Always use the same spoons to measure, some teaspoons or table spoons may not be exactly the same.

1 tablespoon = 1/2 fluid ounce
1 fluid ounce = 6 teaspoons
1 fluid ounce = 2 tablespoons
1 ounce = 30 grams by weight
4 cups = 2 pints = 1 quart
2 cups = 1 pint
1 lb of Beeswax = approx. 16 fluid ounces
1 lb of Soy wax = approx. 18 fluid ounces
1 pound of solid wax (paraffin) = approx. 20 fluid ounces (2 & 1/2 cups)
