I use hankies, I think they are much better than tissues but as with a lot of things there are drawbacks. One being that they need to be washed then stored. And some people iron them but I am not one of those people. Unless I have a cold I just throw them in with the rest of the wash and line dry in the sun. Or if it is a wet week they might be on the line being rinsed by the rain until they are dry. And of course, they aren't used every day but I do have 2 or 3 with me at at any given time. They are good for other things too, like wiping sticky hands, using as a wipe if some public loo has no paper...lots of things. But, when they are clean and waiting to be used again they do need storing. Up until now I have just had them folded and tucked down the side in my knickers drawer. It's worked, up to a point. After a while the drawer gets messy and the hankies get lost. With my new found get organised mindset I'm wanting to find things more easily, all the time...With this in mind I thought that I could put the hankies in a small bag so they were less likely to get lost in the drawer. Unfortunately the small bag that would have been *perfect* was decluttered and donated to Vinnies. I was too tight to buy it back yesterday when I was down there so today I went looking for something else to use. And found something suitable which shows that I didn't really need the other one after all.
