    My two uses for cooking spray. I spray the bottom of the pole for my hummingbird feeders. Ants won't cross this line. No ants in my feeders.
    When cooking pasta etc. I give the water a shot, pot won't boil over.

    You can also spray the pole for your bird feeders and squirrels can't climb it.

    why not use it on your car door gaskets so they don't get frozen in this cold weather

    if you spray your plants with garlic cooking spray it keeps the deer from eating them.

    I put a small bowl in a frying pan on a round canning jar top. Then add water to the pan, spray the bowl and dump in an egg, then put on a top. That way I get the cooking of it without fat and the eating container also in one. Dump the water, pan dries itself and back into the cupboard. Serve egg on plate with toast, spoon of butter, spoon of jam. Nice breakfast. Hot steaming coffee with cream and I'm almost awake by then.

    You can get lots of this spray at dollar stores. The ones at regular groceries are SOO expensive for the contents!

    Spray it on your satellite dish in the winter to keep ice/snow from accumulating and interfering with reception.

    I hope those are not sprays in a can. read your labels ladies...

    I use a pump spritzer from pampered chef, I have 3 of them, for different oils...NO propellants in the air or on my food!
    and the oils I use go a lot longer than one of those cans for less money!

    I spray garlic oil mixed with soapy water on my plants, cooking oil spray can attract other bugs, and cause the pollens not to get where they need to go!

    I was just going to say that...dad used to use WD40 but the birds didn't like the smell...this doesn't have an offensive smell.

    yes, that is it!
    I have used them for years!
    I use extra virgin olive oil, sesame oil, and an herb infused oil and would not know what to do without one of these bottles. They clean up easy and last for years! The spray is a finer mist than can sprays, I spray my veggies when roasting and it browns the tops just right!

    I like propellants but don't use Pam type things. High quality olive oils from the bottle, baby!

    Also spray your pot before putting potatoes & water in and will not boil over....
