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?

The '6' is used because there are 5 parts water and 1 part cleaning solution for a total of 6 "parts".
