My mom taught me to use a piece of waxed paper folded over your fingers, or a cheap sandwich bag will do the trick as well. Then scoop your fat, whatever you’re using butter, shortening etc. so your hands don’t get dirty.
And if it calls for flouring the pan, I always do that over the sink.

When the flour tipped over and spilled out, it reminded me of something that always happened to me. Now I keep the flour in a container. :) Live and learn. I love these pinch tip videos. Even though most of us are familiar with some of the tips, we have to keep in mind some of the younger cooks don't know these things. Great job!

I make my own pan grease from vegetable shortening, vegetable oil and flour, whipped together. Store in a sealed container .

When I am making a cake I use some of the dry mix to flour the pan. It doesn't leave that white coating that flour leaves.

I can not take credit for this, as I read about it somewhere many years ago, and it is pretty handy when greasing and flouring-odd shaped pans. I keep a powder puff in my flour canister. Simply dust the nooks and crannies with it and shake out the extra flour. Plus, it is fun to hear the comments when someone discovers the powder puff in there.

Depending on what I am baking, I sometimes use Cake Batter or Confectioners Sugar. And of course I have used flour. Great tip.

I also have been doing this forever, except I like to do it in the sink so I can just rinse any flour that escapes right down the drain.

I usually put a scoop of the cake mix instead of flour and shake the excess back into the mix...

mine did not freeze up, but I was hoping for a different hint. I have been doing this forever. Thought everyone knew this.
