Abstract

A device for keeping paired socks and similar before, during and after washing, consisting of a cloth (1) having, on one side only or on both, a plurality of net-shaped mesh bags (2) provided with closing and fastening means (3) and (4), each for containing one pair of socks to be washed, and with eyelets (5) for hooking and tying (6) and (7) placed on the upper part of said cloth (1).

Description

A DEVICE FOR KEEPING PAIRED SOCKS AND SIMILAR BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER WASHING

The present invention concerns a device for keeping paired socks and similar before, during and after washing.

It is well known that, after use, above mentioned garments are usually placed into containers for dirty clothes and then put, all together, into the washing machine; this inevitably determines the separation of the pair of socks and similar, thus also causing the mixing up of different colours and models. As a consequence, once socks and similar are washed and dried, they are to be paired again, with a considerable waste of time and energy. Furthermore, in the case of shapes, colours and patterns similar between each other it appears difficult and boring to pair them again, and errors are sometimes unavoidable.

At present, the prior art does not provide any effective solution to above described need.

It is therefore the aim of the present invention to provide a device for completely solving above described need in a simple, practical and effective manner.

The aim set forth is reached by means of the device according to the present invention, consisting of a cloth having, on one side only or on both, a plurality of net-shaped mesh bags, with upper closing and fastening means, each able to contain a pair of socks to be washed, with eyelets for hooking and means for getting tied to the dried, provided in the upper part of said mesh.

According to the present invention, each of said bags has a closing system with a zip, a stretch, buttons or hooks and is internally divided so as to form to two sections for housing each of the two socks forming the pair, so as to prevent them from getting intertwined during washing, for making quicker also the following drying. Furthermore, each bag has a fastening system consisting of a small elastic band or a similar clip for fixing the socks during washing and after, when the device according to the present invention is placed onto the drier.

According to the present invention, said eyelets for hooking placed in the upper part of the carrying mesh shall keep the device tied in a lumber-room rather in the basket for the dirty cloths, until the bags are filled with socks or similar to be washed.

At last, the device according to the present invention has means for getting tied to the drier consisting of small bands and similar, provided with a closing system making use of snap fasteners, or buttonholes and buttons, or hooks, or small paired strings to be tied to the rope of the drier, or similar mechanisms. The advantage deriving from the device according to the present invention is evident.

The device according to the present invention will be explained more in detail hereinbelow relating to the enclosed drawings in which a preferred embodiment is shown.

Figure 1 shows a front view of a device for keeping paired socks and similar before, during and after washing.

Figure 2 shows a front view of a device containing the socks, ready for use.

Figures 3 and 4 show in detail the housing of the socks or similar before, during and after washing, said housing consisting of a cloth

1 having on one or both sides a plurality of net-shaped mesh bags 2, with upper closing and fastening means 3 and 4, each divided in two parts for containing the elements of each pair of socks, and provided also with upper eyelets 5 for hooking and small bands or similar 6 for getting tied to the drier S for drying, with snap fastener

7 closing system.

It shall be underlined that the net-shaped mesh of said bags 2 allows a perfect passage of the water and therefore a perfect washing of the socks C and similar. Furthermore, the device according to the present invention may be used also for washing stockings, which are to be carefully handled to their extreme delicacy.
