Whenever I eat, I usually use at least three napkins. More if I eat finger foods. I hate having, like, sauces and stuff on my hands.

I use as many as I need.

Though honestly, most of the time I just wipe my hands on my pants :oops:

None, usually. If it's a food that's most easily eaten by hand (chicken, spare-ribs) then I'll just wash my hands afterwards.

I pretty meticulous when it comes to food on my hands. I use 1 or 2 napkins. I almost always wash my hands too. I don't like to smell the residue from the food I ate on my hands. For some reason that bothers me.

Usually just one. Two if it's messy or finger food - one napkin on my lap, one next to the plate. It feels really uncomfortable for me to eat anything without a napkin.

As many as they'll give me and more if I can get my hands on them. I wipe my hands, sauce off the edges of the plate, the table before I put my food on it, the edge of the table so I don't get someone's leftover smears streaked across my shirt, fork handles if they get sticky/dirty, my mouth a few hundred times.

I'd ballpark it at 10-15 napkins.

I prefer to eat at home.

Usually one or none, but when I eat ribs, all bets are off.

This, I have to wash my pants anyways and they usually have grosser things than ketchup and cocktail sauce on them (like sweat and motor oil) not to mention I'm fairly good about keeping the mess to a minimum and I avoid saucy chicken wings, ribs, etc.
