Abstract: A container for accommodating a fluid, gel-like or pasty medium in a container chamber into which it is possible to dip a brush and which has a removal opening in which there is seated a closure plug which tapers in a stub-like manner into the container chamber and has a through-passage for the introduction of a stem-mounted brush and for stripping the brush when the latter is drawn out of the container chamber, the stem being fastened, by way of an end which is located opposite the brush, on a container head which can be positioned on the removal opening in order for the brush to be stored in the container chamber, it being the case that the container chamber is filled with a breath-freshening oral-hygiene medium into which a brush in the form of an interdental brush for cleaning the spaces between the teeth is inserted in a withdrawable manner.
Abstract: The applicator includes an exterior layer of liquid retaining material, an interior layer of liquid barrier material, an interior layer of filler material and an exterior layer of powder retaining material. The liquid barrier layer is interposed between the liquid retaining layer and the filler layer.

Abstract: A container for semi-solid materials which includes a container member to accommodate such material, a lid member adapted to be repeatedly placed on and taken off the container member. The lid member includes a lid portion adapted to close a material removal opening of the container. There is furthermore an application device and a polishing device which are accommodated in concealed positions in the lid member and may be retracted from such concealed positions on a side of the lid portion remote from the container member.

Abstract: An enamel or paint touch-up kit for paint repair, expecially on automobiles, is disclosed consisting of an enamel container with a screw cap, the base of a touch-up brush extending into the container being attached to this screw cap. Additionally, a rust-removing tool is provided which is mounted, with its base in opposition to the base of the brush, to the screw cap and projecting away from the screw cap in the opposite direction with respect to the brush, and being accommodated in a hollow space formed by a protective cap seated on the screw cap and enclosing the rust-removing tool on all sides. This arrangement has the advantage that the screw cap can still be used, as before, as a handle for operating the touch-up brush. For a rust-removing operation, it is merely necessary to remove the protective cap of the novel enamel touch-up stick so that the container then serves as a handle for manipulating the rust-removing tool with the same being fixedly joined to this handle.
