How to Make Your Own Cooking Spray

With stuff you have at home

You’re all set to bake your famous lemon bars when you realize you’re out of cooking spray. Instead of risking some major pan-stickage, make your own using ingredients you’ve probably got lying around the house.

What you need: Olive oil, water and a spray bottle.

What you do: In the spray bottle, mix one part olive oil with five parts water, then shake and spray as you would with normal cooking spray.

Why you do it: Unlike store-bought varieties, you know exactly what’s in it, plus it’s way cheaper than the alternative.

No Pam, no problem.
