    I use dollar store fabric softener. Its a military flare canister. Its simililar to 50 cal canister in looks but is twice as long and about three times deeper.

If you juggle the mesh size & wire diameter you can find something for opening size that should work for whatever size shot you're working with. Price of a 12" X 12" sheet of the size I used was $3.75 plus shipping.

    I have also had good luck with the dollar store fabric softener.

    I would start with aprox 75% softener and 25% water. Look at your shot and adjust as needed.

    Rinses clean quickly and easily with cold water. (Garden hose)

    The Mexican fabric softener carried by Sam's club works well.
