  • Publication number: 20200063077
    Abstract: A single-use wipe includes a nonwoven fabric, at least one pocket defined within the fabric, the at least one pocket configured to receive at least a portion of a hand of a user of the wipe, and one or more creases defining at least one fold, wherein the wipe is configured to be folded on the one or more creases prior to being inserted into a package. The package is configured to house a burst pod containing a quantity of a fluid such as a cleanser including, for example, glucose oxidase. Prior to removal of the wipe from the package, the burst pod can be ruptured, thereby at least partially saturating the wipe with the cleanser. The then at least partially saturate wipe can be removed from the package, unfolded and used.

  • Patent number: 9198468
    Abstract: A support component for attachment to a lower edge of a bra, having a generally U-shaped molded body defined in an x-direction, a y-direction perpendicular to the x-direction, and a z-direction perpendicular to both the x-direction and the y-direction, the body being bisected in part by an x-y plane, a lower curved portion of the body extending generally in the x-direction within the x-y plane, a first upper side portion of the body extending from a first end of the lower curved portion in both the y-direction and the z-direction and fully crossing to a first side of the x-y plane, and a second upper side portion of the body extending from a second, opposite end of the lower curved portion in both the y-direction and the z-direction and fully crossing to a second, opposite side of the x-y plane.

  • Publication number: 20150189967
    Abstract: A hair dryer includes a body having a handle portion, a middle portion operatively connected to the handle portion and at least one air duct portion extending away from the middle portion in a direction non-parallel to the handle portion and having walls with apertures. The hair dryer also includes a blower mounted within the body to generate an air flow through the at least one air duct portion to discharge through the apertures on the walls of the at least one air duct portion in a direction non-parallel to a central axis of the at least one air duct portion.

  • Patent number: 7814601
    Abstract: A vibrating hair brush provides enhanced detangling of user's hair. The brush has a bristle pad comprising a plurality of bristles disposed in a brush head. The bristle pad is supported within the brush head by a vibrating motor and isolator assembly disposed for directing a vibratory movement of the motor to a bristle pad movement in a plane generally parallel to a user's scalp. The motor and isolator assembly effectively translate a circular vibratory movement of the offset weight into an elliptical movement of the bristle pad while insulating the vibration caused by the movement of the weight from a handle of the brush.

  • Publication number: 20080210252
    Abstract: A vibrating hair brush provides enhanced detangling of hair including a head portion having a motor assembly for operating a vibrating actuator and a plurality of bristles depending from a bristle pad. The actuator is disposed for generating a vibrating movement of the bristles in a curvilinear direction within a plane generally parallel to the bristle pad and tangential to the user's scalp. The vibrating actuator comprises an offset weight rotating in a plane generally parallel to the bristle pad.

  • Patent number: 6886694
    Abstract: A nestable and stackable food storage container has a base with a bottom panel. The bottom panel has an upper side, a lower side, and a base perimeter. The base also has a cylindrical side wall extending generally upward from and around the base perimeter. The side wall terminates at a top edge and defines an open top. A lid has a top panel with a top side, a bottom side, and a lid perimeter. A nesting structure is provided at least in part on a portion of the base and at least in part on a portion of the lid. The nesting structure permits removably nesting the lower side of the base with the lid in either a standard lid orientation or an inverted lid orientation.

  • Patent number: 6854608
    Abstract: A turntable for storing one or more items, including a base having a first diameter and a top rotatably coupled to the base and having a second diameter and a surface for storing the one or more items. The first dimension is larger than the second dimension to provide an offset so that objects stored adjacent the base do not interfere with rotation of the top.

  • Publication number: 20030136790
    Abstract: A food storage container has a base with a bottom surface and a wall extending upward from a base perimeter of the bottom surface. The wall terminates at a top edge and defines an open top of the base. A rim extends at least partially around the base and extends radially outward from the upstanding wall. A lid is removably received over the open top of the base. The lid has a generally horizontal section with a lid perimeter that engages the top edge of the wall. An opening tab extends radially outward from part of the lid perimeter a sufficient distance to define an exposed tab segment adjacent a portion of the rim.
