I'm glad that you guys found it helpful!  I wish I could say that I was the genius that came up with it but alas no.  I read it somewhere a long time ago but when I realized that it wasn't very common knowledge I thought I would share.

It does make a huge difference, DMC also advises to use this method on their site (which is how I learned about it).
