Excellent tip. Would distilled be more effective than DI filtered that I use?
I get distilled from our tumble dryer condenser chamber, in limited supplies.
then I get DI filtered from my Raceglaze vessel, where supplies plentiful.

I already use DI and ONR in a sprayer, but wil try with distilled. Thanks.

Di water from your vessel would be better. Tumble drier water tends to contain perfumes etc from softners and washing powders / liquids
