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.

i need to use 3/8 of a cup of powdered soup mix to 1L of water. My measuring cup does not have this marked. And I do not have a dry measure cup set. Could some one maybe tell me how many tbsp. are in 3/8 of a cup. Please Help!

One cup is 16 tablespoons, so you will need six tablespoons to make 3/8ths of a cup. Coincidentally, there are eight ounces to the cup, so you could also use three fluid ounces, if your measuring cup has those measurements, and get the same amount.
