DIY Tip – Use cooking spray to prevent grass clogs in your mower

When I was a kid, I spent many a summer day mowing my neighbor’s lawn. It was the best way to earn money at that age, but the work was long and tiring. It wasn’t your average suburban lawn, but one that spanned a few acres. One of the most annoying things was when the blades would get gummed up with grass, which forced me to stop and turn the mower over to clean it out. If you’re looking for a quick fix to make sure this doesn’t happen, it might be sitting in your kitchen cabinet.

While it isn’t a substitute for proper lawn mower maintenance and blade sharpening, you can use cooking spray on the undercarriage and blades. This will help prevent the grass from sticking to the mower, and keep it flowing back out onto the lawn where it belongs (or in a bag, if that’s what you do). Just be sure to properly clean the mower and not use the spray too often, as you don’t want it building up and causing other issues.
