HENRY CASEVITZ, OF- PARIS, FRANCE.
HYGIENIC TEXTILE SPONGE.
Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Sept. 30,1913.
Application filed June 25, 1913. Serial No. 775,732.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENR CAsnvrrz, a citizen of the Republic of France, residing in Paris, France, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Hygienic Textile Sponges, which invention is fully set forth in the following specification.
' The object of the present invention is a hygienic and perfumed sponge of textile material.
The use of sponges for toilet purposes is contrary to all hygienic and antiseptic precepts. Subjected, in fact, to the simultaneous action of heat and moisture, the microbes that the sponges contain are placed under the most favorable conditions for their development just as they would be in a culture designed for such purpose. To remedy these drawbacks the applicant proposes to replace the ordinary sponge by a woolen material or a little ball of absorbent cotton, which would be only used once in [a toilet operation and canbe thrown away on account of its small cost. It is convenient to incorporate in this cloth min the small cotton ball a perfumed antiseptic sub-.
stance, mixed preferably with a soap-like product so that when the cotton is thrown into cold or tepid water, that is used for the toilet, a liquid is formed pleasant to the skin and consistent with hygienic princi: ples. It is not indispensable to incorporate in the sponge an antiseptic product to give it the desired hygienic qualities. The sponge in question can be rendered antiseptic by simply passing it through a stove,
and'for all ordinary purposes it is sufficient if it be manufactured with care and cleanliness without the necessity for placing it in a liquid really antiseptic or aseptic. More-- over, the preparation and the compression of the sponge can be attained either by pres- 7 sure by means of some suitable press or by blows. To impart to the cotton a form more suitable for sale, and transport, it is convenient to compress itby means of a hy draulic or other press to obtain thus small packets of a useful shape, which, placed in water, will rapidly and easily regain their original size. V
In the accompanying drawings Figures 1, 2, and 3 are views illustrative of successive stepsin the formation of the hygienic sponge of this invention Figs. 4 and 5 illustrate the swelling of the sponge of Fig. 3 when saturated with water.
In forming my hygienic sponge of cotton for example, I preferably take a piece of hydrophil cotton of rectangular form, Fig.
1, and give it a double fold as shown in Fig 2. The piece of cotton thus folded is then placed in a tubular matrix and subjected to pressure, by a piston working in the cylinder, sufficient to compress the cotton to the form of a circular disk or cylinder as shown in Fig. 3. The sponge or sponges thus formed may be packed in cases or cartons or wrapped in paper. Each disk constitutes a sponge intended for toilet use. When in usin such a sponge it is plunged into water; it rapidly lengthens to approximately the form shown in Fig. ,4, and then further swells and spreads to the .form shown in Fig. -5, to a volume which may be approximately twenty times the volume of the compressed disk.
What is claimed is 1. Ahygienic sponge made of a sheet or layer of unwoven fibers folded upon itself and highly compressed endwise to the form of a compact wad or disk'adapted when saturated with liquid to expand to many times its compressed volume and to unfold to a sheetor layer form.
2. A hygienic sponge made of a sheet or layer of absorbent cotton folded upon itself and highly compressedendwiseto the form of a compact wad or disk adapted when saturated with liquid to expand to many times its compressed volume and to unfold to a sheet or layer form.
In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the scribing witnesses.
