 20, while pocket I39 occupies the position of pocket III] of Figure 19. Pocket I33 may be omitted.

Each one of the capsules I48 may be filled with a liquid or paste for personal use such as a cosmetic or other form of pharmaceutical preparation for application to or aboutthe nails or to some other part of the human body. Each .may be lightly fastened into place by an adhesive or they may be loosely placed in the pocket since it is covered when not in use and considerable tension is" applied by tabs I and wing I43 against which it is folded. Theuser detaches or removes a single capsule and pierces it by the use of a point upon one of the nail. cleaners, thereupon. If the preparation within the capsule is mention is in no way I able nail cleaners are out number without the prime.

' designated as cleaners in fact may serve excel lently not only as a-piercing instrumentality for each capsule but also as an applicator for a capsule, either independently or with cotton.

It willbe readily understood that such capsules may be fastened to any'appropriate portion of any of the othercontainers which I have described herein for use as above. As previously stated, it will be clear that this phase of my inlimited to the nails since members constructed substantially as described for cleaners as above may be used as applicators, with or without points. A flat surface of said applicator may be used directly to apply the com tents of a capsule, or such surface may be emforms of the invention may be constructed. A sheet ISI may comprise a central body portion I92, supporting tab I93,'su'ch as those previously described for attachment to any type of container previously described, and a series of individual cleaners I94 each having a free or exterior point I95 and a separable or interior point I96. Each of these cleaners is separable from the unitary sheet along lines of cleavage I81 which include the interior. pointof each cleaner. That is tO say, only one end of each cleaner is formed completely free of the single sheet from which all are made and for the inner itis necessary for the user to detach each cleaner from the remainder thereof. a

Figure 31 shows a slightly different form in which a unitary sheet 2M is formed into a supportingtab 202 and individual cleaners 203 each ployed to support a bit ofcotton which may a carry the substance to'be applied.

Fi ure 27 illustrates a simplification of the general form of the invention shownin Figure 16 and related figures. Both container-and detachfroma single sheet I51 folded back upon itself and formed into detachable nail cleaners I58 bylines of cleavage I58. Two cuts I" permit the introduction of tabs 95' upon the closingof the container while tab '8',

' when the container is closed, remains' upon the the single sheet which is formed into cleaners. Thus it will be seen that I may construct the entire device by the use of a single sheet. An abrasive 28' may be applied to the lower fold of the device. .Parts designated by anumeral followedby a prime character are'similar to those of Figure 16 and the likedesignated by the same Figures 28 and 29 (sheet I1I to hold the cover locked. One or more tabs I11 may be formed as before both to assist in the locking operation and to push down cuticle from about the nails.

a f A single unitary sheet of nail cleaners provided in accordance with any of the above described forms of this invention may be slipped within the pocket I13. Each of these units comprises a series of individual cleaners I18 each having one or more points I18 and being separable from an adjacent cleaner (or a supporting portion I80 in the case of the last cleaner) along parallel closely spaced lines of cleavage ISI. Positioned upon the supporting tab I "is a small sheet of abrasive I82 slightly larger then the opening I14 and so disposed that when a unitary sheet of .cleaners is positioned within its case or carrier the user may employ the abrasive through this opening without the removal of the unit from the carrier.- As all of the cleaners of one group or sheet are used, another is of course substituted.

Figures 30 and 331 (sheet two) show modifications according to which unitary sheets of cleanera for use with any of the previously described outside portion of the lower part of the fold in.

two) 'show a more permanent and more expensive toilet device. A

permanent casing is provided which consists ofa cover portion I12, and a sup- I a pocket or a woman's having a free or exterior paint! and a separable or interior point 205 joined to the supporting tab 202 along lines of cleavage 208 outlining this point, only the remainder of each cleaner being free.

From the foregoing description it will be clear that I have supplied a device which is so small and compact that it may be readily slipped into handbag. Each cleaner or applicator can and should be destroyed after use, as is readily possible with conventional toilet facilities. It will also be understood that this toilet accessory many of its several forms is extremely simple and inexpensive to manufacture.

It will be seen that this invention provides a simple, inexpensive, compact and efllcient toilet plane double-pointed nail cleaners made from sheet'material, each relatively thin and much longer than wide andeach detachably joined to another by parallel closely spaced lines of cleav age only partially severing said sheet along a substantial portion of a relatively long dimension thereof and extending to each of the edges oi the sheet, each pair of said lines or cleavageat each of said edges Joining complete cuts which,

converge to form a. point thereby producing s series of elongated parallel double-pointed nail cleaners each supportedalong one of its long sides by an adjacent nail cleaner, the surfac of said points being relatively smooth, non-toxic and non-irritating and adapted forapplication to a human nail, such lines of cleavage making possible the use of each end of each cleaner before its detachmeiit from a neighboring cleaner while it is still stre gthenedand supported thereby and its ready detachment and disposal after such use. 2.
