Squeegee dough off mixing hand
I'm working my way through Ken Forkish's Flour, Water, Salt, Yeast, and while describing hand mixing sticky dough, he says,
use your other hand to squeegee any dough off your mixing hand and back into the tub
Every time I've tried to clean my mixing hand with the other hand, it's been a comical disaster, with dough sticking to both hands.
It's a small thing, and I feel a little silly asking, but I am curious to know whether there's a trick to this or it it's simply bad advice.
