Everytime we go out, handkerchief is something that we should not forget. I am the type of person who always have my handkerchief in my hand and I seldom place it in my bag or in my pocket. I don't know why but it's been my habit eversince. I don't feel comfortable if I don't have my handkerchief with me. For me, it is a must have.

yes i agree that handkerchief should never be forgotten by us. we must carry it around with us because it will protect us from dust particles and such. also it can protect us from communicable diseases such as cough and ptb. plus it will wipe the sweat out of our dirty faces to remove the sebum and prevent the microorganisms from causing bursts and pimples in our faces. well me too. i cannot go anywhere without my hanky!. god knows id be lost without it.. see it is also my security blanket and it can also cover my face and let me pretend to wipe my face so that they cannot see me blush or something. i place it in my hand because my hands are sweaty. like you it is a must have for me.. gosh!.

Well, I carry tissues in my purse or pocket. You are correct, they are a must have, especially this time of year. It's been in the 20's and 10's here, so everytime I step from the car to a building my noise will instantly drip for a minute or two, yuck. Any way the same with my girls. So it's a must have.

I totally agree with you. . it's like a big loss to me when i go out and find out sooner that i forgot to bring one. . My hanky's always in my pocket or in my bag either way.

When I was in India I had the habit of carrying a handkerchief. In one hand I had my cellphone and in the other my handkerchief..lol. After coming to the US I didn't feel the need to carry one since anywhere you go, we are provided with hand tissues.

I know people have this kind of habit to take the handkerchief, in my memory, I just take it when I am in school. Now, the people always take the paper handkerchief, of cause it is waste and will make the forest has been cutted. but it is convient and never need to wash it. I just take the paper when I am go out, it is enough,after I use it , I will left it into garbage box.
