Non-Toxic Cooking Spray

Who loves cancer? Not me. Did you know that the propellant (Methylene Chloride) in an aerosol cooking spray is a known carcinogen that leads to cancer? Yum-let’s spray that all over our pans and then heat it up.

How about instead we make our own!


Here’s all that you’ll need to make your very own Non-Toxic Cooking Spray:
One Part Water
One Part Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Plant Mister Bottle (I found mine at Lowe’s for $3)


Fill the mister bottle half-way with water.


Top it off with the Extra Virgin Olive Oil.


Thoroughly shake before every use.


Tah-dah! That’s it. You are finished and can spray your pans with your Non-Toxic Cooking Spray while knowing you rid yourself of one more nasty toxin.

I hope you have enjoyed my Non-Toxic recipes! It may seem overwhelming at first to rid your home of toxins and store-bought everything. And maybe you don’t want to make these products, but would like the benefits of non-toxic products in your home without going broke. I have found some simple solutions to replace the things that I cannot make/don’t want to make myself by purchasing them from a non-toxic green company online. Without directly endorsing them, if you are interested in knowing more,  Feel free to email me with questions.

    I actually went to Home Depot today looking for the bottle. Then I realized you said Lowes. Do you happen to know where in the store you found this bottle (link) 🙂 I really want to try this. Thank you so much for your help…my followers loved it on my FB page.

      I found the bottle in the house plant section. It’s typically used as a mister for house plants, I believe. Hope you can find one 🙂

  8. Jeannine says:

    I’m excited to try this. I have tried the same recipe in several different type of plastic spray bottles, and for some reason it doesn’t spray well. Don’t know if the oil gunks up the sprayer or what, but I’m willing to try the plant mister. It’s so pretty too!
