*Happy Dance* I have a new toy!

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?

My stick blender. All shinny and new! Soon to be used!

Post to come shortly on how my new toy worked when I tried it out on a new soap recipe!
