Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • Under 35 U.S.C. §119(e) this application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 61/451,368, filed Mar. 10, 2011, the content of which is hereby expressly incorporated herein by reference in its entirety as part of the present disclosure.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to a receptacle system for use in receiving, retaining, and/or disposing various items, and more particularly to hanging shower receptacle system for receiving, retaining, and/or disposing various items while in the shower.
  • BACKGROUND
  • When taking a shower, individuals are generally faced with disposing various types of items used for personal hygiene such as, for example, empty shampoo and soap bottles, razors, floss, old soap bars, empty toothpaste tubes, adhesive bandages, loofas, hair, and the like. In the past, when faced with disposing of such items, individuals have either been forced to exit the shower to dispose of the items in a trash can and then re-enter, or alternatively, leave such items in the shower. This practice often leads to wet floors and other disadvantages associated with exiting and re-entering a shower. Further, the practice of storing consumed items within a shower is undesirable as it is unsanitary and often an individual will forget to properly dispose of such items upon exiting the shower.
  • Accordingly, there is a need in the art for compositions that address one or more of the above-described drawbacks and/or disadvantages.
  • SUMMARY
  • In accordance with one aspect, the present disclosure provides a receptacle system for receiving, retaining, and/or disposing of various types of consumed items, e.g., items consumed in the shower. For example, in certain aspects the system comprises an outer receptacle and an inner receptacle, wherein the inner receptacle is removably received by the outer receptacle (i.e., moves relative to the outer receptacle). In additional aspects, the receptacle system comprises a housing and a receptacle disposed within the housing, wherein the receptacle is configured to be removably received by the housing. In certain embodiments, the receptacle is a disposable receptacle. In certain additional embodiments, the disposable receptacle is rigid or flexible. In general, the disposable receptacle is disposed within the housing, and is a container having an opening at one end for receiving and/or retaining consumed items.
  • The housing may be of any desired shape or size, and preferably, comprises a grid or cage—like design so that water may pass freely therethrough. The housing may be formed of any desired material, and may be rigid or flexible. In certain embodiments, the housing will generally include a mounting member or mounting means, e.g., for hanging from a shower head or other similar structure within the shower.
  • The receptacle, e.g., disposable receptacle, can be of any suitable size and shape but will generally be designed and/or configured to fit within the housing. The receptacle may be formed of any desired material and may be a rigid or flexible, perforated structure, which acts to retain larger items while allowing water to pass therethrough. In certain embodiments, the receptacle, e.g., disposable receptacle, is retained within the housing via one or more retention members. In one embodiment, the receptacle is retained within the housing via combination of retention members on the housing and loop members on the receptacle. A closing member or closing means may also be provided on the receptacle so that it may be reversibly opened and closed, and disposed of after showering. In one embodiment, the closing member or closing means comprises a cinch member so that it may be tightly closed and disposed of after showering.
  • The preceding general areas of utility are given by way of example only and are not intended to be limiting on the scope of the present disclosure and appended claims.

  • In FIG. 1, an exemplary system as described herein is provided and indicated generally by the reference numeral 10. In the illustrated embodiment, the system 10 is a receptacle system, e.g., a hanging shower receptable system. In this example, the hanging shower receptacle system 10 includes a housing 20, which may be removably attached to a structure within a shower such as the shower head, and configured to removably receive therein at least one receptacle 40, e.g., a disposable or consumable receptacle, for disposing of various toiletries and other disposable items utilized within a shower. It is noted that while the drawings illustrate a housing for removably receiving a single receptacle 40, the invention is not so limited. It is expressly contemplated that in certain embodiments, the housing 20 may be configured to removably receive one or more receptacles 40, e.g., 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or more receptacles 40. In any embodiment described herein, the receptacle(s) 40 can be, independently from any other, rigid or flexible and/or disposable or reusable.
  • As shown in FIG. 1, the receptacle system may comprise a housing 20 which is substantially rectangular and includes an upper end 21, a lower end 22, a front end 23, a rear end 24, a first side 25 and a second side 26. The upper end 21 defines a large opening 28 through which the receptacle 40, e.g., a rigid or flexible and/or disposable or reusable receptacle, may be inserted into the housing 20 and through which disposables may be inserted into the receptacle 40, e.g., a disposable or consumable receptacle, when in place. The lower end 22, front end 23, rear end 24, first side 25 and second side 26 are each constructed to allow water to pass freely therethrough, such as, for example, the cage design shown in the figures. In certain embodiments, the receptacle 40, e.g., a disposable or consumable receptacle, is a container having an opening at one end for receiving and/or retaining consumed items.
