I don't wear aprons for holiday or any other cooking. I'm not one to make extra laundry. I don't cook in 'good clothes,' to start with, and if I did, well, spills sometimes happen; that's life.
To me, an apron is just something else that has to be washed, and the last aprons I ever saw had to be ironed as well, and in my book, "iron" is a 4-letter word of the undesirable kind. If it needs ironing, it stays in the store.
I didn't even do bibs when my kids were babies first learning to feed themselves. Babies make enough laundry--bibs are just one more item. Nope, i would strip them down to their diapers before sitting them in their high chairs. Skin is much less fuss to wash, and they were going to get their bath anyway, so no worries, and no extra laundry.
(Do you get the idea I hate laundry??) ;-)
