The liner is suitably of absorbent material and may be provided with a padded portion (3) in order to increase its capacity for liquid absorbtion. Means (4) for releasably attaching the liner to the receptacle, optionally via adhesive tabs (5) may be provided. The liner may incorporate a moisture-activated musical device and/or and an acid-activated substance which changes colour on contact with urine. <IMAGE>

Description

LINER This invention relates to a liner for a receptacle and which is particularly applicable for use in lining a baby's potty or the like.
An object of the invention is to provide a liner for a receptacle, such as a baby's potty or the like, which is simple and economical to manufacture and which is readily disposable via a main sewer.
According to the present invention, a liner for a receptacle comprises a container of degradable material adapted to be inserted in a receptacle and removed, after use, for disposal, together with its contents, via a main sewer.
Preferably, the liner is of absorbent material and may be provided with a pad-like portion, typically in at least a region which will be on the base of the receptacle, in use, in order to increase its capacity for liquid absorbtion.
In one convenient arrangement the liner is provided with means for releasably attaching it to the receptacle during use thereof. Typically, such means may be in the form of flaps or the like extending from the body of the liner and having adhesive or other means for temporary attachment to the receptacle. Such flaps are convenient in that they may be used as handles for removal purposes.
The liner may conveniently incorporate a moistureactivated musical device which plays when liquid impinges thereon, in use.
The invention will now be described, by way of example, with reference to the accompanying drawings in which: Figure 1 is a side view illustrating one form of the liner of the invention; and Figure 2 illustrates the liner of Figure 1 installed in a child's potty.
Referring to the drawings, the liner illustrated therein is in the form of a container 1 shaped generally to fit within a child's potty 2 . The liner is of a material which is degradable after disposal into a sewer via a toilet for example and is preferably absorbent. If required, the external surface of the liner may be at least partially covered by a layer of plastics material which may be a separate item or impregnated into said surface. A pad 3 of absorbent material is formed or laced at the base of the container 1 to increase the liquid absorbtion capacity of the liner. The liner is formed with flaps 4 at either side thereof which carry securing means, conveniently in the form of adhesive tape 5 , enabling the liner to be secured in position within the potty, as illustrated in Figure 2.The liner may incorporate a musical device, represented at 6 , which is typically in the form of a moisture activated micro-chip device.
In use, the liner 1 is placed in the potty in the manner indicated in Figure 2 and secured in position to the potty sides using the tapes 5 on the arms 4 Any liquid deposited in the potty by a child thereon will activate the musical device which can act as an incentive to a reluctant child and/or indicate to a parent that the liner has been used.
When it is required to dispose of the liner, it may simply be lifted out of the potty, using the arms 4 , after releasing the tapes 5 , and deposited, together with its contents, in a toilet and flushed away.
Any slight moisture remaining in the potty may easily be washed away and the potty wiped clean for re-use with a fresh liner.
The liner may take any convenient form and be made from any appropriate degradable material. Instead of the adhesive strips referred to, the arms 4 may, for example, be provided with "velcro" or similar strips to cooperate with corresponding strips provided on the potty. It would be possible to provide areas of the liner with a moisture or acid activated substance, such as litmus, which would change colour when contacted by urine. Such areas may, for example, be part of a face depicted on a liner so that the cheeks of the face change colour as a further or alternative incentive to a child.
The liner may be provided, at least at its ends, with one or more pleats extending from the top to the bottom thereof, in use, enabling the liner to be more readily adaptable to different sizes of potty.
It would be possible to embody a moisture-activated musical device in a nappy to provide an indication that a change of nappy is required.