  • It will also be appreciated that neither the housing 20 nor the receptacle 40 are limited to a rectangular shape, but may be made in any of numerous shapes and sizes. For example, in any of the aspects or embodiments described herein, the housing may be circular, semi-circular, trapezoidal, bowl shaped, etc. In one embodiment, a bowl shaped housing 20 may be utilized which includes curved sides. In any of the embodiments described herein, the housing 20 may be formed of a rigid or flexible material. As will be recognized by those of ordinary skill in the pertinent art based on the teachings herein, the housing may be constructed in any manner wherein water may freely flow therethrough (e.g., grid or cage-like design) and a receptacle 40, e.g., a disposable receptacle, may be retained therein. For example, in one embodiment described herein, the housing 20 is rectangular having a grid or cage-like design so that water may pass freely therethrough.
  • In any of the embodiments described herein, the housing 20 and/or the receptacle 40 are configured or designed to retain larger items while allowing water to pass therethrough, e.g., grid, cage-like, mesh, woven fiber, perforations, holes, pores or the like. In certain embodiments, the receptacle 40 is generally formed of a flexible, perforated structure, which acts to retain larger items while allowing water to pass therethrough. In an additional embodiment, the receptacle 40 comprises a plastic bag having a design so that water may pass freely therethrough (e.g., grid, cage-like, mesh, woven fiber, perforations, holes, pores or the like). In certain additional embodiments, the receptacle 40 is formed in substantially the same shape and/or size as the housing 20.
  • The housing will generally include a mounting member or mounting means for hanging the receptacle system, e.g., from a shower head or other similar structure within a shower. In any of the aspects or embodiments described herein, the mounting member or mounting means may include at least one of, e.g., a hook, a wire loop, an elastomeric vacuum pad or suction cup, a fastener, an adhesive or tape, etc., or any combination thereof. Thus, in certain embodiments, the housing 20 further includes one or more mounting members 30 for removably securing the housing 20 to a structure within the shower such as a shower head or ledge. As shown in FIG. 2, the mounting member may be an inverted U-shaped bracket having a narrow upper portion and a broader lower portion. Such a bracket will generally extend from the upper end 21 of the housing 20 adjacent its rear end 24. Alternatively, the mounting member may comprise a plurality of hooks, as shown in FIG. 3, for suspending the housing 20 from a ledge or wall within a shower. As may be recognized by those of ordinary skill in the pertinent art based on the teachings herein, the mounting member may comprise various other designs and configurations for removably attaching the hanging shower receptacle to any structure within a shower or defining the boundaries of the shower. For example, while the figures illustrate the usage of a pair of mounting members 30, it is appreciated that any number of mounting members 30 may be utilized without affecting the overall operation of the present invention. Further, the positioning of the mounting members 30 may vary for different uses.
  • In an additional aspect, the housing 20 and the receptacle 40 are configured to retain the receptacle 40 within the housing 20. For example, in certain embodiments the housing 20 includes one or more retention members 32 for removably securing the receptacle 40 within the housing 20. As shown in FIGS. 1-3, the retention members 32 are pegs extending from the four corners of the upper end 21 of the housing 20. The retention members 32 are arranged to extend through corresponding loop members 50 of the receptacle 40 as shown in the figures for removably securing the receptacle 40 within the housing 20. As may be recognized by those skilled in the pertinent art based on the teaching herein, the retention member may take any of number different configurations and may be arranged in many of numerous different ways so long as the receptacle may be removably secured within the housing.
  • As shown in FIG. 1, the receptacle 40 includes an upper end 41, a lower end 42, a front end 43, a rear end 44, a first side 45 and a second side 46, and defines a substantially rectangular shape. The upper end 41 includes a large opening 48 through which disposable items may be placed into the receptacle 40. The lower end 42, front end 43, rear end 44, first side 45 and second side 46 are configured or constructed to allow water to pass freely therethrough. For example, the receptacle 40 may be perforated. However, as may be recognized by those skilled in the pertinent art based on the teachings herein, the receptacle may be constructed in any manner wherein water may freely flow therethrough, while retaining the consumed toiletries and other disposable items therein. Further, it will be appreciated that the housing should not be limited to a rectangular shape, but may be made in any of numerous shapes and sizes.
  • The receptacle 40 also includes one or more loop members 50 for use in removably securing the receptacle 40 within the housing 20. As shown in FIG. 1, the loop members 50 will generally be comprised of loops which extend outwardly from the outer edges of the upper end 41 of the receptacle 40.
