This helps you have a consistent blend as all the lighter stuff will float and the heavier will sink to also get a touch of the blend. Turn on the blender and start with a slow speed on your power speed as you progress. When you are sure that you have a consistent blend you can now shut it down, take the blender out and stir the blender. If you are not pleased with the consistency as it may be too thick you can blend once again. While blending ice always crush the junks as a hand blender may not be able to blend them.

Wash it with soap and hot water. As for the blender itself as this is an electrical appliance you do not want water inside the motor as this will make it faulty. The blender blades are what you need to wash and make sure that you are doing this while the blender is off.
