' peculiarly adapta wide range of utility, 1s ed for embodiment in av washing, scrubb and rinsing device for use in the bath.
An object of the invention is vto provide a wash cloth and sponge, so combin not only retain-the ood qualities of both, but will eliminate un esirable characteristics of the articles which are inci-` dental to their normalindependent use.
Another object is to provide ,a neat, attractive dainty article of this character which is of simple, durable construction, entirelysanitary, and well suited to meet the requirements of economical manufacture and convenient manipulation.
In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the invention the sponge is com pletely encased in a terry cloth cover which protects the skin of the user f direct contact with the'sponge roper. The sponge on the other han ten s t e cover fully stretched or distended so that there is no possibility of the terry cloth bea moist and crumpled condition ht be conducive to mildew or might result in the cloth being disagreeable to the' touch when required for reuse. The cloth protects the sponge from becoming torn or scraggly and even though disintegration of the sponge finally occurs the brokenaway pieces thereof are retained in the bag like covering of terrfy cloth.
The invention may be more ully understood from the following description inconnection with the accompanying drawings, wherein:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a combination sponge and wash cloth embodying the invention.
Figure 2 is therethrough.
The sponge flat oval shape `with straight side is held under sli ht compression casing of terry c oth This casing is ma e preferably of two similarly sha but differently colored sections of c oth 11, 12.
