PLA Bed Adhesion

I'm one of the ones still using hairspray.  PLA doesn't stick well to ABS-Juice, and right now my heated bed is on the fritz, so using an advanced coating/textured plastic is a recipe for disaster (print breaks instead of coming off).

L'oreal Elnett holds very well (almost too well) and dries quickly.
Aquanet holds holds almost as well, but takes a long time to dry.
Vidal Sassoon is quick and holds ok for most things.
L'oreal Lock-It does not hold at all.

Don't use the beer on the platform.  Drink it while waiting for the Aquanet to dry.
