Handkerchief Etiquette

Believe it or not there are actual rules to handkerchief usage. Follow these simple rules so you are not guilty of a hanky faux pas!

1. First, always start the day with a clean, ironed and neatly folded handkerchief. After the handkerchief is used, it is acceptable to stuff the handkerchief back into a handbag or pocket without being folded.

2. Cover your mouth and nose with your handkerchief when you sneeze. If you really want to be proper, give your handkerchief a little shake before bringing it up to your face.

3. It is extremely chivalrous for a man to offer a lady his handkerchief, however he should only do so when the handkerchief is clean and unused.
