Keep those ants away and your counters clean, by standing the stick-up! If there are only 2 reasons to own a blender stick, this is one of them! This is a no-brainer! Before this innovation, the only option was to choose between a sticky counter which entails cleaning it, or, putting it straight into the sink. The problem with putting it: in the (hopefully nearby sink) to prevent the counter mess are that the stick is used in intervals or when air pockets randomly form, so pulling it back out of the sink a short moment later to use it again can be an inconvenient and dirty option.
