Aprons are pieces of clothing, mainly wore over the regular clothes so as to provide a covering that makes sure the normal clothes are not ruined, while working or cooking. They are mandatory in several professions such as a cook, a waitress or a waiter, a nurse, domestic workers, an electrician. Aprons are made of several materials, aside from the traditional cloth aprons. Rubber aprons are worn commonly by people working in chemistry labs or electricians. There are lead aprons as well that are used by medical people who work around X-ray machines, to block harmful effects of the X-ray. Waterproof aprons are also available, for household work such as cooking or washing dishes or doing laundry. These aprons are made of PVC or oilcloth.
