When you mean by stirring, do you mean to at least disturb the surface of the substrate? Or just stirring the water a little?
I vacuum the top of the sand with a gravel vac, hovering just above the surface. Once I'm done vacumming all the muck up then I stir the sand with a pair of bacon tongs. I used to use a chopstick, then I used a fork, then I decided to use the bacon tongs. For my purposes the bacon tongs work the best as I can push them down into the sand, using a scissoring action, back and forth. The tongs are only used for the tank, nothing else.
