Patented July 19, 1938 2,123,947 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFHCE 2,123,947 KITCHEN IMPLEMENT Harry Hertzberg, New York, N. Y., assignor to Hertzberg Patents, Inc., New York, N. Y., a cor poration of New York Application September 5, 1936, Serial No. 99,553 8 Claims. (Cl. 15—105) This invention relates to mops and more par ticularly to that type of mop used for cleaning pots and pans in household use. It is an object of the present invention to pro vide an implement which permits not only the mopping and cleaning of kitchen ware but also the removal of baked on particles by scrubbing and scraping the surface to be cleaned. It is another object to provide an implement of 10 this kind which is very simple in construction and consists of a small number of parts and therefore may be sold at a very small price. It is a further object to provide means on a mop of this type for holding a wad of abrasive or 15 spongy cleaning material and for permitting re newal or exchange of such material. I2b (Fig. 1) and be replaced by one of steel wool or other suitable cleaning material. The tang I3 is embedded in an axial bore in the end of a wooden handle I6 whereby all the parts of the mop are securely held in their relative '5 positions. In Fig. 2 the improved mop is shown as being used for light work in which case the squeegee or pliable rubber plate I4 pushes off soft substances while the sponge rubber pad I I presses through 10 the mop cords, which have opened up at the bot tom as they are pushed back under funnel I5, and touches the surface to be cleaned. When heavier or harder Workq is to be accom plished, a scraper I4 of metal may be substituted 15 and pushed or scraped along the surface to remove Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the description thereof taken in connection with the accompanying draw 20 ing in which- hard substances or baked on substances. For such work also the member II may be formed of steel Wool and may engage the surface directly as Figure 1 is a side view of a mop embodying the and thus rub off and polish spots on the surface. The member I I when soiled or worn may easily present invention and partly in section on the line I—I of Fig. 2. Figure 2 is a side View of the device showing it 25 in use for removing substance from a surface and for cleaning it simultaneously. Fig. 3 is a side view of the device showing its application for rubbing hard baked on substances 30 from a surface. Fig. 4 is a sectional View taken on the line 4-—4 be renewed by pushing it out of the loop I2a and pushing a new one through the same. The improved mop has been shown only in its 25 preferred form and it should be understood that changes in details may be made without departing from the principle of the invention and therefore I desire to be limited only by the state of the prior of Fig. 1. Referring to the drawing, I0 represents mop art and the appended claims. I claim: 1. A mop‘ including a handle, a looped Wire hav ping material, consisting preferably of cotton ing end portions ?xed within said handle, mop cords, and II is a wad of scrubbing material such threads held within the looped part of said wire and having their ends depending cup shaped from 35 said handle and a Wad of soft, resilient cleaning material also held by said wire so that said clean ing material is surrounded by said cup shaped mop 35 as steel wool or sponge rubber. The cotton cords I0 and the scrubbing material I I are held together by ring shaped loops IZa and I2b, respectively, formed by a single metal wire I2 so that the scrub bing material I I is placed in front of the mopping 40 material and covers the wire ring I2a enclosing it completely in the conical member. The wire ends are twisted to form a stem or tang I3. A scraper or squeegee plate I4 is mounted on the tang I3. This scraper is preferably square shaped 45 as shown in Fig. 4 and is provided at its front side with a conical extension or funnel I5 which covers the loop Ho and partly the wad of cleaning ma terial I I. The plate I4 with its funnel I5 may be made of different material to suit the cleaning OX 0 shown in Fig. 3 by pushing back the cotton cords, operations to be performed for light cleaning, such as semi-hard rubber. Wad I I may be made of sponge rubber for certain purposes and for more intensive cleaning and scrubbing the plate and funnel members may be made of metal and the 5 wad I I may be removed by pushing it out of loop 30 threads and a resilient tubular member surround ing the Wire loop and a portion of the mop threads 40 held thereby and connected to said handle by means of said wire. 2. A mop including a handle, mop threads at one end of said handle, a wad of soft, resilient cleaning material, a looped wire surrounding said 45 cleaning material and said mop threads and hav ing a stem held axially in said handle and a scraper plate on said stem between said threads and said handle. 3. A mop including a handle, a bunch of mop threads, a looped wire surrounding said threads and having a twisted tang within said handle, a ?at scraper plate between said threads and said handle, and a wad of soft, resilient cleaning mate- 55 2,123,947 rial held by said wire adjacent to said threads on the side opposite to said handle. 4. A mop comprising a handle, a polygonal scraper plate lying ?at against one end-face of said handle, a hollow conical portion integral with said plate concentric therewith and ?aring out ward therefrom, and mop material held within said conical portion by means of a looped wire surrounding said mop- material and having a stem passing through said plate into said handle. 5. A mop comprising an elongated handle, a polygonal scraper plate arranged concentrically with and perpendicularly to the handle axis, mop cup, a looped wire encircling said threads, a wad of soft, resilient cleaning material held by the said wire adjacent to the said mop threads and a tang formed by said wire passing through said cup into said handle. 7. A mop comprising a substantially cylindrical handle, a cup shaped member in axial alignment with said handle and having the bottom part of the cup adjacent to the handle, mop threads within said cup, a looped Wire encircling said 10 threads, a wad of soft resilient cleaning material held by a second loop of the said wire adjacent to said mop threads and a tang formed by said wire passing through said cup into said handle. 8. A mop including a handle, mopping material threads and a wad of soft resilient cleaning mate rial held on said plate on the side opposite to said handle by means of a looped wire surrounding said "at one end of said handle, a wad of cleaning mate rial in front of said mopping material, a rubber mop threads and said cleaning material and hav scraper behind said mopping material and a wire ing a stem passing through said plate into said handle. 6. A mop comprising an elongated handle, a cup shaped member in axial alignment with said handle and having the bottom part of the cup adjacent to the handle, mop threads within said member extending through said mopping material and scraper for securing same to the handle, said 20 wire member having a loop portion for removably holding the wad of cleaning material.
