The idea of an apron might seem rather quaint to some of us, bringing to mind black and white images of women pulling cookies from gleaming new ovens. But for a simple piece of clothing, an apron can really come in quite handy! Do you wear one while cooking?
Aside from keeping our bodies protected and our clothes (mostly) free of food, aprons are useful for drying hands, opening jars, and wiping up a quick spill. They also come in handy when the oven mitts have all mysteriously disappeared and you need to grab something from the oven!
Of course, we usually remember to don our apron right after we've wiped floury hands on our jeans or splashed soup on ourselves!
What about you?
