Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Converting ounces to "spoon" measurements... HELP!

If the item is 16 liquid ounces, and the dilution ratio is 100 to 1, how many TEASPOONS or TABLESPOONS does one add to one gallon.

Help... I really need this info. :o :oops:

I'm a little confused as to what you are asking.
1 fl oz = 2 Tablespoons = 6 teaspoons
1 gallon = 128 fl oz.

If you wish to mix 1 gallon at 100:1, you need 1.28 ounces

So measure 1 oz in a measuring cup (or 2 Tablespoons).
You still need another 0.28 ounces x 6 teaspoons/oz = 1.68 teaspoons. You could measure 1.5 or 1.75 with standard spoon sets. so 2T, 1 + 1/2 +1/4 t

Better yet, don't make a full gallon. Use 1 oz product, 99 ounces (12 cups 3 oz) water to make 100 oz. at 100:1.
(12 cups is also 3 quarts)

Still better, in metric, dilute 40 mL of product to 4 L with water (just a little over a gallon if you have room, or 35 mL to 3.5 L is a little less than a gallon.
