Like Paddy said, do NOT use P.V.A.
Like Robbie said, just use a wooden stick and stir....should take all of 45 seconds to do![and will save you having to clean the mixer bit].
Wayoutwest says,just get on with it-its not rocket science

Paddy that tool in the link for mixing is a specially made and designed
for use with water based products.

The handle is alot further away than a drill would be with your mixer on the end of it and it would be alot better sealed up incase splash's of water comes into contact with it.

Heres a question for you Paddy would you use a mains operated drill out side to drill a hole if it was raining?
