How much salt to put in water bottle?

Post by Neemie » Sat Aug 11, 2018 3:19 pm

I have the Instant Ocean sea salt, and it says "Use 1/2 cup of Instant Ocean per each U.S. gallon of water."

Thing is, I just mix it into water bottles. I don't have a jug.

Normally a water bottle is 16.9 FL OZ (1.05 PINTS) 500mL (just writing from what I see)

So how much salt do I add to the bottle? I don't want to risk putting in too much.

Thank you!

One tablespoon of salt for every one pint (bottle) of water.
