A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230312221A1) describes a package dispenser for containing and dispensing stacks of wipes. The dispenser is designed with a bottom wall, top wall, side walls, and end walls that create a storage space for the wipes. The top wall includes a handle and provisions for creating dispensing openings. The stacks of wipes are interfolded and placed in the storage space with the bottom surface resting on the bottom wall and the top surface facing the top wall. The interfolded wipes can be dispensed through the dispensing openings.

The patent also includes additional claims and features for the package dispenser. These include the option for the dispensing openings to be created in the side walls of the package dispenser. The provisions for creating the dispensing openings can consist of material weakenings in the package dispenser. The dispenser can accommodate multiple stacks of interfolded wipes. The top wall of the dispenser can have two overlapping portions, with a two-part handle arranged on both portions. The side walls are formed from overlapping panel end parts, and the package dispenser itself can be made from cardboard or corrugated fiberboard. The interfolded wipes can be made from nonwoven material, such as hydroentangled nonwoven material with cellulosic fibers. The size of the interfolded wipes can be 42x35.5 cm or 63x35.5 cm in a flat, unfolded state. Each stack of interfolded wipes can contain 70 to 120 wipes.

The patent also includes a package blank for forming the package dispenser and a method for assembling the dispenser. The package blank includes various panels and wall portions that are folded and raised to create the dispenser. Adhesive can be applied during the folding process to secure the overlapping portions of the package blank.
