  • Patent number: 9421814
    Abstract: A marking device for writing or drawing on a given surface can be made of any material that leaves a residue or makes legible marks on a surface. The marking device can be used to make precise lines or shapes on any material, including rough surfaces, such as, wood, concrete, drywall, tiles, etc. The marking device can consistently produce thin lines without needing any sharpening. The marking device can be attached to a support frame, which can serve as a handle for grasping and using the marking device. The support frame can further provide a housing to shield the marking device from damage when not in use. The marking device can be shaped as a razorblade and be configured to fit into any standard utility knife, which may serve as the support frame. Such an arrangement allows a utility knife to be reversibly converted into a carpenter pencil.

  • Publication number: 20140037363
    Abstract: A personal hygiene device is provided to assist a user to wipe him or herself, another, or an area of the home. The device contains a gripping head constructed of a flexible material and contains a gripping element, which may hold a wipe within it. The device also contains a rigid housing, and a pump at the opposite end of the gripping head, such that upon actuation of the pump increased fluid pressure inside the gripping head opens the internal grips to an extent that any wipe held therein will be released. In an embodiment of the invention, the housing contains a hinge so the unit may be folded for storage, or extended and locked in place for use.

  • Publication number: 20100175704
    Abstract: A device for applying a product may comprise a first portion and a second portion moveable with respect to the first portion so as to selectively place the device in one of a closed position and an open position. The first portion and the second portion may define a substantially closed reservoir when the device is in the closed position. The device may further comprise an application member. The application member may be at least partially compressible and configured such that, when the device is in the closed position, the application member is at least partially compressed inside the substantially closed reservoir and, when the device is moved from the closed position to the open position, the application member becomes substantially uncompressed. The application member may be configured so that when the application member is uncompressed, the application member is capable of being loaded with substantially all of an amount of product that the device is capable of containing.

  • Patent number: 6851881
    Abstract: A scrub brush with a handle by which the user grips the brush, a two-part scrubber portion which provides the scrubbing action, and a connecting staff between the handle and the scrubber. The scrubber may be of bristles, springy plastic mesh, rag-like or sponge material. The scrubber is designed so that a portion of the scrubber furthest from the handle can be compressed into a small diameter cylindrical shape of such dimension that a suitably sized ring of solid cleaning agent can pass over the compressed scrubber portion. When the compressed scrubber portion is released from its restraint, it expands to the original shape and size, thereby confining the ring of solid cleaning agent between the two scrubber portions.

  • Patent number: 6644879
    Abstract: An applicator for a fabric treatment to effect mechanical stain removal has a no rinse fabric treatment composition and an application device. The application device induces a certain frictional stress upon the fabric and has a frictional stress value on the fabric optimally chosen to effect fabric treatment and is at the same time kind to the fabric. Advantageously, the application device has a frictional stress value of from 0.05 N mm−2 to 1 N mm−2. The frictional stress should be high enough to ensure good mechanical stain removal, good delivery of the fabric treatment composition into the fabric and allow fabric treatment with fabric friendly chemical compositions at low levels.

  • Patent number: 6485212
    Abstract: A swiveling handle is attached to a square, rectangular, or oval curved base plate, with curvature selected to match the curvature of a vehicle tire sidewall. A pad containing the liquid or gel to be applied to a tire is attached to the underside of the curved base plate in order to contact the tire sidewall, so that one quick circular motion of the operator's hand applies the liquid or gel uniformly to the entire sidewall of the tire. A matching holder with a curved sponge or pad for resaturating the pad on the curved base plate may be included.
