Get PLA to stick to your Printrbot build platform with Hairspray or ABS juice

This 3D printing video was interesting:

I was having alot of trouble with PLA since I ran out of ABS. The PLA never wanted to stick to the platform among other problems. After searching I found that hairspray or ABS juice can solve those problems. Here I show you how to apply the hairspray to your build platform and how to apply the ABS juice to your build platform.

I had the best results with hairspray. Try it out and see if it works for you.
