Why you should always wear an apron in the kitchen…

I always remember my mum in the kitchen wearing an apron. At work she often wore classic style Country Road clothes with court shoes, but the first thing she did when she arrived home in the evening was put an apron on.  The kitchen was her domain & I have fond memories of her being there, generating a presence of stability, warmth & security as well as a great evening meal for the family. The casseroles would simmer away & release delicious mouth watering aromas throughout the house. Do you have fond memories of your mother cooking in the kitchen? Tracey 👩‍🍳

WHY YOU SHOULD ALWAYS WEAR AN APRON IN THE KITCHEN…

APRONS CAN HELP YOU PREVENT THE RISK OF GETTING SICK

The clothes we’ve been wearing all day long have numerous germs all over them and these germs can easily be transferred to the food you are preparing. A simple act like putting on a bib apron can go a pretty long way in reducing this risk. After all, prevention is always better than cure.

The apron will help to prevent your clothes from coming into contact with the food you are cooking and any germs, such as hair, dust, and dander will stay within the apron and away from your pots, pans, and plates. We hear of enough incidents of clothing catching fire or minor burns in the kitchen. All of this can be prevented by the simple act of wearing an apron. Remember to tuck in all your loose clothing, too, and keep clothes firmly secured to your body.

APRONS HELP YOU AVOID GETTING MESSY

The kitchen can be a pretty grimy place with all the oil splatters, messy spills, and cooking that goes on, and even the splashing of water from the sink. All of this can get on your clothes and some stains can be really stubborn. Avoid the risk to your lovely clothing and put on an apron to avoid getting splattered on.

  1. Also in my time working in kitchens and bars, aprons can definitely save you from physical harm. I’ve had hot oil and another time a litre of hot butter accidentally poured on me and in having it land on a thick quality apron, you have time to remove that layer before your skin gets burnt.
