Claims:
1. A cleansing wipe pack comprising: a container; a stack of tissues stored in said container; a bag disposed in said container, having an inner surface, and defining an enclosed space therein; and an amount of a cleansing liquid stored sealingly in said enclosed space in said bag; wherein said cleansing liquid is in a flowable state in said bag and is in direct contact with said inner surface of said bag.

2. The cleansing wipe pack as claimed in claimed 1, wherein said bag is made from a plastic material.

3. The cleansing wipe pack as claimed in claimed 1, wherein said bag is thin and is disposed within said stack of said tissues.

4. The cleansing wipe pack as claimed in claimed 1, wherein said container is made from a plastic material, has a top wall, and is formed with a top opening in said top wall for access to said tissues in said container, said container further having a cover sheet connected to said top wall of said container for covering said top opening.

5. The cleansing wipe pack as claimed in claimed 1, wherein said bag is disposed within said stack of tissues.

6. The cleansing wipe pack as claimed in claimed 5, wherein the cleaning liquid stored in the bag flows out of said bag and wets the stack of tissues stored in said container in response to mechanical piercing of said bag.

7. The cleansing wipe pack as claimed in claimed 6, wherein the stack of tissues stored in said container are pre-wetted whereby the mechanical mechanical piercing of said bag provides additional wetting of said stack of tissues stored in said container.

8. The cleansing wipe pack as claimed in claimed 1, wherein the cleaning liquid stored in the bag flows out of said bag and wets the stack of tissues stored in said container in response to mechanical piercing of said bag.

9. The cleansing wipe pack as claimed in claimed 8, wherein the the stack of tissues stored in said container are pre-wetted whereby the mechanical mechanical piercing of said bag provides additional wetting of said stack of tissues stored in said container.

10. A method of wetting a stack of tissues disposed in a container, the method comprising: providing a bag in said container, said bag being positioned adjacent the tissues in said stack; defining an enclosed space in said bag and sealing an amount of a liquid in said enclosed space of said bag; and piercing said bag to thereby allow the liquid stored in said bag to flow out of said bag via pierced holes in said bag an onto tissues in said stack of tissues disposed in said container.

11. The method as claimed in claimed 8, wherein said bag disposed within said stack of said tissues.

12. The method as claimed in claimed 8, wherein the step of piercing of said bag includes piercing of at least certain ones of said issues disposed in said container.

Description:

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The invention relates to a cleansing wipe pack, more particularly to a cleansing wipe pack including a thin bag of a cleansing liquid for tissues stored in the cleansing wipe pack.

2. Description of the Related Art

FIGS. 1 and 2 illustrate a conventional cleansing wipe pack that includes a container 1 and a stack of tissues 2 that are wetted with a cleansing liquid and stored in the container 1. Usually, for convenient access, the container 1 has a top wall formed with a top opening 10 for access to the tissues 2 stored in the container 1. The container 1 further has a repositionable cover sheet 11 connected to the top wall of the container 1 for covering the top opening 10. The cleansing wipe pack is disadvantageous in that the wetted tissues 2 gradually became dry after a period of time.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Therefore, the object of the present invention is to provide a cleansing wipe pack that includes a bag of a cleansing liquid to replenish the wet condition of tissues stored therein.

Accordingly, a cleansing wipe pack of the present invention comprises: a container; a stack of tissues stored in the container; a bag disposed in the container and defining an enclosed space therein; and an amount of a cleansing liquid stored sealingly in the enclosed space in the bag.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

Other features and advantages of the present invention will become apparent in the following detailed description of the preferred embodiment with reference to the accompanying drawings, of which:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a conventional cleansing wipe pack;

FIG. 2 is a schematic sectional view of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a schematic sectional view of the preferred embodiment of a cleansing wipe pack according to the present invention; and

FIG. 4 is a schematic sectional view to illustrate how the tissues stored in a container of the preferred embodiment can be wetted by piercing a thin bag of a cleansing liquid disposed within the stack of the tissues with a needle.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

Referring to FIG. 3, the preferred embodiment of a cleansing wipe pack according to the present invention is shown to be adapted for cleaning eyeglasses (not shown) and includes: a container 1; a stack 2 of tissues 21 stored in the container 1; a bag 3 disposed in the container 1 and defining an enclosed space therein; and an amount of a cleansing liquid 30 stored sealingly in the enclosed space in the bag 3.

In this embodiment, the tissues 21 are pre-wetted with the cleansing liquid 30. The container 1 is made from a plastic material, has a topwall 12, and is formed with a top opening 10 in the top wall 12 for access to the tissues 21 in the container 1. The container 1 further has a cover sheet 11 connected to the top wall 12 of the container 1 for covering the top opening 10 so as to prevent drying of the tissues 21 in the container 1. The bag 3 is made from a plastic material, is thin, is disposed within the stack 2 of the tissues 21 in the container 1, and has top and bottom walls 300, 301. The tissues 21 disposed under the bag 3 are protected by the bag 3 so that undesired drying of the tissues 21 can be deterred. When the tissues 21 in the container 1 became dry after a period of time, the wet condition of the tissues 21 can be replenished by piercing the top and bottom walls 300, 301 of the bag 3 with a needle 4 (as best shown in FIG. 4), which results in seeping of the cleansing liquid 30 through holes 33 formed in the bottom wall 301 of the bag 3 and holes 32 formed in the top wall 300 of the bag 3.

Alternatively, the tissues 21 stored in the container 1 may be originally in a dry state. As such, the tissues 21 are maintained in the dry state during storage, and are wetted by conducting the aforesaid piercing operation prior to use.

With the inclusion of the bag 3 of the cleansing liquid 30 in the cleansing wipe pack of this invention, the aforesaid drawback of the prior art can be eliminated.

While the present invention has been described in connection with what is considered the most practical and preferred embodiment, it is understood that this invention is not limited to the disclosed embodiment but is intended to cover various arrangements included within the spirit and scope of the broadest interpretation so as to encompass all such modifications and equivalent arrangements.
