I remember having handkerchiefs when I was a kid. Everyone had them then. I don't even know if tissues were available yet. I learned to iron by ironing my dad's handkerchiefs when I was eight or nine years old. Now I'm lucky to remember top put tissues in my pocket. At home I have a box of tissues in every room. But when I go out I try to remember to carry a little packet of them in a pocket.

yeah! I always do just like what vilama santos said a famous actress and politician here in the philippines "handkerchief is like your protector and your cover to all enemies" . I feel that same way to, like if I want to cover my eyes because I wnat to cry or if there are lots of polluted air or if I too shy... etc.

I have never used a handkerchief. When I blow my nose I always use a tissue. Usually I use several tissues. I always thought that if I used a handkerchief I would only be able to use it once and then it would be dirty. So I stick to using tissues.

I only carry tissue paper with me these days. It's been a really long while since I las used a handkerchief. I feel that it's more hygienic to use tissue paper than to reuse a handkerchief. So that's what I prefer to do. Tissues can be used just once and then thrown away. Then I can just take a brand new piece when I need to. I definitely prefer tissue paper for hygiene reasons.

I don’t have any handkerchiefs in my pocket but I’ll have tissues always with me. I only bring along with me one or more handkerchiefs when I have a running noise. Using tissues will make my noise even most serious as my noise is quite allergic when having a cold.

i don't have any handkerchief but i bring along a pocket tissue, actually i'm trying to make it a habit. i tend to forget most of the time though. there was once when i suddenly developed a cold and i needed a tissue so badly but i didn't have any and i was on the train at that time and couldn't wait to get to my destination. from that day onwards, i vow to never leave the house without a pocket tissue in my handbag ever again:P

i always bring a piece of hankerchief with me wherever i go. there are times when i lost it or maybe have dropped it somewhere. but i continue on binging along a handkerchief with me. here in the philipppines when we go out, there's too much pollution from the vehicles. so, whenver travelling, i cover my nose with my handkerchief especially when i am riding a public utility vehicle.

i dont carry handkerchiefs but i always carry tissues in my bag when i am going out. practically every day without fail i start sneezing so tissues are really a must for me. it gets annoying but theres not much i can do as i am allergic to dust, amimals and also the pollen in the air makes me sneeze
