Household Uses for Cooking Oil Spray



To dry nail polish quickly, spray wet nails with cooking oil




Discourage swallows. Barn and cliff swallows can be a lot of fun to watch-but not when they set up housekeeping where you'd rather they didn't, like in the eaves of your house or under your front porch. To say a gentle "Please build elsewhere," first remove any nesting material from the spot (as long as it hasn't already been filled with eggs, that is!) Then coat the cubbyhole's surface with cooking oil spray. When the birds try to rebuild the nest, the new material will slide right out.

Make digging easier. Just give your shovel, trowel, or spading fork a spritz of cooking oil spray every now and then. Those blades'll glide through the soil!

De-squeak hinges. They're annoying, all right, but indoors or out, there's a fast, easy solution: Just give the noisy things a shot of cooking oil spray. Ahhh-blessed silence!

Loosen a screw. don't you hate it when you have to struggle....and struggle, to get a stubborn screw or bolt loose? Well, struggle no more! Instead, blast the blasted thing with cooking oil spray, wait a few minutes to let it penetrate, and then have at it. It should come right out..

Lose the Labels.
To remove adhesive labels and tags from plastic or metal surfaces, coat the tag thoroughly with cooking oil spray. Let it sit for 5 minutes or so, then slide it off with a plastic scraper or one of those numerous (but nonfunctional) credit cards that bands send you in the mail.

To get a paper label unstuck from wooden furniture, saturate the paper with coooking oil spray, let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes, and gently peel it off.


There are probably many more uses for Non-Stick Cooking Spray than the ideas listed here. If you have a use that isn’t mentioned above, please share it with us in comments..
