I don’t have a lot of clothes so I try hard to protect the ones I have from stains, tears and shrinkage. I do a pretty good job, but twice in the last three days, while doing dishes, I’ve gotten something on two of my shirts that did NOT come out in the washer, even with pre-treatment. Really? Did I forget how to do dishes while I was without a sink???
So as a result, I’ve started wearing my apron while I do dishes. And that got me thinking. Who says aprons are just for cooking?! There are lots of other times when it might be appropriate to wear an apron. Like when I’m
- Giving the dog a bath
- Cleaning up a mess
- Eating something messy
- Feeding a baby
- Putting on makeup
I think I might even buy a couple more aprons – one for cooking, one for cleaning and one for everything else.
How about you? Do you wear an apron when you cook? Have you ever thought about wearing an apron for other tasks, too?
