What’s a fellow to do???

A couple of weeks ago, my wife and I were invited on separate occasions to some very nice homes for get togethers with friends on one evening and relatives the next.
The homes are beautiful and impeccably furnished and the owners were outstanding hosts.
I tell you this because I found myself in a situation which is not new to me and I probably would not have thought anything of it had it not occurred two days in a row.
On both evenings, when I washed my hands in the candle lit bathroom, I was confronted with beautiful, plush towels draped artistically over the towel racks. I felt as if I was in the middle of a Thomas Kinkade painting and there was no way I was going to dry my hands on these obviously expensive tapestries.
I used the back of my pants to get most of the water off and air dried the remainder.
So my question is this: Is that the socially acceptable thing to do??

    I dry my hands on a wad of toilet paper. Or blow on my hands until I hyperventilate, then faint. When you awaken, your hands are usually dry, but dirty again, from rolling around on the bathroom floor.

    Couldn’t resist commenting on this one. I grab one of the obviously expensive tapestries, which will be washed the next day no matter what, and dry my hands.
