    Assuming I have a gallon jug! Yeah... there you go again... sizing up the situation, and eliminating half a dozen steps for me! You should have seen me in Algebra and Geometry. My convoluted problem solving skills led to the right answer, but I'd often find that answer in half a dozen steps, while Aart who might have been sitting right beside me would have the answer in 2 steps! Thank you. You should be an engineer! [​IMG]

    LG have you tried running vinegar in your rinse cycle to counteract the hard water. I have been researching dish detergent... I found one recipe worth investigating further... A lot of the home made dish detergents leave a cloudy residue... I will make that next and let you know how it works.

    Yes... You can put it in the section that you add your rinse helpers.

    White vinegar is the bomb for hard water residue where ever it may be, I soak my shower head in it every few months or so....it can take time to work tho.
