anyone carry a hanky?

I carry one whenever I leave the house, except when I go ride my bike. I have decided to start carrying when I ride my bike too. Anyone here carry when they ride? how do you carry? Fanny pack?

I always carry one since I usually ride with a group. I don't want to accidently blow a snot rocket on a friend.

Yes, mate I also carry a "hanky" . I've carried a farmers bandanna for
decades finding it to useful for way more than blowing my nose. I good
ol' farmers bandanna can be a bandage , a scarf, a sweat rag, etc. so
yes, I carry one always. ( I carry the bandanna anyway I can
incuding tied on the bike somewhere.)

I carried a bandanna for a while for the bugs.
Then I was used to my morning protein snack and left it at home.
I bike year round and my nose is always running. Winter it is the dry air. Summer is allergy season.
Snot rockets are the way to go for efficiency.

Johnny......it seems from the posts thus far this topic will draw either all the unwashed
barbarians or the tolls who just want to smart off. Either way don't look for many sane
responses. It's hard to believe that manners have been eroded this bad but alas it's true.

Carry one but hopefully never use it on a ride. Always carry it up my left sleeve, so it is readily available. Don't like putting it back there once its used though.

I carry a complete outfit of hankies in my trailer along with my supply of LAW rockets. Unlike the ordnance, however, I rarely have to use them.

I keep it in the seat bag now.

I'm a recent convert to hanky. They rock, if soft.

I agree with Stacy.

Snots rockets while bicycling, disposable kleenex indoors.

If that makes us Barbarians, so be it. I'm in good company.

I try to carry a classic white one all the time. It actually bugs me when I forget it.

Bandana in the back pocket of my jeans. I still blow snot rockets while riding, though.

Small pack of tissues in my rack-pack.
Two cotton handkerchiefs, in my fanny pack and in the little compartment at the back of the rack-pack. Used mostly for wiping sweat and getting chain grease off my hands.

A "hanky"? You aren't from Pittsburgh are you?

Bandana in the back pocket, always. It was a habit I got into during high school.

I ride with a handlebar bag with 3 bandannas (among other things) - one for wiping sweat off of my face, one for snot, and one for bike maintenance/chain wipe-down, etc...

Um? Okay?

I am not a toll!
OooOoOooO! Wait! I cost 50 cents to drive through.

What exactly does manners have to do with snot rockets? It's not like I launch one off in a pace line. *shrugs*
Actually, I wait until there is no one around. That would pretty much be all the time on my commute.

As for unwashed barbarian, I shower, shave my head legs and face, dress nicely, brush my teeth, etc
Could you explain how I can clean up better? I really must know!

The last time I had hankies they were tied over my head and face like a ninja so I could play with my friends with our pot metal toy samurai swords. After that, my mom never did buy me anymore.
