    Plain white cotton. Can be used as a wound dressing if nothing else is available. Dyed ones aren't so good for this.

    Check out a company called Recycled Firefighter, they have a hankie made out of recycled firefighter nomex. Who wouldn't want a fireproof hankie.

    Veteran owned company, USA made.

    Disclaimer: not affiliated with, but I'm a veteran and try to support veteran owned and operated and buy USA made when I can.

    How is that materials for absorbency? I'd think nomex wouldn't be the friendliest either for that nor be the most skin friendly for sensitive skin around the nostrils?

    Not certain in a first hand way, but there are 214 reviews on the product and 202 are a 5 and 12 are a 4. First one I saw was a 5 and said soft absorbant material.

    And I was incorrect on the material, only new nomex is used. I was assuming it was recycled because of so much recycled material used on the other products and the company name.

    I'm hoping to get a pouch ordered tonight and will post something when I get it.

    CLEAN white 100% cotton. No stains, rips or flays. For the same reason your mother insisted on clean underwear.

    I carry a standard red paisley bandanna every day. Purely functional- mostly as a snot rag, sometimes pressed into service as a potholder or, once, as a long load flag for a 12 foot piece of lumber in a 9 foot truck bed.

    Thanks. I'm betting based on what I've seen that the pouch will be high quality!

    Everyday, a bandana. Not bothering to check brand. Pretty sure they are from Walmart. When traveling I have extras in my duffel.

    Most of the nice ones are Hanks by Hank, I did find a guy that sells them on e-bay for $10 shipped that equals HbH’s in fit and finish, the guys name is Boneshaker. All others are just cotton Hanks that have been boiled to soften them up. I have to say looking at them I have more than I thought.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    This is the one fromBoneshaker:[​IMG]
    These are the Cotton ones:

    White cotton 12x12 for me. Usually used most for my 5 and 7 year old daughters :)

    I'm currently looking for larger options.

    I have a few ancient, yet still presentable hankies that belonged to my grandfather that I carry on special occasions.
