Grooming apparel includes all clothing and accessories worn during the process of cleaning or primping pets and other animals. One of the most common types of apparel used during the grooming process is an apron. Other kinds of grooming apparel include different kinds of gloves, shoes, tops, and pants, each designed in some way to aid in the grooming process. Apparel for grooming is used by people working in a professional capacity as well as non-professionals.

Many types of grooming apparel are waterproof because washing an animal is usually a part of the grooming process. Waterproof aprons may be worn to protect against splashing water. Wearing some sort of water-resistant footwear to keep the feet dry is also a good idea. Non-slip footwear could prevent slipping on soapy floors as well.

Many different types of tops are used as grooming apparel, including lightweight smocks and jackets commonly worn by professional animal groomers. The tops often are made from waterproof and stain-resistant materials, such as nylon, that also have the ability to repel hair from sticking to them. Pants may be made of a similar material, and it may be possible to find matching pants and tops for grooming. Pockets are often included somewhere on the front or side of the grooming top to accommodate the storage and quick retrieval of other grooming supplies. When professionals wear the jackets, coats, and smocks, they sometimes have embroidered or otherwise imprinted logos signifying the name or logo of the grooming place.

Gloves are common forms of grooming apparel. Some gloves are designed to protect against bites from a pet or other animal. Bite-resistant gloves sometimes have finger holes cut out so that the groomer can still accomplish intricate or delicate grooming tasks. Other grooming gloves are elbow length and waterproof, designed to aid in the washing process.

Different types of grooming apparel are available in assorted colors and styles. Many people choose to buy items that have some sort animal insignia on them. For instance, a dog groomer may want to have an apron with paw prints or dog bones on it. Available colors and patterns are also extensive, allowing any individual to choose whatever he or she may desire most. It is possible to find grooming clothes in children’s sizes as well.

Washing grooming apparel is often accomplished by using an ordinary washing machine. Some apparel, however, is designed to be disposable. Using disposable items eliminates the washing process, which many people find advantageous, but some people avoid wearing disposable apparel because it generates waste that can be bad for the environment.
