Consider taking handkerchiefs on day hike

Handkerchiefs are just as useful as bandanas, so long as you don’t use them for their intended purpose of blowing one’s nose.

The wet wipes and tissues certainly won’t be quite as messy as a handkerchief and can be put in a re-sealable plastic bag as garbage.
