before i used to buy tissue because i like the smell. =) but sometimes i do not like it because i cannot use it to wipe my sweat because it would surely left some tissu pieces in my face, sometimes without my knowing. so now i use handkerchiefs. which is better actually.

Normally paper tissue. Handkerchiefs are not our normal thing. They once were in my family and some were really pretty. Some where even monogrammed. In fact my Father that is nearing 80 years old still uses handkerchiefs. In fact our paper tissue tends to be toilet paper.

for blowing my nose, I prefer tissues. A handkerchief is a nice decoration in a man's suit pocket, but not for use. I find the thought of using a handkerchief and then putting it back in my pocket pretty gross. I'd rather just be able to throw it away like a tissue.

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 use kleenex. Handkerchiefs just totally gross me out, but I guess it would save money using them instead of kleenex.

I always use paper tissue because it's easier to use as it's disposable. I used to bring handkerchiefs around with me in the past, but I tend to lose them and they have to be washed all the time. When I was in the Philippines, there are days when the air is so polluted and the streets dusty, so I would bring a facetowel with me. For me, it's more preferable than a handkerchief. I also think that the use of handkerchief has something to do with practice and culture as well. Happy myLotting!

I prefer the paper tissue, because I think that is more hygienic.

I like the paper towlels the best. I think it is good that you just use it in trow it away. What is the deal with walking around with your own mucus in your pocket or purse? No, paper ones for me. I like the kleenexes with balm the best. No red noses.

Being an old fashioned person I use fabric handkerchief and find it more convenient.
