OK, when I added laterite, it was this powder stuff and if you rinsed it, then it would have turned to mud.. I understand what you have, and if it says to rinse it on the directions, then that is probably the best thing to do (duh!).
Pooky's suggestion is a good one. I would try adding a little of the laterite first just using the directions, and if that seems to cloud your water, I would try the ice cube thing.
