How much detergent
The amount of detergent to use depends on the hardness of
your water and the type of detergent. If you use too little,
dishes will not be clean. If you use too much in soft water,
glassware will etch.
Water hardness can change over a period of time. Find out
your water's hardness by asking your Sears Sales Associate,
local water department,
water softener company, or county
