Never an apron at home, but always in a 'working' kitchen. I keep a stack of towels handy that's about 3' high though, and am not shy in going through them. Don't mind getting my clothes dirtier, but am pretty particular about my work surfaces.

Commercial aprons, pretty tightly woven, are great for covering rising dough.

Actually there are only BBQ aprons at home for hubster when he is outdoors tending the grill. Those ghastly plasticy type ones with ridiculous designs on them. Men never seem to have a problem wearing those kind of pinnies...lololol
I don't have to do it that often.
My parents just ask if I want it done, so I just say Yes. :P

I try and try and try to get in the habit of wearing an apron. I'm getting better. My favorite ties around the neck and loosely (and I do mean LOOSE) around the waist. I hate things binding around my waist when I need to move. On front it says: Army Wife: Toughest Job in the Army. I'm always complaining about the hits my clothes take when I'm cooking. Hubby always pointedly looks at the collection of aprons sitting there ...... Maybe I'll learn. Blackwell, I keep a huge stack of clean towels at hand at all times, and I'm just a home cook. I like to have a clean one at all times.

I cook with an apron and at home I eat with an apron. At my age it pays to.

I never wear an apron. I can't stand the way it feels. I don't wear special clothes when I'm cooking - usually jeans and a sweatshirt this time of the year.

Well, I am not sure if that was a good idea... if I were you, I wouldn't want to wear it for cooking to get it all messed up... I would prefer simply strutting my stuff in it!!

Yes I tend to simply forget to wear them most of the time, too. I just wander into the kitchen and get right into the action. I try to wear it when I do something messy though. Also when I eat a messy platter of spaghetti or bucatini with splashy sauce, AND I am wearing something white or something very light in colour... then apron is an absolute must!!
