Slippery Spray Can Solution

Do you ever try to use a can of no-stick pan spray and find it slipping out of your hand because the can is greasy?

I'm often using it one handed while holding a baby or because my other hand is covered in flour or dough. A big reason I might be holding it one-handed is because I'm holding the pan to be sprayed in the other hand (over the sink).

It can be really difficult to hold a large spray can like that, especially when it's slippery with stray oil.

I finally took a minute to stop and try to fix the problem one day and came up with an easy solution!

Duh! I just slipped a wide rubber band around it and it gave me enough grip to spray a muffin pan one-handed quite easily. YAY!

Don't you just love simple life hacks?


  1. Oh yes! I also can't stand that oily can! I'll have to try that next time I have any problems.

  2. Very smart--what a great idea!

  3. I remembered this post this morning as I was getting ready. Pregnancy gives me a major case of butter-fingers, especially at this stage, and the one thing I hate dropping the most is my mascara! I always get it on my shirt and then it lands on the floor which is carpet. Grrr. So yeah, it suddenly hit me this morning to put a grippy hair elastic on the handle of my mascara. Ta-dah! I might just make it without dropping my mascara for the rest of this pregnancy!
