Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question
  • Sometimes I don’t and I always regret it as I’m guaranteed to spill or splatter something down myself :/


  • I personally don’t but my Mum always does especially when cooking for occasions – ie Christmas, New Year


  • I have an apron and will use it every now and then if I have “work” clothes on that I don’t want to get stained or I’m cooking with oil.


  • No I never do but the way I end up sometimes I wish I had.


  • I would love to wear an apron in the kitchen they are pretty useful i think it would be great.


  • 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.
