So every time I'm going to make butter cream or anything requiring powder sugar I think about it twice. I put it in the sifter and as I'm sifting it it flies everywhere and it sticks to the bottom of the sifter!! Why could it be? Does anyone else have this problem?

OMG YES! Every time I sift it seems to ignore all the rules of gravity!! I have more on the underside of my cupboards than in the bowl. I'd love to hear any suggestions!

I use a strainer like this, and push it through the mesh with the back of a large spoon rather than shaking the strainer.

I bought mine at the dollar store.

I use a large flour sifter and just drape a cheesecloth over the top of it.
