The History Of Aprons

I don't think our kids know what apron is. The principle was to protect Grandmas dress underneath because she only had a few. It was also easier to wash aprons than dresses and aprons used less material. But along with that, it served as a pot holder for removing hot pans from the oven.

It was a wonderful way for drying children's tears, and on occasion was used for cleaning out dirty ears.

From the chicken coop,the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.

When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy children.

And when the weather was cold Grandma would wrap it around her arms.

Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.

Chips and kindling wood was brought into the kitchen in that apron.

From the garden it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled it carried out the hulls.

In the fall,it was used for carrying apples that had fallen from the trees.

When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of a few seconds.

When dinner was ready, Grandma would go out on the porch, waved her apron and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields for dinner.

It will be along time before someone invents something that will replace that old-time apron that served for so many purposes.

Grandma. Would set her hot apples on the window sill to cool. Her Granddaughters set theirs on the window sill to thaw.

They would go crazy now trying to figure out how many germs were on that apron.

I don't think I ever caught anything from that old apron........but love
