Wouldn't it be nice for the new millenium if everyone went metric.

It's a whole lot easier to think metric: 1/100 of a liter (1000 ml, just a
bit over a quart) is 10 ml.  And by some major coincidences between the
two systems, 1 tsp is 5 ml (for all intents and purposes).

So a scant 2 tsp bleach per quart of water or 2 tsp per liter.
