  • Spray Bottle


  • 1/4 cup cooking oil olive, avocado, etc.
  • 1 1/4 cup water


  • Measure out 1 1/4 cup water into a glass measuring cup.
  • Add 1/4 cup liquid oil of your choice (I like to have one bottle with olive oil and one bottle with avocado oil ready to use at all times).
  • Pour into spray bottle. That's it! Anytime you want to use your cooking spray, simply give the bottle a few good strong shakes then coat your pan, veggies, skillet, or anything else!
