I'm not trying at all to be snotty (pun intended) but I could not help laughing at your title! (reusable kleenex ) I love handkerchiefs! I like the old fashion cotton ones with pretty embroidery! You can usually find them super cheap at thrift stores.

Re: Reusable kleenex's. Tell me what you know....

I loooooved cloth wipes for everything! Just be careful using them while sick. My son started with a common cold (10) and was using them. He ended up developing a WICKED case of Staph infection. It might not be that common, but I stopped using them after that for that very reason These were specifically used for noses only, so there shouldn't have been that many germs you wouldn't think

That was my first thought I was like"you mean handkerchiefs?" Lol I'm the same way with unpaper towels though we call those dish towels and they've been around since forever. As far as the cloth Kleenex goes I would think any cloth wipe would work...

I run every re-usable load of tissues through with oxygen bleach and a touch of tea tree oil for this reason Better to be safe than sorry!

Re: Reusable kleenex's. Tell me what you know....

try cotton velour baby wipes, we use our cloth wipes on noses. We stick them right in the wetbag or kitchen wetbag. No issues
