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).

Step 2: Towel!

Get a towel and pull two of the corners around your neck, almost like a bib.

There you go, lab coat in 30ish seconds. Top it off with a side of safety goggles, gloves, some ear plugs and even a bandanna (or respirator if your hardcore).

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.

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.

That "big paperclip thingy" is called a binder clip.
