While looking for helpful household hints, I came across a website titled, " Bob Allison's Ask Your Neighbor." This website offered many answers to questions you may find useful around your home when it comes to repair or making tasks easier.
One thing, which had always bothered me, had to do with conversion of measurements when it came to cooking. For instance you buy a #303 can, how many cups is inside? It's easy when the can states 8 oz, or 16 oz, but some measurements aren't as readily converted. For example weight ounces aren't the same as fluid ounces.
In addition to the following conversion information, was a litany of other information available at the website via: Bob Allison's Ask your Neighbor - Helpful Household Hints.
CONVERSION CHART FOR CUP MEASUREMENTS
8 oz. = 1 cup
Picnic size = 1 1/4 cups
#300 can = 1 3/4 cups
#1 tall can = 2 cups
#303 can = 2 cups
#2 can (20 oz. can) = 2 1/2 cups
#2 1/2 can = 3 1/2 cups
#3 can = 4 cups
#10 can = 12-13 cups
The website also provided conversions to grams, weights and measures, and other conversion tables useful around the house.
