My favorite tissue's brand is the Kleenex. I did some research on the internet looking for a background information about Kleenex. In a nutshell, what I learned was that it started in 1924 as a disposable cleansing tissue to remove cold face cream. It was a substitute for the towel, and was seen as a healthier alternative. But many people also used it as disposable handkerchiefs before Kleenex started promoting it as a "sneezing tool". It was in 1930 when it finally took off as the disposable handkerchief product that we know of today. It became very popular with the public and was a big success for the company.
