I keep seeing stuff on forums about the guys who never leave their house without one of these things and I'm curious?

The concept to me seems absolutely disgusting, and while I'll freely admit to being a bit of a germaphobe this just goes above and beyond. Is a hold over of old timey stuff where people think it's classy or what? To me it's about as white trash as anything I can think of so is there a reason for these disgusting rags full of germs and bacteria stuffed in pockets?

There was a time when people didn't waste money on paper products. There was no paper napkins and paper towels. And you couldn't always run to or find a bathroom to get TP. If you needed to wipe anything (face, hands, nose) you just used your hanky and threw it in the hamper when you got home. No big deal. Few years back, almost everyone carried a handkerchief.  

Also, do you think germs and bacteria show up after you blow your nose? You know that shit is inside your head, right now. Right?

<edit> There is more bacteria 1 inch below your chicks snatch than is EVER in your nose. Think that one over....

Wipe your fingerprints off the gun before you drop it?

Clean your glasses?

Offer it to a lady in distress?

Use it to pick something up when you aren't carrying surgical gloves and you really don't want to touch the object?

Diversionary piece of cloth?

Distress or truce signalling device?

Emergency bandage?

Emergency fire air filter?

Etc, etc, etc. It's like what can bandanas be used for........such as three of them making a terrific emergency halter top.

I have allergies like a mother fucker, I also use snuff so ya I have one or two on me at all times while out and about.

Also much easier on the strolls and skin as papper products tear up the skin.

I like having a kerchief, for wiping sweat if nothing else, usually I carry a large Neckerchief (Bandana) but folder in my back pocket, in a pinch if it gets windy and dusty out I can tie it around my face (Do this alot out hunting and on the motorcycles) in a pinch it also will make a touniquet, sling, or bandage

Daily carrier. I can't tell you how many times it's saved my ass, or someone else's.

I'm guessing OP doesn't work with his hands.  If you think snot on a rag is disgusting, you'd hate the flight line.  Also, when my nose runs in the woods, I don't take a box of tissues out with me.  When I work outside, I don't let snot run down my face. It's pretty basic, really.  I do grimy, nasty things on a daily basis: I never once worried about my snotty handkerchief.

You probably meant to post in this thread.

I buy mine at Hobby Lobby. They come in Woodland, Desert, and other nice patterns. I also have some Mossy Oak I picked up at the local feed store. I also have basic red and blue. I do not know, nor give a fuck about the "Hanky Code,"  For I, EDC: a bandana, lighter, knife, 1911,and spare mags.
I present myself like an apex predator and radiate awesomeness and purity of essence. Woman sense my power and are attracted to it.

But seriously, as Snow said earlier, there are 10,00 things a bandana is good for. Probaly the least used of these is "snot rag."  I use them for head bands, face masks, sweat wiper, glass cleaner, bandage, sling, gun rag, you name it b

As for the snot, I sniff that up my nose and swallow it.  I don't want to waste precious bodily fluids.

I have bad allergies and work in a hot, dusty environment. Kleenex doesn't do well in a sweaty pocket, nor does it clean sweat, or dust from your face. Like previous posts mentioned, it is primarily to clean my face, snot rag as a last resort. Have you ever had snot running down your face, and nothing but your shirt to wipe it with? I have, that's why I always carry a bandanna or handkerchief. It has also been used to tie up bleeding fingers, cover my head in the sun and face when dust is blowing.

It's a great sweat rag, if you are getting those little beads of sweat on your brow during a hot day, its nice to be able to wipe that off and not have it run down your face.
I'm not going carry around a Giant towel or an extra T-shirt over my shoulder like...some people...

I keep a nice handkerchief in my back pocket!

It also comes in handy for a few other things if needed too.

I've always been drippy and sneezy because of alergies so I always carry one.
