    For those of you like me, who have a few different size spray bottles, here is the math to figure out your total percentage of IPA in your mix.

    X(Y/Z)

    Where
    X= The percentage of your IPA
    Y= Amount of IPA in ounces added to your spray bottle
    Z= Total volume of spray bottle in ounces

    Let's use Mike's formula as an example. 4oz of 91% IPA in a 32oz spray bottle gives us a total percentage of IPA of 11.3%.
    .91(4/32) = .11375 or 11.357%

    So if we were to use a smaller, say 22oz bottle we can now figure out how much IPA to add to achieve our target of 10%.
    .91(3/22) = .12409 or 12.409%
    So, we get 12.4% IPA when we use 3oz of 91% IPA diluted in a 22oz spray bottle.
    To add to Godspeed's great explanation, I will attempt to complicate it.

    Have you ever been in a position where you knew what dilution % you wanted to achieve, but didn't' know how much IPA to add to the water?

    (YZ)/X=

    Where
    X= The percentage of your IPA (ex. .5 = 50%)
    Y= Dilution ratio you want (ex. .5 = 50%)
    Z= Total volume of spray bottle in ounces

    You have 91% IPA in a 32oz spray bottle and you want it diluted to 10%.

    Simply put (.10x32)/.91= 3.5oz; you would need 3.5oz of IPA in the 32oz bottle. Fill it up with some water and boom! 10%

    Fiddle around with it; it's super easy and super fun!!!

    Check on learning

    How many ounces of IPA would I need I have 75% IPA with a 16oz bottle and I want it diluted to 25%?

    ~5.3 oz, thanks for that. Good information!

    Re: How to Mix IPA for Inspecting Correction Results

    "50% IPA
    To mix a 32 ounce Spray Bottle
    8 ounces, (or ˝ of a 16 ounce bottle) will make 32 ounces of 12.5% IPA to Water solution. Get a 32 ounce container and pour in 8 ounces, (or ˝ of a 16 ounce bottle) of the 50% IPA then fill the container up with water and you get 32 ounces of 12.5% solution."


    I think with 50% IPA, will just mix 50/50 with water which results to 25% solution. Then, transfer half of this 25% solution to another bottle then simply mix again with water 50/50, so it will yield to 12.5% solution right?
