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.

Dry Measure

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. :)
