This is pretty similar to a medicine spoon STP but out of different materials. I’ve never come across a medicine spoon like the ones guys use in the UK. They’re probably out there, but I’ve never seen one. So I looked for other alternatives, and came up with this.
Get a bottle of Flash All-Purpose Cleaner. Or another bottle that has a handle the same shape. Flash costs around £2-3 from Tescos depending on what scent you want. Obviously for this it doesn’t matter, but you might as well use the contents up if you’re going to buy it. The important part is the shape of the handle.
Cut the handle off the bottle carefully. It’s best to leave more than you think you’ll need — I didn’t really think about that when I started and would have made it better if I had — as you can always cut it down later. I used a sharp penknife to start it off and then scissors, but YMMV with different bottles and thicknesses of plastic. The Flash bottle wasn’t hard to cut at all though.
Trim down the plastic into the shape you want. Look at factory manufactured STPs if you’re stuck. In the photograph I tried to show what mine looks like.
Smooth down the edges using sandpaper/glasspaper or a lighter. If you’re going to use a lighter test the melting point of your plastic on a scrap piece first and remember that it’s going to get very hot and if it starts to burn it’ll give off toxic fumes. Cheap lighters and Clippers get very hot as well (trust me I know, my thumb still hasn’t forgiven me!) and don’t like being lit for extended periods of time. The plastic on Flash bottles goes see-through when it gets malleable and doesn’t take more than a lick of flame.
Practice. If it doesn’t work out try using a different shaped bottle. You can reshape it a little by melting it as well. And don’t expect it to work perfect first time, try in the bath or shower!

Anyone remember this(this)? haha, Well turned out it worked amazingly (: It made me feel even better cause I made it myself ;P If you are anything like me and don’t have money to buy a harness and such and you can’t ask your mom or somebody about it then this works great. any questions ask here <3(: it’s be nice to get some new people to follow to (: ^-^
I ordered this binder, but it’s too big. It’s a fine binder, it just happens to be not my size. I can’t return or exchange it because there is a five-day limit to begin that process after receiving the item. It sent to my billing address instead of my shipping address, so I had to wait for my mother to get it to me.
with the scissors, cut an oval as shown, from the scalloped edge at the bottom of the bottle, to the top of the bottle. You will have to experiment with how wide to make the oval, but be sure the cut is smooth for at least the last 2cm/1inch curve at the bottom, because that part will be in contact with your body. unscrew the cap, point down, and take care of your emergency.
Works great for road trips. This thing has saved my day when i was caught by surprise in my binder suit, and it’s recyclable!! Sorry i couldn’t post a real picture of it, but i couldn’t get my phone to send.
Okay, so i saw a post a few days ago somewhere, (might’ve been here i can’t remember) about a guy who made a device out of an old plastic toothpaste tube. So i was looking around my bathroom and noticed we were all out of this anticeptic cream - the tube was a great size (just under 5 inches).
I carefully cut through the top part of the tube (it’s made out of a weird aluminium foil-y material, with soft plastic on the outside, so it’s not too flimsy, but not solid) Gave it a good wash, rounded off the corners/sharp bits, and was ready to go.. no pun intended :P
It literaly took no longer than 10mins. Obviously not for use with urinals in public, but behind a closed door it works a charm :)
i can sew anything and i have access to a surger. therefore i would love to sew binds for me and my friends. mostly, binder fabric is 70%lyrca and 30% cotton, often medical grade, and i want to buy it by the yard. does anyone know where i can get it by the yard?
