    I have also used one of those teflon (?) oven liners which seem to help
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Wasn't there a post some time ago about using something that worked as good as a supreme slider? Maybe it was the teflon oven liner, but I thought that it was something else?

    I made the famous foam table and covered each section with oilcloth. Maybe that's what you're thinking of...oilcloth. It works great.

    Silicon baking tray liners work OK as well.

    I purchased a Silicon baking tray liner which is pink and looks to be similar to the Supreme Slider.
    I have cut a small opening just like the slider. It stays in place just like the slider and instead of A$40.00 it only
    cost me $5.00 and is the same size as the slider.

    I also use a Black Teflon sheet that can be used on an oventray/BBQ ($5.00) instead of the expensive applique mat, it works just the same for less money.
    Both the above items have been bought at the Dollar Shops, Reject or Crazy Clarks here - but I am sure you would have the equivalent. I have never used silicon spray.
    These work for me.

    Sew slip, its bigger and cheaper than the slider if you get the big one, you can get them on ebay for 20 dollars the big one, and don't forget machingers gloves, it does make a difference, i can tell when I don't put them on
