Sometimes aprons are not readily available in times of sticky situations -- literally -- so the folks at Unika, a kitchen innovations company, decided to create the Smart Tea Towel. The towel can transform into your needed apron on demand.

This towel may be novelty-looking, but it promises to be one of the most ergonomic tools in your kitchen. It is simple and easy to use; all you have to do to deploy the apron is stretch its concealed elastic straps and secure them around your waist. The secure strap also has a built-in magnet so that you can hang the towel hybrid on your fridge when you aren't using it.

Though it doesn't cover your full body, it enables more cupboard space. Aprons can be heavy and take up most of the space in a kitchen drawer.
