# How to measure 30 ml without a measuring cup?

Are you tired of trying to measure out 30 mL with no measuring cup in sight? Do you find yourself always just guessing and hoping for the best? Well, fret not my dear friend, because I have compiled some valuable tips on how to measure out that perfect 30 mL without any measuring cups or spoons!

## Tip #1: Use your hand

Believe it or not, your hands can come in handy (pun intended) when measuring out liquids. First things first, make sure your hands are clean and dry before proceeding. Once they’re good to go, form a small cup by holding one hand horizontally with fingers tightly together making an indented shape. Pour liquid into the cavity until it almost overflows then hold steady for five seconds before pouring off.

## Tip #2: Use a teaspoon

Nowadays we’re all so used to using tablespoons and teaspoons while cooking that we forget they can also be used as makeshift measuring tools. If you don’t own any traditional measurement utensils at home but still want accurate measurements such as for dosages of medicines etc., simply use one levelled teaspoon which comfortably holds about 5 ml of liquid.

###### Side Note

Did you know that there is something called dyscalculia which is sometimes referred to as “maths dyslexia”? It’s a condition where people experience challenges relating/processing figures/numbers often leading them unable/unwillingly hesitant towards learning/solving calculations.

## Tip #3: Add Water to Small Container

If none of the above methods work for you..just grab whatever container is closest! Fill it up until there’s enough space left at the top- approximately half centimeter from rim- pour away excess water leaving only required liquid necessary i.e; voila, perfectly measured amount sitting right in front!

If you often deal with measuring liquors or oils such as olive oil, try using a shot glass to measure out the perfect amount.

## Tip #4: Count Your Drops

If your recipe specifically mentions to add 30 mL of liquid in it then inhale and exhale some air in eyedropper before taking dip into solution. This way you end up collecting exactly one drop every time which is approximated to be around 0.05ml, do this until you’ve counted out about 600 drops – sounds tedious but for the perfectionists among us I suppose anything is worth getting that perfect pour!

###### Side Note

Another neurodiversity condition many may not know about is called Dyspraxia which isn’t well known even though it’s closely associated with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It affects both children & adults affecting multiple systems(nodes/ nerves) rather than just one part of system like ADHD causing issues relating tasks needing coordindation like motor skills/hand-eye coordination etc.

## Tip #5: Eye-Balling

Last but certainly not least, if none of these methods work for you..just go ahead trust yourself and wing it! There’s no harm done by simply guesstimating an estimate; at worst will cost hefty over-indulgent/not enough cooking delights when carried away . Use past experience or perhaps compare volume in ratio sense by observing other items nearby maybe there’s something else within arm’s reach that usually comes half-filled/packed with same amount?

With all these innovative tips under our belt we can now feel confident when trying new recipes anytime.(insert festive spirit here)Cheers!,to happy cooking adventures without any borrowed amounts from unassuming neighbours next door or spoiling ingredients unknowingly&later torn between cursing self/others (Insert ominous laughter)
