Is it just me or does powdered sugar seem to be electric? I was make MMF and when I was sifting my powdered sugar, I kept getting like little shocks ( you know like static elctricity). I am wondering if I am the only one who has this happen.
Yep, that happens to me when I am sifting powdered sugar with my mesh strainer! I found it odd too...
It's not the sugar, it's the strainer/sifter probably. Static electricity can happen when certain surfaces rub together and then the charge is released, giving you a shock! I'm no science expert - I just remember a little from helping my oldest with school work! LOL
oh my gosh!
i thought i was the only one that ever experienced this!
yes, i believe it has something to do with the swift motion of sifting back and forth generating some sort of static electricity which is conducted by the metal sifter frame!
