Certain clothes while cooking

Do you have a certain preference of which style of clothing you like to wear while preparing dinner. Do you change clothes to prepare for dinner or perhaps do you not have a certain style as long as the dinner gets prepared? I used to wear certain shirts while cooking in order to avoid oil sprays and such getting on nice clothing.

No, I cook in whatever I happen to be sitting around in. If I have on a particularly good shirt, I'll change into a t-shirt, but I don't have any clothing that is for "cooking only". I don't own an apron or anything along those lines- but when shirts become really soiled or stained, I still hang on to them, in case I might to paint in them!

No I wear my everyday clothes while cooking. I am such a sloppy cook I probably should wear something else while preparing and cooking dinner. I think I may purchase an apron that may help.

Hi, bamakelly. Sometimes I do. But what I usually have on is clothes that are made for me to wear around the house. With having these type of clothes on, I am able to not worry about these clothes getting dirty or stained up because, I can easily discard of them in the laundry if they do get dirty.

Totally. I don't bother wearing an apron. Instead of having a specific style or certain clothing that I wear when I am going to cook dinner, I have specific cloths that I don't wear, ever when cooking. The reasons are the same as why you wear certain shirts while cooking and for the same reasons. To avoid oil sprays and such getting on nice clothing. I have learned the hard way. Specifically, while making spaghetti, wearing one of my favorite white t-shirts and splat. Nice. So much for that t-shirt. is a real drag, especially when you have been collecting tshirts from particular companies for years and suddenly it is ruined because you decided it was time to make a tomato based dish and not bother changing first. Now I do.

When it comes to cooking, I am a mess. I tend to spill and splash, at the very least. I use to many dishes and cookware, efficiency is just not my thing. So when it comes to what I wear when I'm the one cooking, I wear comfortable clothing that I am not too worried about getting a bit messy. I don't care what i look like as long as the food tastes good.

If it is something that could possibly be very messy then I will change into some older t-shirt to cook in. Heck, half the time by dinner time I am in my PJ's anyway though. I like to be comfortable, so if I am not going to be going anywhere else I will change when I walk through the door.

Hi bamakelly, As long as I am wearing something comfortable, I'm good to go. Take care...
