    I love this guide! Thank you! I just measured out a capful of cleaner to figure out cost for a make and take, and mine is 2 tsp, not 1, though.

      Thank you for catching the typo. That should be 1 capful equals 1 Tbsp. We have corrected this on the blog post and in the downloadable guide.

      Thanks for writing.
