Why don't spiders stick to their own web?

We created our own web by winding sticky tape across the table legs. Next, we put our fingers on the tape and felt our fingers stick to the tape. Then we dipped our fingers in oil and touched the tape again. This time our fingers didn't stick to the tape. We discovered that spiders make oil from their legs to stop them sticking to their own web.
