H. MAGIT CLEANING PAD Nov. 7, 1950 Filed Jan. 17, 1949 H4eey MAG/7;

INVENTOR. ATTORNEY.

Patented Nov. 7, 1950 UNITED STATES TENT OFFICE 6 Claims.

The present invention relates to pads particularly useful in removing lint, dust, hair and the like from various objects, such as articles of wearing apparel.

An object of the invention is to provide a cleaning pad that can be held in the hand and used conveniently in performing various cleaning operations.

Another object of the invention is to provide a cleaning pad comprising a plurality of layers of material that can be peeled readily from one another to present additional cleaning surface in the performance of cleaning operations.

Still another object of the invention is to provide a cleaning pad composed of sheets having pressure sensitive adhesive coatings thereon, in which the sheets can be readily peeled from the pad.

Yet a further object of the invention is to provide a cleaning pad composed of sheets having adhesive coatings for removing lint, dust, hair and the like from articles to be cleaned, in which the coatings also serve to hold the sheets together in the required pad form.

Another object of the invention is to provide a cleaning pad having a band or strap for facilitating holding of the pad and for also confining a cover or case for the pad when the latter is not in use.

This invention possesses many other advantages, and has other objects which may be made more clearly apparent from a consideration of a form in which it may be embodied. This form is shown in the drawings accompanying and forming part of the present specification. It will now be described in detail, for the purpose of illustrating the general principles of the invention; but it is to be understood that such detailed description is not to be taken in a limiting sense, since the scope of the invention is best defined by the appended claim.

Referring to the drawings:

Figure 1 is a pictorial perspective representation of a cleaning pad, with its case in open position;

,Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the cleaning pad after its removal from the confining case;

Fig. 3 is an enlarged perspective View of a portion of the cleaning pad, "illustrating a manner of peeling sheets therefrom;

Fig. 4 is a longitudinal view, partly in section and partly in elevation, of a portion of the pad, with the layers spaced from one another for clarity of illustration; and

Fig. 5 is a section taken along the line 55 on Fig. 4.

The pad illustrated in the drawings includes a plurality of layers l0 superposed one upon the other, each layer comprising a sheet ll of suitable material, such as paper, having a pressure 2 I sensitive adhesive coating [2 applied to one of its faces. This coating may be a rubber base pressure sensitive adhesive, such as Permacel. The paper itself may be of any suitable kind, such as an oil treated crepe paper. The layers I0 are placed upon one another with the back of one paper sheet II engaging the pressure sensitive adhesive coating [2 of an adjacent paper sheet. As many layers as desired may be superimposed upon one another, the layers being held together by the pressure sensitive adhesive.

In order to facilitate peeling of the layers from each other, a protective strip or sheet I3 is disposed upon the side marginal portion of the adhesive coating I2 of each layer, to which it ad'- heres. This protective sheet engages the adjacent paper sheet H of the next layer, and pre-' vents the back of such paper sheet from adhering to the adhesive coating l2 therebelow. As a result, the side marginal portions of the layers are not secured to one another, enabling each layer ,Hi to be grasped readily by the fingers and peeled from the adjacent layer. The protective strip or sheet I3 at the marginal portion of the pad may be of any suitable material that will not adhere to the paper stock I l. One such material is cellophane.

The lowermost sheet of paper Ila in the pad is secured to a base sheet I4 of thicker stock, to which a strap or band I5 is attached. The base sheet has separated pressure sensitive adhesive coatings l6 for adhering the base sheet to the next adjacent sheet of paper Ila, in order to provide a space I! between the coatings IS in which the ends of the strap or band 15 may be accommodated. The strap or band I5 is secured to the base sheet [4 in any suitable manner, as by means of staples IB passing through the end portions of the band and through the base sheet itself. Further attachment of the first layer of material In forming the pad to the base sheet M may be obtained by means of a staple l9 passing through its marginal portion. That is, the staple l9 passes through the cellophane protective strip l3, the adhesive coating [2, and the paper Ha forming the layer adjacent the base sheet.

In order to protect the pressure sensitive adhesive coating of the uppermost layer, it may be covered by a sheet of cellophane 20, which adheres lightly to the pressure sensitive adhesive 12, but which does not adhere to the protective cellophane strip l3 at the side margin of the uppermost layer.

When the pad is not in use it may be contained within a cover or case 2 l, which extends between the outer portion of the strap E5 and the back of the base sheet M, and which may be disposed completely around the pad. The ends of the cover 2! are secured to one another by a suitable snap fastener 22. The cover may be made-of between the latter and the base sheet I4, which presents the pad itself on the palm sideof the fingers. the upper layer may then be peeled easily from the adjacent layer by grasping its marginal edge 20a, in view of the non-adherence'between the cellophane sheet 20 and the cellophane strip [3 thereunder, thereby exposing the pressure sensitive adhesive coating [2' on the uppermost layer. The pad may then be applied against the article to be cleaned to remove undesired substances from its surface. The pad may be pattedagainst the surface, the lint, dust, hair and the like adhe'ring to the adhesive coating [2 for removal from the object.

Ifdesiredl the particles adhering to the pressure sensitive adhesive coating i2 can be removed by wipin with a suitable cleaning solvent, thereby enabling" the coating to be re-used for additional cleaning purposes When the outermost layer is no longer usable, it may be readily peeled from the remainder of the pad merely by grasping the marginal portion mm of the used layer by the fingers and peeling this layer in the manner indicated in Fig. 3. The paper sheet Ii peels readily from the pressure sensitive adhesive [2 on the adjacent underlying layer without removing the adhesive coating from suclilayer, since the back of the paper adheres comparativel lightly to the underlying adjac'ent coating. The pad may again be used, in the manner described above, by patting or gently brushing the pressure sensitive adhesive coating f 2 over the article to be cleaned.

It is apparent that a cleaning pad has been provided which presents a large combined surface of adhesive coating for operation upon articles. The greater the number or layers in the pad, the greater is the available adhesive coating surface. The adhesive coating l2 holds the layers IU of the pad together and also serves as the medium for removing the undesired particles from the clothing or otherobject to be cleaned. The layers are easily peeled from one another, because of the nonadherence between portions of adjacent layers,

The strap l 5 not only functions as a means for holding the pad in the hand in a convenient and easily manipulated position, but it also serves to prevent inadvertent removal of 'the case or cover 2i from the pad when the latter is not in use. It is apparent that fastening the ends of the case to one another prevents endwise removal of the case from the pad, and that the side portions of the strap [5 engage the case to prevent removal of the case from the sides of the pad.
