One cup is 8 ounces.
@tom_g How’d you figure 12?

@tom_g is correct, if he meant “teaspoons”.

Google is your friend in this regard. If you type the google search “2 fl. oz.” one of the top links will be (depending on how your results are arrayed) the equivalence of fluid ounces to other measures, including metric and “table measures” such as teaspoons and tablespoons.

4 tablespoons equals 2 ounces. Much faster than using a teaspoon.

A quarter-cup is faster still, but we’re answering the question that was asked.

CWOTUS (18787 )

@CWOTUS Right, but considering the details, it seems the OP just wants to get the right amount of water. I was just trying to help. No need to get snippy.

I just poured on some water from the sink. result: didnt work at all lol

2 fl oz (2 table spoons/1 fl oz)(3 teaspoons/1 table spoon)

= 12 teaspoons.
===============@tom_g Is correct.

Perhaps you needed deionized water, distilled water.

@illusionslies Ha! In many instances, size does matter.

I know you didn’t ask this, but some friendly advice. For future occurrences, whether they be hair preparations or cake mixes, get yourself a measuring cup. It holds 8 fluid ounces of water, so even though it may or may not have a 2 ounce marking on it, ¼ of a cup is the same as 2 ounces.

There are 30 ml in an ounce and a tsp is 5 ml so 6tsp to an ounce and for 2 ounces that would be 12 tsp.

Very good dimensional analysis!

A good chemistry talent.

Neodarwinian (2978 )

The two things I remember for doing this type of problem is are that there are 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon and 2 tablespoons in a fluid ounce. That works out to 6 teaspoons per fluid ounce and 12 teaspoons for 2 fluid ounces.
