10 cooking spray tricks you’ll actually use

6. Gooey goods be gone
When you have to measure sticky ingredients (like peanut butter or honey) make sure to give your measuring cup a spritz with oil first. This will make them way easier to clean and it will ensure all of your ingredients get out of the cup and into your dish, according to Chef Dennis Littley.
7. Unstick a door lock
Spritz a bit of cooking spray onto a sticky key to make opening your front door a bit easier.
8. Say no to stains
Prevent red sauces from staining your favorite dishes (particularly the microwavable ones) by giving them a spritz before storing or cooking anything with red sauce in them.
9. Master the Mani
After you’ve applied that perfect coat of polish to your nails, spritz the top with a bit of cooking oil to help set the polish and speed up drying time. Rub the excess oil into your cuticles.

10. Remove soap scum from sinks
Get rid of soap scum from the sink and the tub by coating the nastiness with a bit of cooking oil. Let it set for a few minutes before wiping it away with a towel. The oils help break down the mineral deposits, making cleanup a breeze.
