Default butchering aprons

Anyone have a good lead on a rubber/similar butchering apron? washing clothes stained with animal blood will be a pain on a washboard. Being able to just wash off the blood/guts with simple water will make clean up much easier to deal with.

All i'm finding are porn/BSDM leather stuff, or Haloween costumes. lol

We have made some from vinyl. Check with your local butcher shop. When they order supplies, they could order some for you. We have some cloth ones that are easy to clean.

We take the 55 gallon black yard trash bags, tear holes for the head and arms, and slide them on over clothes. I'm 6' tall, and they reach past the tops of my rubber boots. When done, just tear them off and throw them away. Very cheap, and works great.

I local butcher orders us plastic ones that cover your arms up to your neck and ties in the back like a hospital gown. Works great.

On cloth, always wash with cold water so you dont set the blood in.
