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?
Back to brewing! It's been too long!!

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...
