Soft Flannel Hankies
I realize cloth hankies will gross some of you out. Sorry!
But as someone who often has a sniffly nose, I can testify that these are so much softer and kinder to my poor red and peeling nose than disposable tissues! I still use Kleenex regularly but reach for the cloth ones when I have a cold or allergies.
I cut random squares of thrifted flannel and then hemmed the edges. There's no need to be a perfectionist about this project, they are hankies, after all. This was a quick little after supper project.
I wash these the same as I do my cloth napkins: by throwing them in with a load of towels and washing in hot water.
While not my primary reasons, using cloth hankies is also a green and frugal practice!
