Zero waste illness. You’ll need 10-15 large handkerchiefs if you have a severe cold.

Much uses. Such versatile… These handkerchiefs have traveled far and wide. I’ve used them for neck/head scarves, bakery treat holders, fruit bags, wipes, leftovers and more recently… erm… snot rags. 🤧🙃

Now that I’ve been fully sick, I realise how understocked we are. You’ll need 10-15 large handkerchiefs if you have a severe cold. Unfold and wash on a warm cycle. If you don’t want to wash a set each night, get more. To avoid a red nose, favour silk or softer fabrics.

I found these way better than tissues because they are softer, don’t deteriorate and I no longer have a gross pile of tissues surrounding me at the end of a sick day. I don’t have as much of a red nose this time around.
