	Dear Jeanie,
	I have always used distilled water.  Simply as a quality control issue.
Tap water is OK for washing, but some of the stuff that attempts to pass
for water that I've seen come out of lab taps means I'll go for distilled
water every time.  
	Using distilled water means 1 less variable & therefore a more consistant
& controlled outcome.
