(oils-»105) 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 I 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 cleaned. angle bent end portions 1 formed on the ends of ' . I 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. f 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 35 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 the metallic wool'whlch has disposed forco-oper ation therewith felt in cleaning and polishing the Arranged in the groove 2 and secured .therein . glass, but the important feature of the device is the _metallic wool, as it is capable of removing terial is a strip 3 of absorbent material such, for dirt and other foreign matter with very little ef example, as felt or the like that is co-extensive fort, and which cannot be removed byíthe use of with the body I and is of the same width thereof washing, or other cleaning elements ' without _ 55 asbest shown in Figure 3, so that the portions strenuous eiforts on the part of the user. -50 by any well known means such as adhesive ma aioaeae It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of my in vention will be readily apparent. I desire it to be understood that I may make changes in the construction and in the combina’ tion and arrangement of the several parts, pro thereof and secured in the groove oi' said body member, and a strip oi abrasive material com prising aplurality oi elongated fibers secured in said recess and having a tace portion exposed for use and adjacent the surface oi said exposed side v oi' said absorbent material. vided that such changes fall within the scope of ' the appended claims. 10 What I claim is: 1. A window cleaning device comprising a handle body member having a groove Iormed therein, a strip of absorbent material having a 3. A window cleaning device comprising a body member having an edge portion with a longitudi nally extending groove therein, a strip of ab sorbent material having a longitudinally extend ing recess in an exposed side thereof and secured 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 15 body member, and a strip of abrasive material a strip of ñbrous abrasive material positioned in 16 secured in said recess and having an exposed face said recess and extending longitudinally there portion adjacent the surface of said exposed side of, said strip of abrasive material having a face side thereof and secured in said groove of the of said absorbent material. Y 2. A Window cleaning device comprising a han 20 dle body ¿member having a groove formed there in, a strip of absorbent material having a longi tudinally extending recess in an exposed side portion exposed' for use and adjacent the sur face of said exposed side of said absorbent ma terial and having its end portions extending into 20 said apertures. .
