I didn't realise it is unusal to wear an apron! I always wear one when I'm cooking and most of the time when I'm cleaning too. My standard is a massive french white linen bakers apron. Covers everything. When it gets a bit stained I just bleach it all clean again. My Mother and Nana always wore aprons too, you see. My Mum loves them! I bought her a great embroidered 1930s one when I was in California last year. She told me she had memories of her mother wearing one when she was little so I snapped it up for her. She was thrilled.
