Posted in They Invented What? by Jake Ward on January 19, 2011

U.S. Pat. Appl. Pub. No. 2009/0093777:  Aswipe.

 JW Note:  Many thanks to Jeff V. for bringing this application to our attention.  Here, the title truly is “as short and specific as possible”, as required by 37 CFR 1.72 .

What is claimed is:

1. I Robert l. Vilar, claim all rights of ownership: to the Aswipe product that I invented and want to develop and produce. It is a petrolum jelly substance placed on a diposable tissue-like pad that is folded to size (3″ by 2⅞″) and placed into a small vacuum sealed package, that can be kept in a bathroom or easily carried about in a pocket to be opened and used as a gentle lubricant on private rectal and vaginal parts to aid in chapping or soreness in these areas after using the toilet paper and enabling the consumer to apply the jelly-like subsance without getting it all over his/her hands.

This claim is limited to its use as a lubricant. It is not antibacterial or medicated.
