I have a nice pile of 8" square flannel diaper wipes I bought to use as nose wipes. I love them, they are so soft and gentle. Since they are small, when you have a nasty cold, you are not carrying around a big hankie, as they are more of a one use thing (and then wash).
But how to store them. I have them folded in half and in a pile, but I need some sort of container to hold the pile and then hold the dirty ones. It would be great if the dirties could be a little out of view.
Right now they pile up until they get thrown in the bedroom or kitchen hampers.

Professional Cloth Diaper at Diaper Lab in Boston (ask me about laundry)
I have all of my "hankies" (mostly cut up tshirts and receiving blankets) in a basket on the counter. I don't bother folding them because we are constantly grabbing from it. I then throw then in the pail with the family cloth. If I didn't do family cloth I think a good place would be a old icecream container or small trash can or the like under the sink or in the laundry room (if it is in a close location)
Hope that helps : )

SouleMama had sewn these very cute and useful bags for handkerchiefs:
This looks like a very good option, as the bags take a minimal amount of place -- just a hanger inside a closet.
