  • I do! I even made my own apron! I have 3 in total. I wear it only when cooking, not housework. I do it to protect my clothes, and they are fun to wear!



  • I’ve never worn an apron in my life! I hate layers and I think I’d be pretty uncomfortable in one!



  • Occasionally I wear one if I’m making something that involves a lot of flour and kneading or mess. Not sure why they have fallen out of vogue, but they are still very useful and save on washing. I think they are practical



  • I have aprons and wear them sometimes but generally I cook on the run so don’t think the wear it.



  • I like to wear one if cooking something messy, but don’t bother for most things.



  • Pretty sure our ancestors wore aprons unless they relaxing, entertaining or out and about. Certainly saves washing larger items of clothing. I tend to hold the dishes against me while wiping them so a pinafore absorbs the moisture. They make good bibs.



  • I don’t wear one, but always have a towel over my shoulder or tucked into my skirt! I always remember my grandma wearing an apron – she would never start cooking without one – I guess times have changed and Mum’s nowadays are often too busy to even think about putting one on!



  • i would if i remembered to put one on – i get filthy when baking!



  • I don’t but really should. When I am baking I seem to get everything all over me. Honestly tho I don’t wear one because I don’t own any and I would probably forget to put it on anyway



  • No, normally have a tea towel draped over a shoulder tho.



  • I don’t. Generally I just keep a hand towel over my shoulder to wipe my hands on.



  • I don’t wear an apron but think i may start, to be honest the thought hadn’t crossed my mind !



  • I thought aprons were for the elderly yet I love them.



  • I always wear an apron while cooking I use them as a fashion statement as well as protection for my clothing. Love the beautiful patterns you can purchase now. They are not that expensive.



  • Wearing an apron saves clothes too and no stains!
