Upon further investigation I found The Hanky Book. I plan to buy or make one of my own at some point, but I’m still skeptical about whether the rest of the book will stay dry after one use. I found a few more on Etsy, but they weren’t finished as nicely as The Hanky Books.
Have you said goodbye to single use tissues? What do you use instead?
