    One of the most common, based on brand, is kleenex.

    In what use, though?  Kleenex is a common synonym, if not the dominant term.  Much like aspirin or tylenol for acetylsalicylic acid and acetaminophen.   There are a number of products that are powerfully associated with a brand name to the extent that the brand name is the word used for its generic counterpart.  Facial tissues are one.  Some places even use "Hoover" to mean a vacuum cleaner.
