Wow!  A question asked in May is answered in July!  I love this site!!
I'll do you one better and comment in October!

I recently did the water-down-the-carb trick, too, and it works great.  Use a plastic water bottle with one of those pop-top, nipple-type ends (like on a bottle of liquid dish soap).  It's much easier to control the rate of flow into the carb that way.

Be VERY careful about pouring water down your carb!!! Water does not compress anywhere near as much as a gas, and so if you overdo it with the water, something has to compress - and that usually means a rod bearing and even a bent connecting rod.
 
Jet engines (like the ones on a B-52) use water injection because they are a simple rotating assembley, but engines with rods and pistons don't car for it too much! Has anybody ever seen a car that was in a flood last more than a week before it threw a rod right out the side of the block? I was forced to live in Mississippi for a few years, and there were tons of FLOOD cars on the used car lots that were sold to poor unsuspecting Air Force kids. They had to pony up even more $$$ for new engines shortly after buying these cars.
 
Use like to use a MIST (windex bottle), a little bit at a time, and I give it enough time between squirts for the idle to clear up.

yeah. . .
 
gradual but steady on a engine about 1000 rpm usually does the trick.  It will let you know when you put too much in by breaking up.  All you want to do is casy allot of steam.  The super heated steam fractures the carbon and whisks it away so it can clog the converter.  LOL   (It will burn off. . .  )
