I have a pvc that’s tight fit I don’t really want to glue it could I use part of a shopping bag because I don’t own any Teflon tape it’s just to stop a little drip from the pipe
Many thanks

I would absolutely use something designed for plumbing. The extra couple bucks is nothing compared to the potential water damage leaks can cause.

If you don't want to glue it because you need to take it apart occasionally I'd recommend getting a union, and then go ahead and use PVC cement on all the joints.
