#2: How many hankies do you need?
Apparently, when asked, "How much money is enough?", John D Rockefeller answered, "Just a little bit more!"
It makes me feel very Rockefeller when trying to answer the question, "How many hankies do you need?" In my opinion: not enough! But don't mind me.
Seriously, from question #1, I would say at least two a day. Depending how frequently you do wash them, perhaps 8 to 15 would be a good start.
The husband has enough to last a month. No kidding! Don't forget, you need at least two while the rest are being washed.
You might also wish to consider whether or not to co-ordinate colours with your outfit. We have different weights of hankies for different seasons as well.
