Hoo Rag

*Sponsored Post
For those professional chefs, line cooks, and regular at home cooks like myself, there have been plenty of times when you've needed something to keep the sweat and hair out of your face while working with food.  The Hoo Rag is worth a look. Made from a lightweight cotton-polyester blended micro-fiber, the Hoo Rag is seamless and fun to wear.

When the folks behind this invention reached out to me, I was skeptical at first because I saw the Hoo Rag as being used only for the great outdoors like a Survivor "buff".  Most marketing shows how it can be used for sun-protection, wind-protection, a sweat towel, a bug guard, or a dust blocker.  Known as "the better bandana," few products out there bring as much versatility to the table as this all-in-one product. The pattern or design of the bandana is fully customizable to suit your preferences. You can even have them made with your own logo or design (this would come in nifty when doing promotions for your own company or brand). They already have lots of creative patterns and designs ready for customers to select from.  The folks sent me this black & white one, but I would love to rock a purple one with What Micky Eats' logo.

Once a pattern has been selected, the next choice is how to wear the Hoo Rag. This is the really cool part, as Hoo Rags can be worn in almost any manner imaginable; it makes them perfect for almost any sport, activity, or hobby - even cooking. Straight out of the bag, it goes on easily as a neck gaiter, head band, or face mask. With a little know-how, the Hoo Rag can be quickly turned into a variety of other accessories like a balaclava, pony tail holder, beanie, and even an “Alice rag” (this one is good for keeping long hair off the face). And don’t worry,there is an instructional video demonstrating the method for converting the Hoo Rag into all of these designs.  I gave it a shot and the stretchy one-size-fits-all material truly is comfortable, although I could see Keith using it on a hot summer's day grilling outside more than I would on an all night bake-a-thon.  I did like being able to wear it in all the different ways and could see the benefit to those who work in restaurant kitchens. Clean-up is a breeze too: just machine wash in warm water, then hang it out to dry.

So, if you’re looking for a great way to create a barrier between your head and the elements, whether for outdoor treks or indoor culinary adventures, you definitely need to give Hoo Rag a shot.  For more information on Hoo Rag, visit
