Battling With My Apron

Battling with my Apron

I wear an apron every time I cook.  I do it because I don’t have a lot of clothes and I’m a messy cook.  But my apron and I don’t always get along.

My current apron has very thin ties. I like that because they’re light and I’m kind of freaky about things I wear – too much weight (like layers, for example) makes me feel claustrophobic.

Unfortunately, the thin ties get tangled easily. Or maybe it’s just me. But when I untie the apron, about half the time I get the strings in a knot and have to struggle to get free from the apron.

I’m embarrassed to admit this, but a while back, I couldn’t get the knot out. So I wore my apron until my husband got home from work and could untie it for me.

I wish I could say I learned my lesson and am more careful when I untie my apron, but that would be a lie. I still do it too fast and have to fight to get myself free.  Like today.

Am I the only one?

NOTE:  This post originally appeared on, and a reader, Paula, had a brilliant solution.  She said:  “Patty, I had the same problem! Then I got myself an apron with strings that wrap around and tie in front! No more fumbling with knots.  Maybe a similar apron will work for you.”

I’m going right out to get one!!! Thanks, Paula.
