NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With the Flu Epidemic hitting America like a tsunami, handkerchief maker My Hanky Inc. has been working around the clock to fulfill orders. People everywhere are looking for a good quality handkerchief that can help prevent the spread of the flu.
"People are doing anything they can to either contain or prevent the spreading of the Flu in their family," says Frank Marino, President of My Hanky, Inc. "Many people today have stopped using handkerchiefs years ago because of their harshness and nonabsorbent quality; they are all paper thin, made in China, and abrasive to a sensitive nose."
The flu epidemic continues to worsen, and has killed thousands of Americans including 23 children as of January 30, 2013. Emergency rooms around the county are overwhelmed with flu patients. Health professionals say that while the vaccine will prevent the flu in a certain number of people, nothing can replace the importance of personal hygiene. Chronic coughing and sneezing from someone that has the flu is a main catalyst for contracting the disease. By using a great quality handkerchief, you can help protect yourself and your loved ones from catching and spreading the Flu.
Our phones are ringing off the hook and our website is buzzing as we continue to receive more orders as a direct result of the Flu epidemic. People are frantically searching for a superior handkerchief to protect them and their families from this awful disease. We are working seven days a week, around the clock and shipping all orders the same day to meet the demand.
MyHanky's are hypoallergenic, and the softest, fluffiest and most absorbent hankies in the world. They are made in the USA from 100% American grown Pima Cotton which is known as "The Cashmere of Cotton." They are noticeably softer than conventional hankies, yet durable and resilient. "The individual fibers of Pima Cotton are 95% longer than conventional cotton. This, combined with our exclusive SOFT CLOUD™ textile softening process, takes softness to a whole new level," Marino notes. "No more chafed noses during cold and flu season. No more torment from handkerchiefs that feel like sandpaper. The result has to be felt to be believed," Marino says.
Product samples are available to members of the media upon request.
