Tip of the day

Be careful of how much you use.  Detergent manufacturers put the fill line in their measuring cups at deceptive places.  They want you to use more than you need so that you will purchase more of their product.  The fill line is sometimes in the middle of the cup instead of at the top like you might think.  To help you fill the detergent to the correct place each time, use a sharpie to mark the line when you first open the cap.  If you use powdered detergent, rinse the measuring cup clean and wipe it dry before marking it.
