Image Number 8 for United States Patent #5388597.
An artificial fingernail remover and brush cleaner comprising an upper housing attached to a lower housing, and a container removably attached to the lower housing. A door is sandwiched between the upper housing and the lower housing, and is free to reciprocate, covering and uncovering access to the inside of the container as it does so. A spring urges the door into the closed position, thereby preventing evaporation of the container contents. The door may be retained in the open position by rotating a door handle rigidly attached to the door. The door perimeter incorporates brush notches whereby a brush may be immobilized to soak in the solvent in the container without deforming its bristles.
