"The present invention relates, generally stated,
dorant can is generally designated by therefere
to that class of article usually termed in the
trade by the name of a ‘deodorizing device for
ence numeral 5 and is shown to include a pair of
sections '5 and l. The sections 6 and 1 are pref
erablyformed of a material of the type vgener
ally used in the manufacture of cans, the section
6 being shaped somewhat in the manner of a
cone top can for packaging beer. The section 6
At the present time there are a number of de
vices being manufactured in which a wick is in
serted in the neck of a bottle or similar receptacle
containing a deodorizing material. In devicesuof
this kind the wick is pulled out of the neck of
the bottle in upright position, but it has been
found that an insu?icient amount of the liquid is
evaporated to thoroughly deodorize the room in
which it is used.
comprises a cylindrical shaped body 8 formed
with scams 9 and 40, the upper end of the body
being cone-shaped as indicated at II, having a
neck l2 sealed with a standard crown'closure I3
that is press ?tted on the neck. '

The upper section 1, hereinafter termed a va-v
porizer, comprises a cylindrical wall or body‘ l4
An important object of the invention, there
fore, is to provide a deodorizing device in the form 15 having a lower beaded end IS. The upper end of
the vaporizer l is sealed by means of a‘fdomeé
of a can provided with-a large area of absorbent
shaped closure member [1, said memberhaving

Another object of the invention is to provide 20 double seamed to the upper end l5 thereof as‘ in

of wire or similar‘material and is attached to the
vaporizer ,1 during the fabrication thereof.
In the modified form of the invention shown
in Figure 3, the end I‘! is formed with an inter
rupted bead 26 near the edge of the fabric, the
bead being preferably in six segments. A series
of annularly spaced perforations 21 are also
formed in the end I’! in close proximity to the
