    Although Kleenex is a brand of tissue, because of its popularity, has become the generic term for/synonymous with all "tissue." So, just like when you hear someone ask for a bandaid, Band-Aid is the dominant brand manufacturer that became so popular that the general population asks for a bandaid no matter who the manufactured the medical adhesive strip with a cotton pad in the middle. So, you can ask for kleenex and everyone will know you mean tissue and give you tissue, no matter what brand the tissue comes from.
