Set of six soft cloth hankies in 100% organic cotton knit fabric. I love this fabric, it feels so much nicer than non-organic cotton. The cotton plant is traditionally grown with mind-boggling amounts of pesticides, one can only imagine that some of those pesticides linger on the fibers (and our planet!). The superior feel of these organic cotton hankies is undeniable. You'll love them!

Are you tired of buying boxes of facial tissues for your family? Are you tired of red, raw, noses during cold season? Here is your solution! These soft, cotton handkerchiefs are just what you need to make it through cold season. They are so soft and so absorbent that they blow the disposable competition out of the water. Just try it, and you'll never go back to paper. This listing is for six perfect cloth hankies, just the right size (about 7x7 inches). We find this size perfect for our needs, but contact me if you feel that a different size would be more perfect for you. I will make some custom hankies just for you.

They are made from two layers of new 100% cotton baby rib knit. The fabric has been pre-washed and pre-shrunk. The edges have been securely sewn together with a serger.

This lovely fabric is a natural color. They are very soft, you will love these. I also have listings for sets of 12 or 24. If you would like to order more than 24, please send me a conversation so I can set up a special listing for you.

In our home, we quit buying facial tissues (Kleenex) as soon as it dawned us that we could use washable hankies to blow our noses. It was very liberating to eliminate yet another paper product from the shopping list. Even better, there were no more last-minute trips to the store for more Kleenex when everyone is sick, the tissue boxes are empty, and the garbage cans are overflowing with used tissues (eeeww!). Instead, we have a collection of soft cotton hankies in a basket. Used ones get thrown in the dirty clothes (with towels, kitchen rags, etc.). When clean, we simply stack them back in the hanky basket as we are folding the laundry.

When we first switched to cloth, we stacked folded men's handkerchiefs in our basket, but we found these were too large and thin for our liking. A better hanky to use was a cut-up cotton T-shirt, always nice and soft, never wrinkly. But some members of the family complained that they were still too thin. Make that two layers, and then you have the perfect hanky!

If you are ordering this as a gift, don't forget to add a reusable gift bag to your cart: https://www.etsy.com/listing/250361857/custom-reusable-fabric-gift-bag-add-on?ref=shop_home_active_1

Try collecting a whole basketful to have available any time a nose needs wiping. They are so soft and gentle, your nose will thank you for the change. You’ll find it helpful to place a bucket or waste basket nearby that is designated for dirty laundry. When ready to wash, simply throw them in the washer and dryer with any load of laundry (they don’t take up much room). We like to wash our with the bath towels or kitchen towels, and they are always washed and dried on hot temperatures.

All items come from a smoke-free and pet-free home. I can also combine orders with my other shop, check it out for some great reusable baby items: http://www.etsy.com/shop/bundlesofjoy
