If you're measuring a sticky substance such as honey, it will inevitably cling to the spoon. If you want to get an accurate measurement and save yourself some cleaning, redditor Shabotski suggests oiling the spoon first.

When baking, you use butter or oil to keep your iscuits (or whatever you're making) from sticking to the pan. Similarly, if you want to prevent anything from sticking to a spoon or measuring cup, just add some oil. This is particularly convenient if your recipe calls for oil already because you can just measure out the oil first. If it doesn't, pour a little bit in the measuring device and spread it around with a napkin or paper towel. This will make cleaning easier later.
