Default Oxyclean Dilution Rate?

Oxyclean recommends 2-4 scoops per gallon as a "hard surface" cleaner. At that rate, I'd be using this stuff up pretty fast for bucket soaks, etc.

What do you guys use for your Oxyclean dilution rate?

I usually just use 1 scoop in my buckets are carboys let it sit for an hour or 2 and it works just fine

2 scoops in five gallons of hot water does the job for me.

I usually dump a couple scoops in for five gallons...I maybe go through a lot of it, but it is cheap, especially in bulk and it safes a lot of elbow grease, so I consider it a "loss leader" in my brewing supplies...So I try to find the cheapest price for the largest amount I can...
