Abstract:
A towelette product is provided which includes a stack of flexible towelettes (12), a refill package (22) for storing the towelettes and a cover housing (2) surrounding the refill package. The refill package has deck (24) and floor (26) walls in parallel relationship to one another. An aperture in the deck allows access and egress of individual towelettes an is circumscribed by a rigid mouth (30) with a coupling structure (32). The cover housing is formed with a roof (4) on an upper surface and an open mouth (6) along a lower edge. A dispensing port of the roof is defined by a rigid engagement wall (14) directed downward towards the open mouth and engageable with the coupling structure of the rigid mouth in a sealable relationship to prevent moisture from transferring therebetween. Only a single seal is necessary to both join together refill and cover housing and serve as a towelette dispensing orifice.
