A whisk works by moving the ingredients in one direction across the bowl and as the whisk is moving in that one direction across the bowl the liquid in the ingredients starts to move with it and then the whisk is dragged in the opposite direction, exerting force against the rest of the liquid still moving toward it.

To clean a whisk just take a paper towel or washcloth and wipe off any excess ingredients that have gotten onto the whisk.

Then you can soak the whisk in your sink with warm water and some dish soap and then wipe the whisk clean and rinse it off.

Or after wiping the whisk off of the ingredients you can then place the whisk in the dishwasher to clean it.

A whisk is used for mixing ingredients together to incorporate air into the mixture and smooth the mixture of the ingredients out.

And most types of whisks consist of a long, narrow handle with a series of wire loops joined at the end.
