Dry Measure

Postby esorami » Sun Dec 02, 2007 4:43 am

I have to measure 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp baking soda in 1 cup of water every day. Is there a way I can make a quart of this dry mix instead of measuring out tsps at a time?
Then add 1 tsp of the mix to 1 cup of water. I tried using the conversion chart with no luck.

You can mix 1 cup of baking soda with 2 cups of solt to get 3 cups of your dry mix. Then you'll need to get 3/4 tsp of the mix in 1 cup of water every day.

Please note that you'll need to make sure you carefully mix solt and soda together so your dry mix becomes uniform. This may be pretty hard to do. If you fail to carefully mix the dry ingredients, you resulting solution may not containt the right proportion of solt and soda. So you might be better off not to bother with the dry mix. :)
