Exactly, Rita === check your water content. Don't know how to tell you to
do that. But, a safe bet is to use distilled water to avoid any
interference. This is the advice I got because of the high calcium content
in ours. And, it was mentioned at that time that water softeners will
affect the results.

I'm trying a second batch of Clear #2 with no bentonite and using distilled
water and will let you know if this makes a difference. I believe it will
since my test batch worked and I had NOT used bentonite.

write me any time directly,
