From Interlocking to Natural: My Dreadlock Journey
ok got ya but why are you using spoonful's as measurements?
easiest way to do it is.. reuse the old bottle or any other bottle you got
since i used the big bottles which are close to 12 inches tall, i put 1 inch of soap and the rest water
it doesn't matter if you use spoonfuls, cups, gallons, quarts, ounces, bowls full, splashes, thimbles full, or if you can stand the taste, mouthfuls.
as long as the ratios once measured come within the 12-1 and 20-1 ranges your fine.
it doesn't have to be exact measures either just a "that looks about right" estimation of what you think 12-1 is
so, what you could do if say you bought the smaller bottle instead of big 1 is, take an empty gallon milk jug, or any larger closeable container, pour the entire bottle of bronners in, then fill the bottle 12 or more times with water pour it into the jug.
i always had 2 bottles of bronners in the shower 1 the full strength 1 the diluted, whenever the diluted 1 ran out id add 1 inch of bronners or about 1/12th of the bottle then fill with water (slowly or it foams like crazy)
ps many co-ops and health food places give a discount if you keep your bronners bottles and refill them
co ops especialy tend to have a bronners refilling station.
dr bronner originally intended that you buy abottle once then refill and reuse it forever (says so on the label if you ever bother to read it all)
so when the bottle you have now is used up use that s yoir dilution bottle
