Beats Tour (in ear). They sound decent, but I'm not sure I like the fit. Can't seem to get a comfortable seal.

Same ones I got. I like them but don't think they were worth the price I paid. I think their worth probably what you got them for though. It took a little bit before I could find a comfortable fit on them. I had to try just about all the different ear pieces before I found the right one for me.

Update:
Well at least you've got the weekend coming up to get rested and back to normal.
Downside is that by the time you will probably be feeling better it'll be Monday again.

Update: Still haven't gone to bed even though I'm exhausted. Must. Turn. Off. Computer.

You need to add a tablespoon of lemon juice. Phosphate has been removed from automatic dishwasher detergent sold in the US and a bit of citric acid in place will really improve the end result

Oooh! You are full of exciting information today! How about apple cider vinegar 5% acid, (or just regular white vinegar)? Would that make the trick? I have that much more available.

They just don't make 'em like they used to. Dishwashing detergents, that is. Really.

Thanks to environmental protection laws passed in 16 states, dish detergent manufacturers have been forced to remove powerful cleansing agents called phosphates from their formulas nationwide. The result? Detergents that don't clean, reported Tampa Bay Online.

Local appliance repairman Don DiChristopher told the news agency that technicians were out in droves to frustrated customers who had already thrown out several sets of dishes or replaced their machines altogether, unable to get dishes clean.

"Holy cow, we got bombarded, our phone literally rang off the hook with calls," DiChristopher said, noting that his service received hundreds of calls shortly after the switchover to phosphate-free cleansers was completed in July. "We started turning down repair calls."

But never fear: A healthy "black market" of sorts exists for full-strength dishwashing liquids with the chemical. Thanks to a loophole in the eco-rules, the phosphate ban doesn't apply to commercial facilities like restaurants or hotels, so bulk packages of detergent are available at supply companies -- who sell their products on eBay, of course. Really.

The problem is phosphates. Sodium tripolyphosphate was something of a wonder ingredient, helping to remove food and grease, maintain pH, inhibit corrosion and more; it made up as much as 35% of certain detergents, explains the Chemical & Engineering News.
You can still buy Sodium tripolyphosphate.

It might work but I think the odor from the citric acid will be much more tolerable. I have well water and can tell you in my case a squezze of lemon or lime juice in the detergent has been working great. You can buy a plastic squeze lemon at the liquor store

The article is from about a week ago. So this regulation is new? I just looked at my Cascade box and it says "this contains no more than 6.4% phosphate in for form of phosphorous." Nowhere near that 30% mentioned in the article and there is no list of ingredients so I couldn't tell if Sodium tripolyphosphate is or was there.

I'm using the Cascade "with Dawn".

Should I go and empty the shelves of my local supermarket??

Why would people throw away dish sets??? They forgot how do their dishes by hands from time to time?
