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.

pocket tissue - bring along a pocket tissue if you don't have a handkerchief! hehe
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 don't use handkerchief, but sometimes when I'm sick and my nose is all wet, I use carry a bag of tissues with me. And I have a bag in the car too.

I am not used to bringing hankies with me. I bring tissues all the time rather than hankies because I always have the tendency to lose one. lol :)

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.

Handkerchiefs are one of some the things that never miss in my bag.I take them alwys with me and all my friens know that I have them so if they haven't hankerchief ask to me directly because know that is impossible that I don't have anyone.

I used to use it when I was younger. But nowadays, I use tissue. Tissue is relatively cheap, cleaner and neater. :P

I always have a hankerchief with me since i have sweaty hands. I always need soemthing to hold to absorb it. If not, il be tempted to wipe it off my jeans. And yes, it is that bad. To the point where it drips from hands :P
