  1. I, for one, ALWAYS swirl counter-clockwise. It just feels right.
  2. Both!
  3. Depends on your location to the equator I think.
  4. When I am in the Northern Hemisphere, I rotate counterclockwise, when I go to the Southern I rotate clockwise.
  5. Well... that seems like a no-brainer of a poll option now that you say it...
  6. Clockwise always unless I'm on the moon the moon the I don't swirl I use a back and forth motion.
  7. I'm left handed and I go counter clockwise. I voted that I didn't pay attention though :tongue_sm
  8. +1
  9. I swirl clockwise when above the equator and counter clockwise when below the equator:lol::lol:

    I pump it up and down, with the vertical axis of the brush held perpendicular to the cross-section of the puck.

    This method is equally effective in both Northern and Southern hemispheres, right-handed, left-handed, ambidextrous, and presumably, works in outer-space as well.

  12. Neither. I put the mug with the soap in it on a turntable, and hold the brush still.
  13. Also both... I have a pattern I go in. Light clockwise, hard press clockwise, light counter, hard press counter, light clockwise.

    I started doing it without realizing it... then once I realized I was doing it that way, now I always make sure I do it that way.

    I have no idea why.

    Yes! I switch back and forth.
  15. I often use an M shape pattern when the puck starts to spin.
  16. Clockwise... It just feels like it's meant to be! :lol:
  17. By DE fault that would be counter clockwise.

  18. Counter Clockwise since I am a southpaw!
  19. Random thought -

    When I'm using a brush on a puck, I swirl clockwise.

    When I use a wire whisk to create whipped cream, I swirl counter clockwise.

    The end results with either the puck or the dairy cream look the same.
  20. Be sure not to mix up the two. :tongue_sm
