UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

JULIUS E. HEIMERL AND JOHN H. POMMER, OF MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, ASSIGNORS TO STA-HOT LUNCH BOX COMPANY, OF MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN.

POLISHING MI'ITEN.

Application filed January 18, 1923. Serial No. 612,914.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, JULIUS E. HEIMERL and JOHN H. POMMER, both citizens of the United States, and residents of Milwaukee, 6 in the county of Milwaukee and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Polishing Mittens; and we do hereby declare that the followm is a, full, clear, and exact descri tion thereo This invention relates to a po ishing device and scouring device and is particularly directed to a polishing mitten or pad.

The use of steel wool for polishing and cleaning purposes has serious drawbacks 1a which prevent its use in a number of places where otherwise it would be employed. For example, the steel wool consists of relatively fine and somewhat brittle, filamentary threads of metal. These are usually held directly in the operators hand in a sort of a bundle and rubbed against the surface to be polished. Obviously, the operators hand is frequently damaged and the strands break into small particles, which clog up a sink as for instance, or penetrate the operators hand.

This invention is to overcome the above noted defects and objects of such invention are therefore to provide a polishing device which employs steel wool or other material of a similar nature, freed from the noted defects, to provide a polishing device which may be worn upon or held by the hand of the operator in a manner to protect such operators hand, without however, in any way detractin from the etficiency of the device, to provi e a polishing or scouring device which will retain the broken portions of the strands for further utilization and prevent them from falling in the sink or into undesirable places.

Further objects are to provide a hand mitten or pad which may be constructed in an extremel cheap and simple manner, which is provi ed with a felted pad composed of fibrous material with the steel wool intermingled therewith, which may be worn upon the operators handwithout damage thereto, which will not turn upon the operators hand and move out of position, and which gives both the scraping and polishing action of the steel wool and also that of the fibrous material.

An embodiment of the invention is shown in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a view from the palm side of the olishing mitten.

Flgure 2 is a corresponding view from the rear side thereof.

Fi ure 3 is an enlarged transverse sectiona view on the line 3-3 of Figure 1.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, it will be seen that the polishing mitten consists of an open-end sack which may be formed of canvas for instance, or other suitable protecting flexible material. It may comprise a rear portion 1 and a palm ortion2which, if desired, may be integral a ong one edge and may be stitched together as indicated at 3 along the other edge. If desired, the end portions may be turned in as indicated at 4; to provide a finishin ed e and a tab consisting of a loo of exib e material as indicated at 5 ma e stitched to such inturned edge to provi e an eyelet, by means of which the mitten may be hung up.

The palm side of the mitten is provided with a matted or felted pad 6 composed of suitable fibrous material, with steel wool felted or matted therein, as may be clearly seen from Figures 1 and 3 This fibrous material may be of cotton, wool or in fact, any suitable material which will cooperate with the steel WOOl to form a matted' or felted structure and which will retain the steel wool in place when the portions thereof become broken into relatively small members. In actual practice it has been found that cotton batting cooperates well with steel wool to secure the above noted results.

The pad 6 is quilted or stitched to the palm ortion of the mitten by means of a plurality of lines of stitching such as indicated at 7 for instance. A line of stitching 8 may be run longitudinally of the mitten part way up from the tip thereof, so as to partially divide the mitten into two compartments, each of which is adapted to receive certain of the fingers of the o rator, with the line of stitching positioned etween adjacent fingers. This construction will prevent the mitten from turning 11 on the operators hand, into an undesirab e position.

It is to be particularly noted that both 10 the polishing action of the steel wool and that of the fibrous material occur simultaneously, when the mitten is in use and a high polish is quickly secured-the steel wool will remove any scale or crust upon the article and will aid in polishing, While the fibrous material will cooperate and give a high olish to the article.

It Wiil thus be seen that a polishing mitten has been provided which employs steel wool in a novel and efi'ective manner without danger to the o erator and without danger of iaeaaee therefore to be limited only as set forth in the appended claims.

We claim: J Y

1. A polishing mitten comprising a pocket for the reception of the hand and having front and rear walls, and a matted pad composed of intermingled steel wool and fibrous material.

2. A polishing pad comprising a, matted pad of intermingled strands of abrasive material and fibrous material.

In testimony that we claim the foregoing we have hereunto set our hands at Milwaukee, in the county of Milwaukee and State of Wisconsin,

JlUlLl US lE. HEIMERL. JOHN H. lPUMMlElt.
