Oil Up

Whether you are adding honey to tea, or you need to measure any sticky substance, it will generally stick. This does not just happen with things like honey and syrup, but even with vegetable shortening or sour cream. If you want to get an accurate measurement and save yourself some cleaning, then this tip is just for you.

Oil Up

When baking, you use butter or oil to keep your cookies (or whatever you are making) from sticking to the pan. Similarly, if you want to prevent anything from sticking to a spoon or measuring cup, just add some oil. This is particularly convenient if your recipe calls for oil already because you can just measure out the oil first. If it does not, just pour a little drop in the measuring device and spread it around with a napkin or paper towel. This little amount of effort will make cleaning easier later.
