This invention relates to scrapers and. more
particularly to the type including a coiled re

instance a utensil.
Although there are on the market numerous

It is the still further object herein to provide a
coi1 of scraping material within the scraper holder
together with means secured to said coil for limit
ing feeding movement of the portion thereof pro
jecting out from the mouth of the scraper.
Such means secured upon the inner end of the
wife to resort to using her ?ngernails to remove
coiled scraper substance, as for instance a bar or
aids, such as metal, metal wool, rubber and plas
tic scrapers, for scraping surfaces such as dishes,
pans, painted and other surfaces, they all have one
or more major faults which, to offset long soaking

of the scraper device in facilitating insertion of the

pecially metal wool, often puncture the skin.
To overcome this di?iculty a novel scraper is
disclosed herein which will effectively and easily
remove obstinate food particles or other matter
closely adhering to the surface of dishes or kitchen
utensils being washed.
It is the object of the present invention to pro
vide a suitable holder and applicator within which
is operatively provisioned and stored in coiled
form a continuous strip of ?exible relatively stiff
material as for instancea plastic or metallic sub
stance.
It is the object of the present invention to pro

part of the coiled scraper holder and projecting
therefrom, as a means of manually applying the
scraper insert to the surface of dishes or other
kitchen utensils.

tive frictional engagement direction with the
scraping material.
These and, other objects will appear in the fol
lowing speci?cation and claims. The invention
therefore relates to the various arrangements of
the elements thereof and their combination as illustrated in the drawing in which

It is the object of this invention to make a por

manual frictional pressure for resisting relative
movement of the scraper insert back into the
throat member during the scraping operation. It
is contemplated that various other means may
also be employed for providing such frictional re
lationship.
It is the further object herein to provide a feed

Y Fig. 1 shows the point of contact I8 of ?exible
scraper member I5, with respect to the dish or
utensil surface, while the outer edge I9 is adapted
for operative chiseling contact with the material
sought to be removed from said surface. The
curved under surface at 20 of throat I2 provides
gripping means for manually operating the
scraper, the recess formed thereby affording suf
?cient clearance to protect the knuckles of the
user when utilizing said scraper.
Figs. 3, 4, 5 and 6 illustrate additional slightly
different shapes of mouth I3 through which
scraper I5 projects, whereby various degrees of
stiffness and curvature of the operating edge I9
