Jone J‘ ATTORNEYS Patented Apr. 5, 1938 2,112,963 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,112,963 WASHCLOTH, DISHCLOTH, OR THE LIKE Harold H. Jones, Kalamazoo, Mich.,.assignor to Kalamazoo Vegetable Parchment Company, Parchment, Mich. Application May 20, 1937, Serial No. 143,799 4 Claims. The main object of this invention is to provide a washcloth, dishcloth or the like which is effi cient, durable and economical. A further object is to provide a washcloth or treated or coated with a soap composition, thereby rendering the same highly desirable for water as is the case with fabrics. use by campers, for ?eld purposes, and by hotels ‘and the like. Where it is not desired to coat or treat the sheet with soap, it may be treated with glycerin which Objects pertaining to details and economies of 1 my invention will de?nitely appear from the de scription to follow. The invention is de?ned in the claims. A cloth embodying the features of my inven tion is clearly illustrated in the accompanying 15 drawing, in which: Fig. 1 is a conventionalized plan view of the article of my invention. Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary perspective new of my improved washcloth, dishcloth or the l e. 20 My improved washcloth or dishcloth comprises a sheet I of parchmentized creped paper having a plurality of uniformly distributed relatively small perforations 2 therein. These perfora tions are so spaced as to permit the free passage v from the creping adds greatly to the eiiiciency of the cloth. While the ?rst cost is relatively small, the cloth may be repeatedly used either as a wash cloth or a dishcloth. It is easily kept in a sanitary condition as the sheet does not absorb dishcloth having these advantages which may be i) (Cl. 15-208) of water therethrough when the cloth is crumpled together for use as a dishcloth, washcloth or the like. The sheet may be treated or coated with a soap solution and when so treated it is unneces sary to provide additional soap for some time. The roughened surface resulting from the creping of the paper provides recesses which not only e?ectively retain the soap but provides a roughened surface which is highly effective when _ the sheet is used either as a washcloth or as a " dishcloth. At the same time, when the sheet is wet it has a very soft feel and readily conforms to the hands or surface being cleaned. The holes or perforations 2 permit the free passage of water through the sheet so that when 40 the sheet is crumpled and squeezed there is little or no tendency to cause the water to squirt out as is likely to occur with_an unperforated sheet of this character. When used as a dishcloth the , edges of the perforations serve as minute scrap ing surfaces, so the device is highly eflicient as a dishcloth. The roughened surface resulting I increases its pliability. I have not attempted to illustrate a soap treated‘ sheet or a sheet carrying soap as this is applied as a solution and is not in evidence as a distinct coating. While I have illustrated my improved wash cloth or dishcloth mainly in conventional form, it is believed that this disclosure with the accom panying description will enable those skilled in the art to embody or adapt my improvements as may be desired. . Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: 1. A sheet adapted as a washcloth, dishcloth or the like of creped parchmentized paper treated with glycerin to increase its pliability and having a plurality of uniformly ‘distributed relatively 25 small perforations therein. 2. As an article of manufacture, a sheet of parchmentized paper treated with glycerin and having a plurality of perforations spaced to per mit the free passage of water therethrough when the sheet is crumpled together for use as a dish cloth, washcloth or the like. 3. As an article of manufacture, a sheet of creped parchmentized paper having a plurality of uniformly distributed relatively small per- '3 forations spaced to permit the free passage of water therethrough when the sheet is crumpled together for use as a dishcloth, washcloth or the like. 4. As an article of manufacture, a sheet of creped parchmentized paper having a plurality of perforations spaced to permit the free passage of water therethrough when the sheet is crumpled together for use as a dishcloth, washcloth or the like.
