DEVICE FOR DISSEIMINATING ODORS Filed Sept. 8, 1953 ATTOR/YEK 2,766,067 DEVICE FOR DISSEMINATING ODORS Barney Shinberg, Lawrence, Mass. Application September 8, 1958, Serial No. 378,801 1 Claim. (Cl. 29920) This invention relates generally to devices for vaporizing volatile substances, and is particularly directed to a device for removing objectionable odors from a particular area and replacing the odors with a fragrant scent.

The particular embodiment of the present invention, which is illustrated in the drawings and which will be described hereinafter in greater detail, comprises generally a receptacle having an opening, and a porous container filled with scented pellets and disposed at least partially within the receptacle, so that the pellets exteriorly of the receptacle will disseminate their scent to the surrounding area.

It is a principal object of the present invention to provide a simple and efiicient means for deodorizing and/or fragrantly scenting any desired area. That is, the device of the present invention is adapted for use with either pleasant smelling essential oils, or with volatile substances adapted to deaden or anesthesize the olfactory organ.

It is another object of the present invention to provide a device of the type described, in which the volatile substance may be quickly and easily replenished with a minimum of skill, so that the device is well adapted for indefinite use and reuse.

It is still another object of the present invention to provide a vaporizing device of the type described in which the rate of volatilization may be readily adjusted as desired, and which may be selectively rendered ineffective so as to afford maximum utilization of the essential oils.

It is a further object of the present invention to provide a highly improved device of the type described, having the characteristics mentioned in the foregoing paragraphs, which is simple 1n construction, requiring a minimum number of parts, and which is durable and reliable in operation. An allied object of the present invention is to provide a device of the type described in which all of the component parts are commercially available or may be manufactured without the use of expensive equipment, so that the device may be manufactured and sold at a reasonable cost.

Other objects of the present invention will become the following specification and to the accompanying drawings, which form a material part of this disclosure.

The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combinations of elements, and arrangements of parts, tion hereinafter described and of which the indicated by the appended claim.

In the drawings:

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view showing a device constructed in accordance with the present invention, the device being illustrated in effective condition.

Fig. 2 is a side elevational view, partly broken away, showing the device of Fig. 1 in operative condition.

Fig. 3 is a plan view showing one element of the device before assembly therewith.

Fig. 4 is a perspective view showing the pellets of the present invention, as removed from the device.

Referring now more particularly to the drawings, the embodiment of the invention illustrated therein comprises a receptacle, generally designated 10, having a container 11 disposed therein.

The receptacle 10 is generallycylindrical having a closed bottom wall 11 and a cylindrical upstanding side wall 12 extending about the peripheral edge of the bottom wall 11. The side wall 12 terminates in an upwardly facing edge 13 to provide the receptacle with an open upper end. Adjacent to and spaced below the upper edge 13 of the receptacle 10 is formed a peripheral bead 14, for a purpose to appear presently.

The container 11 is formed of a tubular knit fabric 20, see Fig. 3, having its opposite ends open as at 21 and 22. The tubular knitted fabric 20 is preferably of gathered and tied or otherwise secured in closed condition. The tubular piece is then turned inside out, or inverted, so that the gathered portion will be disposed interiorly. In this manner, an open ended container is provided with a minimum expenditure in time and materials.

In Fig. 4 are shown a plurality of erally cylindrical configuration. The pellets are preferably fabricated of felt or other absorbent material, and should be sufiiciently small in size so as to provide greater exposed surface area. In practice, it has been found desirable to form the container 11 from tubular knit material approximately 4 /2 inches long by 2 inches in proportion the pellets approximately /2 inch in diameter and 4 inch thick.

The pellets may then be saturated or impregnated with the desired volatile substance. It has been found preferable to employ a five to ten percent essential oil-aromatic solution for long lasting effect.

pellets 25 of gen- After impregnation, container 11 through the remaining open end thereof, a suflicient number of pellets being inserted so as to expand the container to a cylindrical form slightly larger than that of the receptacle 10. The open end of the container 11 is then gathered and or other suitable means, so that the container will now safely enclose all of the pellets 25.

For purposes of transportation and storage, or otherwise, when the device is inoperative, the container 11 may be inserted completely within the receptacle 10 and a cap 30 snugly engaged over the upper end portion of the receptacle. It will be noted that the cap provided with a curled rim or edge 31 adapted to abuttingly engage the bead 14 when it is in closing relation with respect to the receptacle. As the container 11 and side walls of the receptacle 10.

In operation, the cap 30 is removed from the receptacle 10 and the container 11 is drawn up so as to extend out through the open end 13 of the receptacle, as seen in Fig. 2. The frictional engagement between the container 11 and receptacle 10 will serve to retain the container in its extended position.

When more or less volatilization manner, the strength of any particular scent or odor certain changes and modifications may be made within may be selectively determined by positioning the conthe spirit of the invention and the scope of the appended tainer with respect to the receptacle. Of course, any claim.
