Firstly – What is a Hoo-Rag?
Hoo-rags are tubular bandanas made of polyester microfiber which makes it great for wash and wear with ease. Because of the tubular stretchy nature, you can wear a Hoo-rag several ways simply by twisting the fabric. No tying necessary!
Ways Chefs and Kitchen Staff can wear a Hoo-Rag
There are a few, different ways that people wear a Hoo-rag. The most common method is as a headband. If your primary concern is keeping sweat off your brow or dripping down your face, this option is for you. Just fold the fabric, slip it on and you are good to go.
Another popular way to wear a Hoo-rag is the neck gaiter. For this option, simply pull the tube down around your neck. In this fashion, it will keep sweat from dripping from one part of the body to another. In this case, from the hair and neck and down onto the back. As an added benefit, it can be worn this way to keep someone warm, as if it were a scarf.
From time to time, people might decide to wear the Hoo-rag as a face mask. This type of wearing style makes it great for protecting the face from high temperatures, small particles of food or dust and it may even help reduce the smell of cleaning agents or detergents should you be on cleaning duty.
Last, but not least, if you have longer hair you may find the beanie, ponytail and saharah options useful. For the beanie, just turn the product inside out, twist and flip. You now have a beanie you can slide on your head. For the sahara, flip the product inside out, put it on as if you were going for the neck gaiter style and then pull it up over your hair so the second edge rests on your forehead. The tube should encapsulate the rest of your hair. These options are great for keeping longer hair in check (and out of the food).
Alternate Uses for the Hoo-rag
We don’t stop there. While you can certainly wear the Hoo-rag, we’re certain you’ll find alternate uses for it. If you’re in a pinch and can’t find your towel, a Hoo-rag can be wrapped around your hand to allow you to pull hot pans off a burner. Perhaps you keep a plastic bottle of water nearby and it heats up quickly in the kitchen. Grab a spare Hoo-rag, wrap it around the bottle and keep it cool longer. As a bonus, you won’t have any condensation to worry about.
