Abstract

A flexible pouch is for enclosing the items is disclosed. The pouch has a sidewall, and a hoop connected to the pouch configured to receive a toilet paper spindle from which the pouch hangs. A seam is formed in the side wall and is sized for dispensing the items there through.

Description

  • Disclosed and described is a hanging apparatus for dispensing items. Specifically, an apparatus to be hung from a toilet paper spindle configured for dispensing items is disclosed and described.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • The typical bathroom is provided with a toilet-tissue roll fixture which takes the form of a holder having a pair of projecting posts or arms having bearing sockets therein to receive the journal ends of a spring-biased retractable spindle on which the roll is supported.
  • Various methods have been attempted to provide supplemental materials for use in the bathroom in addition to the usual toilet paper. For example, some have determined that dry toilet-tissue is inadequate for carrying out a thorough cleansing function, and have provided a moistened-tissue dispenser to make available a moistened tissue at the conclusion of the usual toilet ritual.
  • As another example, because toilet paper is dry and relatively harsh, mothers of babies have switched to moistened towelettes in the form of absorbent paper saturated with an antiseptic solution. These towelettes are commercially available in so-called WET WIPES dispensers in the form of a cylindrical can having a roll of moistened tissue which is transversely perforated along the length of the tissue web to create a succession of individual tissues which are withdrawn, one at a time, through an orifice in a removable cover, the individual tissues being torn off adjacent the orifice. WET WIPES are also commonly provided in stackable form in a box or other waterproof container having a seam through which individual tissues are dispensed.
  • Though the typical toilet room or bathroom has installed on a wall a toilet-tissue roll fixture, there is often no convenient shelf space available for a dispenser so that supplemental bathroom materials such as WET WIPES, feminine hygiene items (e.g. tampons), contraceptives, or other dispensable items are readily accessible to the user.
  • With a view to solving this problem, the patents to Boone provide various means to this end. Thus U.S. Pat. No. 4,004,687 to Boone, a cylindrical can-type dispenser for moistened tissues is embraced by a ring that merges with a hook that hitches onto one of the projecting posts of a conventional toilet-tissue roll fixture, thereby positioning the dispenser adjacent one end of the toilet-tissue roll.
  • In U.S. Pat. No. 4,235,333 to Boone, the bathroom fixture for the toilet-tissue roll is provided with an extension plate on which a box of moistened tissues is bracketed. A similar arrangement is shown in U.S. Pat. No. 4,106,617 to Boone. The practical objection to these arrangements is that it requires a modification of the existing toilet-tissue roll holder, for one cannot mount the moistened tissue box on a standard holder.
  • In U.S. Pat. No. 4,106,616 to Boone, in order to support a moistened tissue dispenser in a box or a cylindrical can form from a conventional toilet-tissue roll holder, a rigid arm is provided having a concave notch at its upper end for hitching the arm onto one end of the spindle of the holder. The other end of the rigid arm is bifurcated to provide a support for the box or can. The practical objection to this arrangement as well as to that shown in U.S. Pat. No. 4,004,687 to Boon is that because the attachment is to one post of the holder or to one end of the spindle, it is unstable and does not afford adequate support for the moistened tissue dispenser.
  • None of the above patents describes a suitable system that allows flexibility in a supplemental item dispenser in the bathroom, for storing many various types of items. Further, none of the above patents, taken either singularly or in combination, is seen to describe the instant invention as claimed. Thus a supplemental item dispenser for the bathroom solving the aforementioned problems is desired.
