Thank you to all of you who have written and told us how much you enjoy Hankettes! If there is anyone out there who would like to tell us what they think of our products then please contact us.
Thanks to you, the whole family is now using cloth handkerchiefs, instead of paper tissues. Great concept with the box, by the way. I had to instruct my 5-yr old daughter how to not go through several in a row-- she so enjoys pulling them out of there!

"I run a small non-profit store in Victoria BC. We have been carrying Hankettes baby products for just over one year and they have proved very successful. Customers know that everything in our store is purchased with conscious and enjoy the variety of baby products offered. They love the feel and look of the natural fabric and the simple design. The baby wipes are especially popular.
I also use Hankettes baby products and love to give them as gifts, especially for new and expectant mothers. I find people appreciate the high quality as well as the environmental ethic. I only hope that they keep expanding the line to keep up with my growing boy!
The baby bath mitts are the most popular gift item, cute and simple they make great gifts and are in anyone's price range."

" I want to say your organic cotton sheets are the nicest organic sheets we've seen. We bought several sets before I started the business and they are not close to the quality your sheets are.
Thanks so much!"

"Hello! I wanted to share my initial experience with Hankettes to others who may find your site, and hope that it may inspire them to make a purchase. My son started kindergarten in September, and I wanted to be sure to make his lunch packings were all reusable (we never buy paper napkins). When I received my first order of Hankettes I was thrilled because they were perfect! We have used and washed them many, many times, and they are outstanding! The quality is superb, and they look great, and they don't curl in the wash. The Hankettes are still like new and make great lunch box napkins. I'm so glad we found them!
"I bought Hankettes because I wanted a more earth friendly way of dealing with my sniffles from my allergies, but I really became devoted to them when I found how great they were for my sniffles during work outs! They do not fall apart like paper tissues, and they hold up much better than linen hankies. Also they become softer and more absorbent with each washing. I love them!"
"I choose to use high quality products that are free of pesticides, harsh chemicals and additives and that are harmful to our health as well as damaging to the biosphere. I use Hankettes products to remove my make-up, polish my jewelry and clean my glasses. I use them as drawer sachets (with essential oils), and to clean my toddlers' cuts and scrapes. I love them."
"I bought a pocket pack at the Arbour Shop in Ottawa several years ago. We’re down to two hankies now (one went missing). The quality and comforting aspect of the hankies, coupled with the positive environmental impact of using them, make them an obvious choice for me to promote. My husband and I both love them."
"I have sensitive skin, and the chemicals in facial tissues—they use formaldehyde to make them soft—give me a rash. (That chapped area below your nose when you have a cold is probably from the tissues!) I’ve tried a half a dozen different types of hankies, and hankettes are by far the best. They are small enough to fit easily in pocket or purse, and, most important, they are soft enough to be very comfortable, and thick enough to be very absorbent. Once you try these, there’s no going back!"
"I just wanted you to know that I got my package on Saturday and I just LOVE the towels and hankettes !! And thank you so much for the extra hankette, that was really sweet of you to include that. Thanks for the fast delivery too."
"Hi there-I just received my order-I love the quality and softness of your products. The face cloths are wonderful! I was recently diagnosed with rosacea-and needed something that gentle for my face. The baby washcloth ( baby bath mitt ) is great-we can finally-easily-slip a wash cloth in our daughters neck without her barely noticing. The handkerchiefs are so great-I had been using my daughter’s cloth baby wipes until I discovered Hankettes . I even figured out how to fold them so that they actually dispense from the box ! Thank you for the wonderful organic cotton!"
"I LOVE these hankettes!!! They are so soft and gentle on my nose! I bought them mainly because I like to reduce waste wherever possible. I have had nasal congestion throughout my whole pregnancy. I was going through boxes of disposable tissues. But now that I have used the hankettes, I just love them because they feel so nice! I just have to get another box for the first floor of my home. Thank you for making this very excellent product!"
"I am writing to let you know that I love your products. I recently ordered some napkins and tea towels and just love them. They are of excellent quality and I can tell, after just a few times of using them, that they will last forever! And, thanks for including the little handkerchief . It’s a great size; I’ve given it to my 5 year old daughter and she is no longer jealous of MY cloth hankerchiefs ! Keep up the wonderful craftsmanship and expect more orders from me and anyone else I can convince!"
"I bought a few of these tea towels for my own home. My mother visited and started raving over these towels so now, I am buying this set for her birthday. Thanks for the great products!"
"Talk about a great idea that hasn't been done yet. Wash and reuse. Environmentally speaking, it's the right thing to do! Just ask our Capers Family."
"It is very comforting to sell a product which is both eco-friendly and user-friendly."
"We have become a buy it and dispose of it society. Pop-up organic hankies to the rescue!"
