For about the past four to six months I’d been reading more and more about people using stick blenders to mix their soap and lye-water together as opposed to stirring by hand. I hadn’t been having any troubles with my soap tracing so I figured it wasn’t worth the investment in on.
That is until I had a couple failed batches on new recipes I’d tried. After much research I’d determined I was getting a “false trace.” And the more I read, the more I realized a hand mixer would solve that problem.
One more failed batch and I finally broke down and bought a stick blender. Isn’t it pretty!?!? I love new toys! And the best thing about this!? I had a 30% off coupon to Kohl’s come in the mail and that reminded me I had a gift card from Kohl’s from Christmas that I hadn’t used so my new toy ended up not costing me anything! How cool is that?
Post to come shortly on how my new toy worked when I tried it out on a new soap recipe!
