This invention relates to windowcleaners- and ’ of the felt extend beyondthe groove 2 and the
its general object is to provide a cleaning de
vice that is not only c-apable of luse in washing
and wiping glass and the like, but will remove all
5 foreign matter therefrom without scratching the
same, in minimum time, with minimum effort."
An extremely important object of the inven
tion is to provide a window cleaner that includes
an abrasive material such, for example, as a fi
10 vbrous metallic wool therein as a cleaning ele
ment, and which is so arranged with a' polish
ure 1 and mounted in the groove 4 as well as
secured therein by adhesive material is a. strip 5
of metallic` wool. The strip 3 is likewise pro
vided with apertures 6 that extend through the
entire thickness thereof and communicates with
ing' element that the glass is polished as it is
the ends of the groove 4 so as to receive right
angle bent end portions 1 formed on the ends of '
Another object of the invention is to provide
15 a window cleaner of the character'set forth, that
lis simple in construction, inexpensive to manu
facture and extremely eiiìcient in use and service.
This invention also consists in certain other
features of construction and in the combination
20 and arrangement of the several parts, to be here
inafter fully described, illustrated in the accom
panying drawing and specifically pointed out in
the appended claims.
strip is not only secured in the groove but to the
entire longitudinal edge.
The strip of felt has arranged longitudinally
therein a vgroove or recess 4 that terminates in
wardly of' the ends of the felt as shown in >Fig
In describing‘my invention in detail, reference
25 will be had to the accompanying drawing where
in like characters denote like or corresponding
parts throughout the several views, and in which:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of thc window
cleaner that forms the subject matter of the pres
3o ent invention.
Figure 2 is a detail view illustrating the apfpli
cation of the metallic wool with respect to the
felt head of the device.
Figure 3 is a sectional view> taken transversely
35 through the device.
Figure 4 is a fragmentary Psectional view
through a portion of the device, illustrating a
slightly modified arrangement of certain of the
elements embodied in the present invention. ,
Referring to the drawingin detail, the refer
ence numeral I indicates the body member of
my window cleaner, and which as shown is sub
stantially rectangular in shape andrelatively
narrow. The body also acts in the capacityl as
45 the handle for the device and one longitudinal
edge thereof isl provided with a groove 2 which
is relatively shallow and extends the full length
of the body, as will be apparent upon inspection
of Figure 1.
the strip of metallic wool as clearly shown in>
Figure 5, it being apparent that the portions 'I 15
-"are also ñxed within the apertures 6 by adhe
sive material. 'I'he outer face of the strip 5 of
metallic wool may extend' beyond the outer face
of the strip 3 of felt, as illustrated in Fig. 4, or
the faces may be ñush with each other as shown
in Figure 3, as well as fiat, but in any event the
wool is embedded within the felt so that these
two elements cooperate in cleaning and polish
ing glass.
The sides of the body I are tapered toward the
opposite longitudinal edge thereof as best shown
in Figure '3, and the last mentioned edge has
disposed therein a. groove 8 that extends through
the ends of the body and has converging recesses
9 in the bottom thereof.
'I‘he groove 8 and recesses 9 are adapted to re
ceive a strip of rubber I0 that has its outer edge
beveled as shown, while its inner edge is pro
vided'with converging’tongues4 II to iit the con
verging recesses 9. The strip I0 and its tongues
are ñxed within the groove 8 and recesses 9 by
adhesive material. ~ It will be understood that the
strip I0 is designed primarily for wiping glass
after the latter has been washed and cleaned by
the felt and wool.
From-the above description and disclosure of
the drawing, it will be obvious that I have pro
vided a'window cleaning device that is capable
of removing all foreign matter from glass in an
easy and expeditious manner with very little ef
fort without scratching the glass, and this action
is accomplished through the instrumentality o_f

It is thought from the foregoing description
that the advantages and novel features of my in

the appended claims.
What I claim is:
1. A window cleaning device comprising a

in the groove of said body member, said strip of
longitudinally extending recess in an exposed. absorbent material having ,an aperture opening
into said recess adjacent each end thereof, and
