We have talked about almost every detail that a style conscious man should consider every day. But today’s discussion is about the thing that not only give a very style conscious impression of you but also tells that you consider management before stepping out of home. Yes that’s your hankie…! Your mom must have developed the habit of checking the presence of handkerchief in your bag before leaving for school. But people think that keeping a hankie is the practice of childhood when our nose used to run as fast and frequently as we used to change girlfriends now. This is a very wrong conception, keeping a hankie is not just to clean your nose, it has numerous functions that helps you in making your clean and caring impression. Here are some most important hankie functions and the ways to carry it in style.
Importance of keeping handkerchief with you:
- To clean the face:
If you are living in deserted land or you have to travel through hot and dusty channels then will you do when sweat sweeps down from your forehead to cheeks? And what will you do when you feel sticky and dusty? A tissue is not enough to help you for the whole day. Hankies are reusable and better absorbent than a tissue.
- Show care to others:
Don’t think that your hankies are reserved for your own use and don’t keep it in pocket when anybody else needed it. Like it gives a very cool and caring impression when your girlfriend is weeping and you offer her your hankie.
- Absorbs your nose flow:
No matter how much you grow old your nose will keep you reminding its presence time to time. Using tissue papers to clean nose flow during flue cause rashes around your nose and intense burn. But a soft hankie not only keep you clean but also absorbs maximum of blows than a tissue.
Yes, this is your bonus, as you can use it as long as you keep it washing and reusing. Because like diaper is better than pamper in absorbance as well as in recycling and reusing, hankies are better than tissues as they can be recycled and reused but tissues aren’t.
- Protect from dust inhalation:
If you have a hankie in your pocket then you will never be afraid of going to any dusty place. Even if you are spores allergic you must have a hankie in your pocket to put it on your nose when you feel allergic and feel difficulty in inhaling impure air.
- How to carry a hankie????
A hankie is a piece of plain cotton cloth. Many ignorant people confuse it with their pocket squares. That’s a major mistake they do with their style and first impression. Pocket squares are the piece of nice silk clothe. They are fancy and used to add fancy details to your dress suit. They are placed in your front breast pocket in a very fancy manner. But hankies are somewhat different, their purpose and use is totally different from pocket squares. You can have simple plain cotton made hankie because they soak more sweat and nose blows. You can use embroidered hankies too that look sophisticated and stylish. You should have at least 2 or 3 hankies and you have to change them daily. Wash it at night and place it to get dry. Iron it properly before use and fold it cleanly before putting it in the pocket. Hankies without ironing and proper folding spoils your image when you take them out of your pocket full of wrinkles.
