A couple of years ago after reading the book, It Starts With Food, I went on this health kick and started eating Paleo.
One of the first things I read about was about what was contained in most commercial cooking sprays. A number of chemical components just didn’t sit well with me, so I immediately went to my cupboard and threw it away.
Later I discovered that cooking spray has other non-consumable uses that work fantastic. I keep a can now in my basement with my tools.
12 Unbelievable Uses for Cooking Spray
1. Keep Car Wheels Clean
We’ve all seen that fine black dust that collects around the wheels of a car. That’s brake dust, and it’s produced every time you apply the brakes in your car. It can be super hard to clean off, but not anymore. After you wash your car, spray the wheels with a light coating of cooking spray. The brake dust will wipe right off.
2. De-Bug The Car
Don’t you just hate how bugs get stuck to the grate of your car? After you’ve finished cleaning the wheels, clean your grate and then spritz a light coating of cooking spray on the grate. Next time you clean your car, you’ll be able just to wipe them away.
3. Lubricate A Bicycle Chain
When you have a squeaky bike chain but you’ve run out of lubricating oil, grab the can of cooking spray! Spray a small amount of cooking spray on the chain. Don’t use too much. You don’t want it to look wet. Wipe off any excess.
4. Squeak No More
Hit that door with a shot of cooking spray. Have a rag or paper towel handy to wipe up the excess. That door will stop squeaking once and for all.
5. Remove Paint and Grease
Smelly solvents do the trick in removing paint and grease from your skin, but it sure does smell bad. Instead, use cooking spray to do the job. Work the spray in well and rinse. Wash again with soap and water.
6. Dry Nail Polish
Need your nails to dry in a hurry? Hit it with a coat of cooking spray and let it dry.
7. Help Catch Fish
Spray your casting line with cooking spray and watch your line cast farther and easier.
8. Prevent Grass From Sticking
Cleaning stuck grass from the mower is a pain. Prevent grass from sticking to the mower blades and the underside of the housing by spraying them with cooking oil before you start cutting the grass.
9. Prevent Snow From Sticking
Shoveling can be hard, but it can be aggravating when the snow sticks to the shovel. Spray the shovel with non-stick cooking spray before you head outside to shovel. The snow will slide right off. If you own a snow blower, you can spray inside the discharge chute to prevent it from clogging.

I mean if you can clean soap scum and the like, is it a safe indigestible item? I think not. I’ll stick with olive oil in my cooking!
