- Can be easily damaged by chemicals and therefore stains cannot be removed using household bleaches
- It is expensive and an apron need to be cheaper as it is a daily wear
- It is damaged by rubbing and therefore friction methods cannot be used to remove fixed dirt
- It is damaged by sudden changes in temperature and apron is exposed to such .
