The Secret Behind the Handkerchief

Seriously, can someone tell me how handkerchief works???

I see those people with handkerchief wipes almost everything with it. @@

From face to hands to mouth to goo to face again, then over the head, the arms, the armpits… and God knows where.

There’s a saying that each side of the handkerchief has its own purpose but it’s just a rumor..

Can someone enlighten me please.. >.<

    I used to bring a handkerchief to school. Mainly for sweat…though sometimes I had to use it when I sneezed. But after that I didn’t dare to use it any more… So in the end I stopped using it for sneezing :P

    Hey, you wrote “wipe your sweat” twice instead of “wipe your mouth”.

    hahaha thanks for remind me :D

    wah then if sneeze in the morning then cant use again

    Do you mean. “wipe your mouth with it” rather than having 2 subtitle of “wipe your sweat with it”?

    I have no idea how handkerchief works. I used to put it in my pocket and bring it back nicely when I was in primary. I still prefer tissue paper.=X

    Actually I believe that one should have with them both a handkerchief and some tissues. The tissues should be used for nasty stuffs like wiping sweat, nose jelly XP, mouth etc. But handkerchiefs (as i see it) should be the one being used when it has to do with another person(a girl). Eg. Offer a lady friend yr handkerchief if she is wet from the rain. And from what I’ve read, gentlemen use it to wipe lipstick mark on their face. But nowadays this kind of thing happens in the comics and not so irl. Like if you offer a handkerchief to some1 they won’t accept it lol and the gentlemen’s code I mentioned above is an old fashioned one(not many wear so thick lipsticks anymore). But even so, there are a few that still carries a handkerchief around for those reasons.

    I think girls no longer accept the offer d, probably they wil think as how i draw it XD

    I never used hanky, but once my hanky-using friend *showed* how he used it to do all that you. You have to have a big enough hanky, and fold it twice, this must never be opened until you wash it. Another two fold will determine which side you’ll use to wipe your sweat, hands, mouth etc. But he never use it to wipe hingus though.
    Notes: the hanky must not have symmetrical pattern on any axis.
