I love wearing aprons.
If I knew how to sew I would probably own 50 aprons.
My countertops are white, therefore I have to use a bleach cleaner to keep them clean and stain free. I have ruined so many shirts!
I started wearing aprons and noticed that not only did it preserve my clothing, but it put me in the cleaning "mood" if there is such a thing ;o)
Kind of like how the Fly Lady suggest getting dressed and wearing shoes will help you clean and not sit in front of the t.v.
I have the aprons that just cover your waist (all vintage). These are great when I cook. I can wash my hands frequently and just dry them on my apron.
The full aprons are good for when I clean, or when I'm cooking while wearing a nice outfit before we go someplace. I picked up the red and black apron at Target clearance down probably cheaper than I could have bought fabric for.
Do you wear aprons?
