I have a one gallon container. There are 4 qts. in a gallon. I need to mix a cleaning solution that requires 1 part solution to 5 parts water. How do I evenly fill my one gallon container with the solution/water mix? In other words how much of the quarts are water and how much are solution?

You want about 630 milliliters of cleaning solution and about 3.15 liters of water in every gallon. 1 U.S. gallon ? 3.785411784 liters. 3.785411784/6 ? 630 milliliters. The '6' is used because there are 5 parts water and 1 part cleaning solution for a total of 6 "parts".

Pardon me; that's probably 1/5 * 3.785411784 ? 760 ml.
