Too much snow is sticking to the blade each time I try to flip it. Has anyone tried to change the friction coefficient by waxing the blade of the shovel?

Smells better!



 



Silicone sprays work great, too. WD40 sucks, I only use that stuff for bait fishing.

Part of the WD-40 formula includes fish oil.
