How do you use facial tissue while blowing your nose?

Stinkytofu10 Stinkytofu10
I've witnessed a plethora of ways of people using facial tissue. Some sneeze/blow once then throw it away, as if the snot, once discharged, is so contagious they would poison themselves if they blow another time on the same tissue. Others, assuming they have plenty of snot to get rid of, use the same tissue over and over again until it is saturated, before disposing of it. Where do you land on this spectrum?

I'll make it private because I want HONEST answers please!

Once, then no more.
3  (10%)
Twice: blow once, fold, and another time.
17  (55%)
Thrice, because that's the most a tissue should hold.
4  (13%)
Four times, because most tissues are square.
Five times, because I'm thrifty.
1  (3%)
Six times, because it's a waste to throw tissue away before it's saturated.
More than six times: I use a tissue to maximum capacity, leave it out to dry, and it's good to use after a few hours!

I don't use facial tissue, ever.

Fold once, blow, fold again and blow another time and ditch it. The new Kleenex with lotion has a "sneeze shield", it works great!

Just twice, but we usually don't buy the really thick ones so any more would be out of the question. @_@

Blow, fold, blow, toss. Unless my nose is feeling particularly mucusy, in which case just the once.

Depends how big the tissue is. Lol. I always blow and fold it and blow again. If there's room, I use it.

Generally twice, even though I get free TP, paper towels, and kleenex, I still don't like to waste. I cannot stand to see people saturating 1 tissue, or using a hanky in the pocket. It's like, your seriously going to blow your nasty snot all over a cloth hanky, push it back into your pocket, furthermore spreading infection? Gross! lol

I only use them once and then throw it away. I don't want to accidentally get snot on me from previous times. Tissues aren't that overly expensive that I can't afford to do so.
If that was the case, I'd buy hankies so they can be washed to reuse.

I'll use it as many times as I need to during one nasal expulsion, but I don't save it for future uses.
