Snow Removal O-Tip of the Week: A Solution for Sticky Situations

Our O-Tip of the week series we will be providing valuable “OT-Approved Life Hacks” to provide you with simple and helpful solutions for living. 

For the month of February, our O-Tip series will help you to practice safe and efficient snow removal this winter.

When snow is wet and heavy it often will stick to your shovel, making it increasingly difficult to clear.  Try this simple hack to lighten the load by ensuring the snow won’t stick to your shovel.  Before you begin, spray your shovel with a light layer of cooking oil (like Pam) to create a non-stick surface.  Please ensure the spray does not get on the ground which could create a slipping hazard.
