手帕 handkerchief 汗可去（可以擦去汗水）
- handkerchief:  Handkerchief is a compound formed from hand and the now obsolete kerchief ‘cloth for covering the head’  (what in modern English would be called a head-scarf). This was acquired via Anglo-Norman courchef from Old French couvrechef, a compound of couvrir ‘cover’ and chief ‘head’. The colloquial abbreviation hanky is first recorded in the 1890s.
