How much Detergent
to use
The amount of detergent
to use depends
on
the water hardness. Water hardness
is
measured
in grains per gallon. Using too little
detergent
can result in poor cleaning
and hard
water filming or spotting. Using too much
detergent
in soft water can cause permanent
etching on glassware. Your local water
company, water softener company or county
extension
agent can tell you the water
hardness
in your area.
More detergent
may be needed if the
phosphorus
content is 8.7% or less.
The phosphorus
content is shown on the
detergent
label.

performance.
