    Tissues anyone?

    I know this is a random word to want to know, but what is "a tissue", as in the kind you blow your nose on, in Russian?

    Thanks

    Generally, "a tissue" is "салфетка", but the kind you use to blow your nose is usually called "носовой платок" or just "платок".
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.
