Every few years I give a box of handkerchiefs to my grandfather who has carried one on his self for the better part of of 75 years. (he is 90 so i’m guessing he started using a handkerchief in his early-mid teens) Having a handkerchief hands means less paper waste as you can blow twice or more. Once a handkerchief is soiled to a point it shouldn’t be used again you simply toss it in with your white load of laundry. Boxes of handkerchiefs are usually come packaged in 6’s or 8’s so you should have plenty on hand for when you need one.
