Put a small amount on the plate (or plates if you want to do both) and spread it over the plate with a paper towel.  Wipe until its dry and evenly spread out (you can actually feel the plates become siliconized).  Be sure to wash the plates with something like comet before you use them.  I would avoid using window cleaner to clean them as some of them seem to cause problems (although I don't think windex does).  Clean the plates with 100 % etoh just before using them.
