Clothing protectors are used in health care facilities to reduce the staining of clothes due to a spill. These items are also referred to as Adult Bibs. Previously these items were manufactured using terry cloth or plastic. However, with the recent changes to federal regulations requiring a more "home-like" environment in nursing facilities, clothing protectors are manufactured in many styles and fabrics. Some clothing protectors resemble apparel looking like a vest or a scarf. The clothing protector fabrics currently being used are durable spun polyester, poly/cotton damasks and other less institutional fabrics.

In restaurants and first-class/business-class sections of airplanes, the buttonhole bibs are very popular. If wearing a tailored button-down shirt, this can attach right to the top button. If wearing a shirt without buttons, they can easily be tucked into the shirt at the neck.
