Kleenex Cover

Something I don’t think I ever understood: the concept of the Kleenex box cover. Even a $30 model that looks like a strange Tiffany-mosaic combination.

I find nothing wrong with tissues, Kleenex or otherwise. Tissues are handy little devices that enable people to clear out their noses, remove excess makeup, or wipe away tears. You know the tears – the ones your friends will have after they see this thing in your bathroom.

Tissue boxes are nothing to be ashamed about, people. They’re getting better looking, overall, and match just about any decor. Even if they don’t match your decor, well, you can always redecorate your bathroom around your tissue box.

Fess up: do you use tissue box covers? Why?

We have a metallic one for our bathroom that matches our toothbrush holder, etc... otherwise, we generally don't use them.

BTW -- the first link seems to be a dead-end.

I think tissue box covers are on par with toilet lid covers as far as pointlessness is concerned. My grandparents have a crocheted one like in that link, though. It's scary.

I don't use Kleenex's I use toilet paper...(I buy the soft kind "cottonelle") - quite frankly I think Kleenex boxes are designed to capture dust! - Think about the logic behind it - and you'll agree I'm certain! - Lizard

a clear plastic cover displays the boutique box design and keeps the box from lifting when the tissue supply gets to the end

I'm looking for a Kleenex cover that looks like a stack of books? I've seen them,but where? I have bad allergies & don't like the box lying around in the den but have to keep them close!

It'd be great if the Ping was your Kleenex Cover Resource.

Yes, there is a tissue box cover for every one! I have designed over 30 different patterns to cover a tissue box. You make them out of fabric. People love to give them as gifts, and you can laugh at them!

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
