This wiki has been updated 13 times since it was first published in April of 2020. When you find yourself battling the flu, a cold, or allergies all year round, you definitely need a good, strong tissue to take care of your runny nose, and softness is also a must for your delicate skin. With so many options available, we narrowed the choices down to a select few that are cushioned, absorbent, and affordable, as well as some that are lotion-infused for added comfort. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

May 29, 2020:

Even when cold and flu disappears, along comes allergy season, so there is always a reason to keep tissues on hand. Instead of using paper towels or toilet paper to wipe your nose, using facial tissues are a much better option. There are lots of choices, from common name brands, like Kleenex Trusted Care, there is also a wide range of lesser-known brands that offer comparable softness, strength, and value.

If you love the silky feeling of lotion-infused tissue on your nose offered by Puffs Plus, then Solimo with Lotion is a comparable choice, and it is made from fibers that come from responsibly-sourced trees, and it is more budget-friendly of the two.

If softness and absorbency are the top factors on your list of needs, consider Presto Ultra-Soft, which is a 3-ply selection where most other brands are 2-ply. An economical choice, ideal for schools and businesses where tissues are used at a high rate, is Georgia Pacific Envision. For cold and flu season, Kleenex Anti-Viral is an ideal selection because it contains ingredients in its middle layer that may kill some these viruses.

Winner Soft and Dry is a unique choice because you can use it as a dry tissue, or you can get it wet, and use it just like a wet wipe. It can also be washed out 2-3 times and used again, thanks to its strength. Regardless of which tissue you ultimately choose, don't forget to grab a tissue box cover to make your box match your home's decor.
