They were luxury items of the few that could afford to wipe their noses with lace and now replaced with tissue paper and when used, they'd be put back in the pocket for reuse because they were too expensive to throw away.
So why wasn't there one for wiping ass when we have the tissue paper for that?
Did people not bother with hygiene in areas not on display?

My grandpa used to blow his nose in a paper towel then put it back in his coat pocket, lmao.

And my grandma on the other side of the family still wears a kerchief on her hair when it's windy out or raining. She doesn't blow her nose with it though. It's to like keep her hair lookin good I guess.

I don't get it, what's the point in making your hair look good by hiding it under something?

She only has it on while in transportation. Like if she's walking out to the car or riding in the car. Or protecting it from the elements. Obviously I don't think people care to do this type of thing now days.

BAH! I was hoping for a thread about neckerchiefs.

And there used to be ones for the ass. You didn't put THAT in your pocket afterward though and left it in the lavatory.
