Need to do some painting/surgery but don't want to get your clothes all wrecked and you don't have a lab coat anywhere in sight? Well make one in 30 seconds using item probably with in a meter of your reach!

All pictures in this instructable feature my brother as the lab coat model. Yay.

Step 1: Get materials

For the 30 second lab coat you'll need: 1 towel, 1 length of string (or anything that will fit around your waste), 1 big paper clip thingy (check pictures below for clarification).
this was nice but you could take a old white shirt of your dad if he's kind of tall or if the shirt comes till your knees because for my science fair i did it and remember you can make the sleeves your size by cutting it. fold it a bit after you cut it, and sew it after you cut it. thats a good idea, too.
Just get a painters/chefs apron for a few bucks. They have convenient pockets on the front. I got mine from Hobby Lobby for $2.<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.dickblick.com/categories/apronssmocks/">Apron Samples</a><br/>
When I'm in the lab, needing a lab coat, I want something that covers my arms, especially my forearms. I'd just (1) go to goodwill, (2) get some appropriate garment like a housecoat or trench coat, and (3) cut out the lining (if any) so it's not so hot. A trench coat is particularly good if your surgeries involve large quantities of spurting blood.
Hobby Lobby FTW!
yes because i always have the need to do surgery thanks alot!!
That last picture - <em>it's Igor!</em><br/>
That "big paperclip thingy" is called a binder clip.
Or a bulldog clip.
Heheh.. nice instructable, good for those times you don't want to get anything on you. ~C PS: Tell your bro he needs a haircut :)
this is ridiculous. like i'd be caught dead without my labcoat... nice instructable. looks exactly like the picture.
or if you take chemistry in school, you get a chemical-proof apron, and you get to keep it. :P i have one of them and them chemical-proof safety goggles. yay! nice structable though, useful when you don't have professional stuffs handy. :)
Ha, good for painting and scientist bussiness I suppose! You look like you are a terrorist working in a methlab though...
