Wilhela (Irishman, 55 Earl: Ave, New Yorir, NE. Filed Jan. 24, 1963, Ser. No. 253,705 1 Cla m. (ill. Tel-22S} The present invention relates to a cushion type mop with disposable cover and it consists in the combinations, constructions and arrangements of parts hereinafter described and claimed.
Generally there is provided a mop structure which co prises a cushion filled with shredded polyethylene, polyurethane, foam rubber or combinations thereof. The cushion is provided with a unique pocket structure on its upper side for the removable reception therein of a base for a mop handle. The device is completed by a removably mounted cover formed of impregnated nonwoven fabric. The device is such that the cushion may be laundered from time to time while the cover may be entirely disposed of and replaced with a new one whenever it becomes necessary.
It is accordingly an object of the invention to provide a device of the character set forth which is simple in construction, inexpensive to manufacture and yet effective and efficient in use.
Another object of the invention is to provide, in a device of the character set forth, a novel cushion body forming a part of the invention.
Another object of the invention is to provide, in a device of the character set forth, a novel handle base-receiving pocket in a cushion forming a part of the invention.
Still another object of the invention is to provide, in a device of the character set forth, a novel disposable cover formed of non-Woven fabric, which cover forms a part of the invention.
Still another object of the invention is to provide, in a device of the character set forth, a novel filler material for a cushion forming a part of the invention.
Other and further objects of the invention will become apparent from a reading of the following specification taken in conjunction with the drawing, in which:
FIGURE 1 is a perspective view of an embodiment of the invention,
FIGURE 2 is an exploded perspective view, somewha enlarged, of the device illustrated in FIGURE 1.
FIGURE 3 is a plan view of the device shown in FIG- URES 1 and 2 but with the cover removed therefrom,
FIGURE 4 is a perspective View of the pillow forming part of the invention, the frame of'a mop holder being assembled thereto being shown in dotted lines, and
FIGURE 5 is a sectional view taken along line 5-5 of FIGURE 2.
Referring more particularly to the drawing, there is shown therein a cushion type mop with disposable cover comprising a pillow having afiixed to the upper face thereof as by stitching 11 a pocket structure generally indicated at 12. The pillow consists of an envelope 10a and a filler 10b of shredded yieldable material.
Thepocket structure 12 consists of a flap 13 covering approximately one-half of the pocket area and open at its inner end and provided at its inner edge with an elastic edging material indicated at 14. The pocket structure 12 is completed by a pair of overlapping substantially triangular members 15 and 16 secured as by stitching at their outer edges to the pocket structure and provided at their inner open ends with elastic edging material, as indicated at 1'7 and 118, respectively. It will be noted that the members 15 and 16 are in overlapping arrangement as shown in FTGURE 3 and that portions of the members 15 and likewise overlap corner portions of the member 13.
The pocket structure 12 is adapted to removably receive therein a conventional base member 19 of a mop handle 2d, the base member 19 and mop handle 20 being conventional in character.
The device is completed by a cover 21 formed of an impregnated non-woven fabric and which is provided with an opening 22 in its upper side which opening extends centrally and longitudinally of the top side of the cover 21 and which is bound with an elastic edging material as indicated at 23.
In operation, it will be apparent that the base member 19 may be inserted beneath the pocket member 13 and thereafter beneath the pocket members 15 and 16, the elastic edgings l4, l7 and 18 acting to securely hold the same therein wherein the pillow or cushion 143 may be inserted through the opening 22 in the cover 21 so that the cover 21 may entirely envelope the same as shown in FTGURE 1 whereupon the entire device may be manipulated in customary manner by means of the handle 26 to remove dust from floors and the like.
While but one form of the invention has been shown and described herein, it will be'readily apparent to those skilled in the art that many minor modifications may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the appended claim.
What is claimed is:
A device of the character described comprising a cushion, said cushion including an envelope and a filler of yieldabie material, a handle base receiving pocket aiiixed to the upper side of said cushion, said pocket comprising a flap afiixed to the top of said cushion along its sides and one of its ends, a pair of triangular members each affixed to said cushion along two of its sides, one partially overlapping the other and both partially overlapping the flap, and the underlying portion of said cushion, said flap and triangular members all having their free edges provided with elastic edging material, said free edges cooperating to form an opening, and a cover removably mounted on said cushion, said cover being formed of non-woven fabric material, having a centrally disposed opening in the top thereof for the reception of the cushion, said last mentioned opening having an elastic edging material aflixed to the edge portions thereof.
