TECHNICAL FIELD

The present invention relates, in general, to anti-vermin sheets for bedclothes and, more particularly, to a disposable anti-vermin sheet which is easily attached to bedclothes and is able to catch or prevent parasitic vermin on the bedclothes from being brought into contact with a user, and, as well, can remove dust from the bedclothes and prevent dust from dispersing when the user uses the bedclothes, thus protecting the skin of the user, minimizing irritation of the respiratory organs, and helping the user have a good sleep.

BACKGROUND ART

Generally, in methods of removing vermin (ticks, ants) from household bedclothes, there are methods in which vermicide is directly sprayed to kill vermin and repellent is used to prevent vermin from approaching. However, in the case of using the vermicide, the vermicide may be harmful to users. In the case of using the repellent, because the repellent does not function to catch vermin, there is a problem in that the vermin continue to exist somewhere nearby while increasing the population.

Meanwhile, to remove vermin from household bedclothes, a bed sheet made of silver threads may be used, but there is difficulty in washing it, and, due to a high price thereof, it is seldom used in general households. As well, in this bed sheet, there is a difficulty in maintenance, and it does not have functions of removing dust from a bed and preventing dust from dispersing when the user uses the bed.

Therefore, an anti-vermin technique, which can be easily attached to the bedclothes to catch or prevent parasitic vermin on the bedclothes from being brought into contact with a user, and, as well, can remove dust from the bedclothes and prevent dust from dispersing when the user uses the bedclothes, and which is inexpensive and easy to maintain, has been required.

BEST MODE FOR CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION

Hereinafter, the construction and operation of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the attached drawings.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view showing a disposable anti-vermin sheet 1, according to a first embodiment of the present invention. FIGS. 2 and 3 are perspective views showing anti-vermin sheets 1, according to second and third embodiments of the present invention. The first through third embodiments will be explained together herein below.

As shown in FIG. 1, the anti-vermin sheet 1 includes a base sheet 2, an antibacterial layer 3 and an adhesive layer 4 which are applied to a rear surface of the base sheet 1, and a releasable sheet 5. Perforated lines 6 are formed in the anti-vermin sheet 1. FIG. 1 shows both the anti-vermin sheet 1 and bedclothes 9.

The base sheet 2 of the anti-vermin sheet 1 may be treated through a printing process, a gold or silver plating process, an embossing process or a dyeing process. Alternatively, the base sheet 2 may be processed by anion or far-infrared ray treatment. The base sheet 2 may be made of a natural fiber, chemical fiber, a mixture of them, leather, pulp or various kinds of resin.

Furthermore, in consideration of frequent contact with the skin of a user, the base sheet 2 is preferably made of a superfine fiber, rayon or cotton yarns. As well, the base sheet 2 may be made of paper. In the case of resin as the above-mentioned material of the base sheet 2, an antibacterial agent may be added thereto before the base sheet 2 is formed and marketed.

In addition, the base sheet 2 may be dyed various colors according to the individual taste of the user, thus giving the user a sense of security and setting the user's mind at ease.

The lower surface of the base sheet 2 is coated with an antibacterial layer 3. As well, the antibacterial layer 3 may contain an insect repellent, an aromatic agent and an antistatic agent.

The adhesive layer 4 is made of a harmless ingredient and has a circular pattern, a rectangular pattern, a triangular pattern, a longitudinal stripe pattern or a lateral stripe pattern, which is formed by a forming roller. Thus, the base sheet 2, having various adhesive patterns on the rear surface thereof, can be easily adhered to the bedclothes 9.

Meanwhile, in the present invention, an adhesive tape or a button may be used as a means for fastening the base sheet 2 to the bedclothes 9.

The releasable sheet 5 covers the antibacterial layer 3, which is applied to the lower surface of the base sheet 2, and prevents the adhesive layer 4 from being exposed before being used for the bedclothes 9. Furthermore, the releasable sheet 5 is configured such that, when it is desired to use the anti-vermin sheet 1, the releasable sheet 5 can be easily removed from the base sheet 2.

The number of perforated lines 6, which are spaced apart from each other at regular intervals, may be changed depending on the size of the bedclothes 9. According to the intended purpose, the perforated lines 6 may be formed in longitudinal, lateral or oblique directions. Thus, the perforated lines 6 make it possible for the user to easily cut the anti-vermin sheet 1 along the perforated lines 6 using his/her hands into a size and shape suitable for the bedclothes 9.

Meanwhile, the bedclothes 9 are not limited to articles of bedding. In other words, the anti-vermin sheet 1 may be applied to a pillow by changing the shape and size thereof. Particularly, the anti-vermin sheet 1 may be applied to bedclothes for hospitals, which are easily exposed to bacilli and, in addition, can be applied to a sofa or a chair.

To use the anti-vermin sheet 1 having the above-mentioned structure, the user first cuts the anti-vermin sheet 1 along the perforated lines 6, using his/her hands, into a shape and size suitable for desired bedclothes 9. Thereafter, the releasable sheet 5, which has been attached to the rear surface of the base sheet 2, is removed from the base sheet 2. Subsequently, the anti-vermin sheet 1 is adhered to the bedclothes 9.

The anti-vermin sheet 1 may be used as a disposable item or, alternatively, may be used for a long period by changing adhesive strength of the adhesive layer 4. Furthermore, the anti-vermin sheet 1 can be easily disposed of after being used, thus being convenient for the user.

FIG. 2 is a perspective view showing the construction of the anti-vermin sheet 1, according to the second embodiment of the present invention. In the second embodiment, an air mesh sheet 7 is used as a base sheet to provide a cool environment in the summer. FIG. 3 is a perspective view showing the construction of the anti-vermin sheet 1, according to the third embodiment of the present invention. In the third embodiment, an embossed sheet 8 is used as a base sheet. In this case, because gaps are defined between embossments of the embossed sheet 8, adhesive strength of an adhesive surface of the base sheet may be changed depending on the size of the embossments.

FIG. 4 is a perspective view showing the construction of the anti-vermin sheet 1, according to the fourth embodiment of the present invention. In the fourth embodiment, an antibacterial layer 3 is applied to an upper surface of a base sheet 2. Furthermore, the antibacterial layer 3 may contain an insect repellent, an aromatic agent and an antistatic agent. Therefore, in this case, when the user uses bedclothes 9, the effects of the present invention are directly applied to the user.

As well, this structure, in which the upper surface of the base sheet 2 is coated with the antibacterial layer 3 or with the layer containing the insect repellent, the aromatic agent and the antistatic agent, may be applied to the air mesh sheet 7 or the embossed sheet 8.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICABILITY

As described above, the present invention provides a disposable anti-vermin sheet which is easily attached to bedclothes and is able to catch or prevent parasitic vermin on the bedclothes from being brought into contact with a user, and, as well, can remove dust from the bedclothes and prevent dust from dispersing when the user uses the bedclothes, thus protecting the skin of the user, minimizing irritation of the respiratory organs, and helping the user have a good sleep.
