Nov. 29, 1955 R. KRASNO LINT REMOVING DEVICE Filed May 12, 1952 INVENTOR LOUIS R. KRASNO riv ATTORNEYS l l v United States Patent LINT REMOVING DEVICE Louis R. Krasno, Bethesda, Md.

Application May 12, 1952, Serial No. 287,334

1 Claim. (Cl. 15-104) This invention appertains to means for removing lint and other dirt particles from fabrics and particularly from mens and womens garments, by the use of a tacky substance, such as adhesive tape and the like, which lint and other dirt particles will adhere to.

One of the primary objects of my invention is to provide a novel package containing removable leaves of adhesive tape or the like, which can be readily carried in the pocket of a garment or a womans purse, in which the leaves are normally protected by the package and in which the outermost leaf can be instantly exposed for its 2,724,847 Patented Nov. 29, 1955 77 of Figure 3, looking in the direction of the arrows and showing the closure flaps folded back to form the finger receiving sleeve.

Figure 8 is a longitudinal sectional view taken on the line 8-8 of Figure 2, looking in the direction of the r arrows and illustrating the formation of the individual use of removing lint and other matter clinging to a garment.

Another salient object of my invention is to provide a lint and dirt removing device embodying a package formed of flexible material containing a pad of leaves or strips of adhesive tape and embodying flaps normally functioning to close the body of the package and foldable over the back of the body of the package to provide, in conjunction with the body, a sleeve for receiving fingers of the hand of the user, whereby the package and the outermost leaf of adhesive can be efiiciently used for wiping over a garment to pick up lint, dirt and the like from the garment.

A further important object of my invention is to provide means whereby the outermost leaf of adhesive tape can be readily grasped and removed from the pad and package after its lint and dirt removing life is ended, so as to expose the next adjacent cleaning leaf to view.

A still further object of my invention is to provide an article of the above character, which can be manufactured and placed upon the market at a small cost.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the novel construction, arrangement and formation of parts as will be hereinafter more specifically described and claimed, and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which drawing,

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the improved package containing a pad of leaves of adhesive tape or the like with the package in its closed position for housing the pad.

Figure 2 is a view similar to Figure l with the closure flaps of the package open.

Figure 3 is a view similar to Figures 1 and 2, showing the flaps folded over the package back to form a finger receiving sleeve for manipulating the outermost leaf of adhesive tape over a garment.

Figure 4 is a perspective view illustrating the manner in which the package can he slipped over the fingers of a user.

Figure 5 is a perspective view similar to Figure 3, but with the pad disposed uppermost and the outermost leaf which is covered with lint and dirt being removed from the pad to expose a clean leaf to View. 7

Figure 6 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 6-6 of Figure 1 looking in the direction of the arrows and showing the package in its closed position for protecting the pad.

Figure 7 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line leaves of the pad whereby such leaves can be conveniently grasped and removed from the pad.

Referring to the drawing in detail, wherein similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the letter A generally indicates my novel article for removing lint and dirt from garments, and the same includes the novel package P containing the pad of leaves of adhesive tape T.

The package P is formed from a single piece of flexible sheet material, preferably plastic, and includes a bottom or back wall 10 having formed thereon spaced parallel right angularly extending side walls 11. The side walls in turn have formed thereon companion cover flaps 12 and 13 which are adapted to overlap when the flaps are folded one over the other. In order to hold the flaps in their closed overlapping position, one flap, say flap 12, is provided with a longitudinal slot 14, and the other flap has struck out therefrom a locking tongue 15, which is adapted to be inserted through the slot.

Received within the package P is the pad of leaves of adhesive tape T. Each leaf is of a size corresponding to the size and shape of the back or rear wall 10, and one face of each leaf is provided with the adhesive surface on which lint and dirt will adhere. The leaves are arranged in superimposed relation, and are held in their pad form by their adhesive surface, and after the use of the uppermost leaf, as Will later appear, the same can be stripped from the pad. To facilitate the stripping of one leaf from the other, each leaf has secured thereto a binding or reinforcing strip 16 at one edge thereof and these reinforcing strips space the leaves one from the other at one end of the pad and form a finger grip to permit the easy handling of a leaf so that the same can be readily grasped and removed from the pad.

By referring to Figure 1, it can be seen that when the flaps 12 and 13 are folded over the pad and interconnected by the tongue 15 that a complete closed article is had, which can be readily carried in the pocket or pocketbook. When it is desired to remove lint and other matter from a garment, it is merely necessary to pull out the tongue 15 from the slot 14 and fold the flaps 12 and 13 over the back or bottom wall 10, as is best shown in Figures 3, 5 and 7, and the flaps are then connected by reinserting the tongue 15 through the slot 14. By folding the flaps 12 and 13 over the back or bottom wall 10, a substantially tubular sleeve is provided in conjunction with the side walls 11 and the bottom wall 10, and the uppermost leaf is exposed. The formed sleeve provides means, whereby the article can be slipped over the fingers of the user, as shown in Figure 4, and the outermost leaf of adhesive can then be easily wiped over a garment to remove lint and dirt therefrom.

As shown in Figure 5, the outermost leaf has been used and is covered with lint and dirt. Consequently, this leaf is ready to be removed from the pad to expose the next clean adhesive leaf to view and for use.

From the foregoing description, it can be seen that I have provided a novel article for removing lint and other dirt from a garment by the use of pieces of adhesive tape, and that the construction is such that the adhesive tape is normally protected by the flaps of the package and these flaps can be folded back to form a manipulating finger receiving sleeve.

Changes in details may be made without departing from the spirit or the scope of this invention but what I claim as new is:

A pocket article for removing lint and dirt from garments comprising a disposable package formed from a single sheet of flexible material and including a back Wall, spaced parallel side Walls and overlapping flaps formed on the side w'a1ls,-a pad of sheets'of adhesive connected to "the back wail between the side Walls, saitl fl-aps being foldable over the pad in one position of the flaps, one of said flaps having 'a slot and the other of said flaps having a tongue inser'table in the slot when the flaps are over the pad, said side Walls and flaps being foldable, in another position, over the back of the package to expose the pad and to provide a finger receiving sleeve, the tongue being insertable in the slot'of the other flap to hold the flaps in their overlapping sleeve forming position.
