Hello, adventurous makers! I wanted to pop in and write a quick blog about immersion blenders.
Lately, I have noticed a lot of my soaps have air bubbles. After doing some thorough investigating, I discovered that my immersion blender blade is cracked! A cracked or bent immersion blender blade can cause unwanted air to be added to your soap, lotion, cream or any mixture. The unwanted air can cause your soap to look like a block of Swiss cheese. It is normal for the blade of an immersion blender to be slightly uneven; usually, one side is angled up, and the other is angled down. Dramatic angling of the immersion blender blades is a problem.
It is a good idea to periodically check your tools for damage. Use this opportunity to take a few minutes and check all of your soap making tools. If you have any cracked or deformed blades, it is time to treat yourself to some new tools.
