101 uses for Silicone Spray

Many viewers have sent in suggestions for the use of silicone spray, and the list is long. Aside from all the standard squeaky hinges, some that caught my attention were:

- lubricate sewing needles to get through heavy materials;

- spray foam rubber before trying to squeeze it into the cloth sleeves commonly used by upholsterers;

- use as a molding release for plastic molded parts;

- use to keep outdoor locks from freezing (it displaces water, hence literally drives existing water out of a lock);

- lubricate sliding windows so they slide better;

- use it on your snow shovel to keep the snow from sticking.
