DIAPER CREAM APPLICATOR WITH LID

Pub Date: 2019-04-11

Pub Number: US20190104825

This invention offers improvements over the diaper rash cream applicator that I described in U.S. Pat. No. 8,920,059. The earlier invention provided an applicator apparatus and lid to facilitate one-handed application of diaper rash cream or other therapeutic cream. The present invention comprises the same essential parts and provides three particular improvements. First, this version has two sets of female screw threads, which fit two common neck diameters for squeeze tubes. Second, the new version has an improved applicator apparatus with a nozzle and a soft, flexible tip with opening flap, providing smoother and more even application of cream than the previous embodiment. Third, the present invention adds a tongue to the lid's interior. When the tube is stored in the lid, the tongue presses the soft, flexible tip of the applicator apparatus firmly against the opening of the nozzle, creating a leakproof and airtight seal.
