Just in time for allergy season: the best tissues (of 12 tested) for sneeze control.
Kleenex Lotion (starting at $2.63 for 75 tissues; Yahoo! Shopping)
Thick, absorbent in lab tests, and rated "very soft" by testers, these earned our highest overall score (by a nose over other Kleenex versions). Messy-sneezer alert: Wet strength was just average.
For Tender Types
Kleenex Ultra Soft (starting at $2.63 for 75 tissues; Yahoo! Shopping) Prefer lotion-free tissues? Testers rated these as softest. Our lab trials found them to be super absorbent, with "good" to "excellent" dry strength but so-so wet strength.

Puffs Ultra ($2.34 for 124, amazon.com) At about two cents apiece, these non-lotioned tissues scored very well on absorbency, dry and wet strength, and softness. (Note: In the cube, they're pricier per tissue than our premium picks.)
