"spitting it into a Kleenex"

 Kleenex is a brand of tissue, the name of which is often used generically to mean any paper tissue. Registered to the Kimberly-Clark Corporation in America, Kleenex was the first facial tissue of the Western world, released in 1924 as a way to remove make-up or creams. Only a few years later was it marketed as useful for colds and hay fever, which by the 1930s had become its main use.

Today, the Kleenex brand also covers toilet paper, nappies and paper towels under different trade names such as Huggies and Viva, and the products are sold in over 170 countries around the world.
