Whenever we go out we always make sure that we have the appropriate clothing, footwear and accessories with us. Nowadays, with rapid growing malls that has restrooms that gives you pocket tissues or napkins and nearby shops that sells it. Do you still bring a hanky with you? Knowing for a fact that your pockets are already full with your mobile phone, mp3 and a wallet. Sad to think but is there still a room for your old pal "The Handkerchief". I noticed this when I purchased my i-pod. There was a time that I went out and as I was preparing I figured out that there is no room left for my hanky anymore in my pants. Since I was a kid I make sure that I have this nice piece of clothe wherever I go because you'll never know what will happen..like mucus or sweat. Nowadays, it seems that its becoming old skool. Even my wife and friends dont bring a hanky anymore because according to them you can easily purchase tissues anywhere nearby.

I am not fan of bringing handkerchief with me. Instead tissue or wet wipes is inside my bag. I cant put anymore hanky because my bag is full of make ups, cellphone, wallet, ipod and even mouthwash lol..If i will bring hanky with me and just have it in my hand..i will just lost it. haha..besides tissues are easily to buy and then you can just throw it away after using.

I do bring handkerchief with me whenever I go out. I can't stay long over the heat of the sun, I'll be sweating a lot. Also I used my hanky to wipe something on my face, like excess oils due to the messy day. I don't just use napkins, I'm not comfortable to those. Every time I go out, I always makes sure I have my hanky with me.

I don bring handkerchief anymore, i just bring tissue instead of that. I find it wasting my money for i always lost my hankerchief were ever i go. I keep on buying and buying but still i lost it. Now tissue is more affordable to me and after use i just traw it away.

I don't bring handkerchief but this dates even to before. Never had the knack for bringing one. I'd usually bring tissue. But now it's tissue and wet ones. There's always a store near buy where I could buy.

No, I keep some tissues or clean leftover napkins in my pocket incase I need to blow my nose, or clean something up. I can just throw the thing out when I am done with it, and I don't need to carry germs or dirt around iwth me. I also have less laundry that way. LOL

I think carrying a handkerchief is just good etiquette. Plus I think it's fun to have collection - it's almost a hobby for me. There's really some neat onesout there. Check out http://www.elegantlinenspc.com/handkerchiefs.htm for some great choices.

I still do. It's funny cause I heard this same question from the movie my sassy girl that I've just watched last week. I understand why she asked that but still for me it's great to always carry a handkerchief with you when you go out. By the way I both have a handkerchief and pocket tissues with me when I go out.

It is an old habit that I have. I would check my purse before I leave home to make sure I bring a hanky with me and I also bring tissues and wet wipes, in case I forget to bring a hanky. :)
