Who knew I can shovel snow this way!? Amazing use for cooking spray!

To understand why I am so amazed by this, I will have to explain that we don’t get snow out here where I live, except for two very particular and somewhat special times where there was “snow” (disappeared & melted quickly), I have never really seen snow up close.

I am fascinated by snow. I have been to snowy places of course, but when it’s not snowing. So I have snow envy. 🙂  My friends and relatives that live in the east coast tell me, “Don’t worry honey, if you ever visit me (us) during winter, you can help me shovel some snow out of my driveway.”

I was thinking more along the lines of making snow angels, snowman, and packing snow balls for some snow fights, but shoveling snow sounds like fun, too! Yay!!!!


It’s funny how the universe answers my inquiry mind sometimes. While browsing just now, I found this (see picture below)…  Now, I don’t know if this will actually make it any less work, but maybe not having the snow stick to your shovel will help keep things moving. Especially in the morning when you are barely awake and trying to shovel your way out of the driveway. Since I can’t test this out here, maybe one of you can kindly inform me if this actually works.

Someday when I visit my relatives during the winter months, I just may help them shovel a bit of snow. Just enough so that I can build a snowman! Lol. 🙂


YOU NEED:  Can of Cooking Spray

YOU DO THIS:  Spray, spray, spray and coat the shovel front and back

THEN: You shovel the snow…no sticking. YAY! Or so they tell me.

    • Hi Anastasia. Thanks for dropping by and commenting. Yes, it really does look handy. What i wanted to know is if it actually works. If you have to shovel snow in your area, please let me know.Thank you. 🙂

  1. There’s something out there that’s called “Liquid Shovel” that adsorbs into the concrete (or other exterior materials) in your driveway or front steps. You just spray it down outside the home, it will dry, and the snow does not stick. It acts like salt but doesn’t destroy your exterior. Better than a shovel :). I’ve never used it though
