Chapter 21. Business dining > Using your napkin

Using your napkin

Using your napkin properly is as important as using your utensils. Soon after you sit down, open your napkin and place it in your lap. There is no need to shake your napkin. Simply unfold it. Regardless of what you are eating, your napkin should not be tucked into your collar or placed anywhere other than in your lap.

When needed, pat your lips with the napkin, rather than using a “washing” motion. Leave the napkin in your lap during the meal until you’re ready to leave or until your hosts signal that the meal is over by laying their napkins on the table.
