3. Did you accidentally add Packets No. 1 and No. 2 at the same time?

4. Did you use the correct amount of water?

Too little water:

If YOU used too LITTLE water, simply add MORE to arrive at the RIGHT AMOUNT (12 ounces).

Too much water:

If you OVER DID IT and added TOO MUCH water, let the container STAND until it has EVAPORATED to the proper amount. DO NOT DRAIN OFF excess water. The QUANTITY of formula provided in the two Packets, No. 1 and No. 2 is the amount of chemicals needed for 12 ounces. Too much water DILUTES the formula. Too little water CONDENSES it.
