Growing up I was taught that after blowing your nose you put the tissue in the toilet and flush it. You DO NOT put it in the wastebasket. That just gross, imo. When I got married my husband put his in the trash and insists most people do it that way. I finally trained him out of it but his whole family does it that way. Now my roommate does it to occasionally. Is it just me, or is that really really nasty?

Maybe that's why my Mom taught everyone that. I had 10 siblings growing up the same time as me.

Quoting momto2crazykids:

I flush them to get rid of the germs, if I throw them in the trash, I worried that the kids might touc them accidentally when they throw something away

What do you think the waste basket is for?! It's fine either way. Nasty shit goes in to the trash can one way or another. I don't think boogie tissues is any more gross...

I don't usually blow my nose or sneeze in the bathroom.

We have a box of tissues and a trash at the computers, both DH and ds2 have bad allergies

Depends on where i blow it. 

If I'm in any other room of the house besides the bathroom I throw it away. If I'm in the bathroom, I will flush it.

Just you.  Throw it away.  No need to flush unless you wipe your heiny with it too!
