I need help mixing sulfur powder n petrolium jellie properly it says 10% of sulfur 6% for child, the petroleum jellie jar is 13 oz so i figured:
8 fl. oz.= 1 cup
16oz would be two
10% of (one US cup)= 23.6588237 milliliters
1 US Tablespoon = 14.7867648 Milliliters
so I need 10% of A cup n a half I divided the 23 by two n got 11
adde 11 to 23 n i figured I need 34milliters of sulfur mixed into this jar or so is my guess, and if 1 table spoon is 14 so I figured I put two table spoons its about close not really 10% but ill be aplying it to my children and it says I need 6% for them I think its past th 6% thou, Im im kinda worried, I will b using it myself I dont mind using it th extended 14 days I rather go low n use it prolonge than go high n chemicaly burn my skin.

My question is dose 2 tablespoons per petrolium jar sound about rigth? gotta get a second oponion n if your math savy please do th calculations n give me an estimate of how much to mix in, thank you

*10% for adult and 6% for child

You should be measuring in grams with a lab scale. Weigh out 100 grams of Vaseline and then add either 10 grams of sulfur powder for 10% or 6 grams of sulfur powder for 6%. That's the proper way to do it.
