2 regular soups spoons = 1 tablespoon
Depending on how big your regular soup spoon is.... I just went out and bought a set of measuring spoons... it works ;)

I dunno.. I think it is not an exaCT SCIENCE, BUT I do believe it should be ok right. It is not the amount, but the concept that should be working...

1 tablespoon = 15 ml US measurement.

The Nyquil and other med cups are ideal. Usually have measurements in both metric and cubic.

I use a standard Australian household tablespoon, which is 20mls and 175 calories (as is a measuring tablespoon in this country). This is is entirety of my maintenance oil dose currently. I think of the oil in terms of calories as well as measurements. I realise that when Americans talk about a tablespoon of oil,  they are referring to a dose that is 5mls less than a tablespoon of oil is for me.

At first I dutifully measured out a TBSP with a measuring spoon.  But now I just pour what I think looks like a TBSP in the bottom of a cup, and gulp it down with some water.  And it still seems to be working.  So I don't think it's important to be super-precise, at least it isn't for me.

I found the four ounce Gemco Measuring Glass at an outlet mall. It's got ounce and tablespoon measures.
I measure out the oil, and then fill the cup with water.

Also found it online here.

I have a similar measuring glass that I bought at Walmart.  Works great.

I am glad to read this. I had realized something wrong because according to the ELOO bottle there are only 34 TBSP servings. I realized my 1st bottle lasted way longer than that. I need to get a better measuring device .

I use a mini-measuring cup to take 2tbs at a time.
I think it's preferable to using a spoon, since you can take the oil as a single quick "shot" --- and then chase it down with some H2O.

That's a great idea!  I'm going to CVS so I'll pick one up.

120 calories of oil = 1 TBS = 15ml = 3 tsp
