From the Forums: Tissue v. Handkerchief

jocffman wants your opinion:

With disposable you are obviously using resources. Most of the disposable tissues are very likely virgin pulp based, and of course used once and disposed of....With cloth handkerchiefs, you use a lot less resources as the items can be used more than once, and are washable. However... to properly sanitize these items they should be washed seperately in hot water in order to kill the germs and bacteria that are abundant in them after use.

Which do you prefer? Join the conversation.

In case we can sway you, here's the case for handkerchiefs.
