Patented Dec. 29, 1953 CAR WASHING GLOVE WITH WATER SUPPLY MEANS Albert E. Sullins, Ottawa, Kans. Application July 11, 1950, Serial No. 173,027

1 Claim.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements and structural refinements in car washing devices, and the principal object of the invention is to provide a device of the character herein described which may be easily connected to a garden hose and applied to the hand, for simultaneously delivering a supply of water and wiping dirt from the surface being washed.

Some of the advantages of the invention reside in its simplicity of construction, in its efficient operation, in its adaptability to economical manufacture, and in its convenient discerptibility which facilitates easy replacement of parts.

With the above more important objects in view and such other objects and features as may become apparent as this specification proceeds, the invention consists essentially of the arrangement and construction of parts as illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the invention in use;

Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the invention, this being taken substantially in the plane of line 2-2 in Figure 1;

Figure 3 is an underside plan view of the top member of the invention, also showing in dotted lines the relative position of the water supply tube and fork;

Figure 4 is a transverse sectional detail, taken substantially in the plane of the line 44 in Figure 3, and;

Figure 5 is a top plan view of the bottom member of the invention.

Like characters of reference are employed to designate like parts in the specification and throughout the several views.

Referring now to the accompanying drawings in detail, the invention consists of a car washing device which is designated generally by the reference character l0 and embodies in its construction a top member l2 which is hollow and affords a pocket I 4 to receive the hand ofa user, as shown.

The top member [2 is preferably formed from flexible fabric material including a top wall l6 and a lower or bottom wall I 8, the two walls being secured together at the marginal edges thereof by suitable stitching 20. If desired, a resilient wrist receiving sleeve 22 may be provided on the top member l2 in communication with the pocket I 4 thereof, so as to prevent the entire device from slipping off the hand.

The invention also contemplates the provision of a fabric bottom member 24 which coacts with the bottom wall 18 to afford a water chamber 26, the bottom member 24 being provided at the outer surface thereof with fibres 28 for wiping the surface which is to be Washed. Moreover, the bottom member 24 is formed with a plurality of openings 30 through which water may escape from the chamber 26 and saturate the fibres 28, as will be clearly apparent.

Water is delivered into the chamber 26 through a supply tube. 32 which may be provided with a shut-off valve 34 and connected to a conventional garden hose 36, it being noted that the'tube 32 extends into the chamber 26 and is bifurcated and flattened so as to afford a hollow fork 35. The arms of this fork are secured by suitable keeper straps 40 to the underside of the lower wall l8 of the top member l2, and a number of apertures 42 are provided in the fork 38 whereby water may be discharged from the fork into the chamber 26.

Finally, it is to be noted that the marginal edge portion of the lower member 24 is turned upwardly and inwardly as at 44 and is provided with a plurality of snap fasteners 46 which are engageable with coacting snap fasteners 38 provided on the bottom wall [8 of the top member I2, whereby the top and bottom members i2, 24 respectively are separably connected together.

It is believed that the advantages and use of the invention will be clearly understood from the foregoing disclosure and accordingly, further description thereof at this point is deemed unnecessary.

While in the foregoing there has been shown and described the preferred embodiment of this invention, it is to be understood that minor changes in the details of construction and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.

Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

In a car washing glove, the combination of a hollow top member defining a hand receiving pocket and including a lower wall, fastener elements provided at the underside of said lower wall adjacent marginal edges thereof, a fabric bottom member disposed under said top member and having upturned and inturned marginal edge portions, wiping fibres carried by said bottom member, coacting fastener elements pro vided on the last mentioned edge portions and separably secured to the first mentioned elements, said bottom member coacting with said lower wall to provide a water chamber having outlet openings in the bottom member, a fork-shaped water supply tube disposed in the water chamber and provided with outlet apertures, and a plurality of keeper straps secured to the underside of said lower wall and extending transversely under said tube to sustain the latter in position.
