Just as Scott wrote, but I would add that people seem to use the tsp. as 
an approximation of 5 grams. If you are really concerned, but don't want 
to spend $50 on a scale that can measure tenths of a gram, just use a 
postage or food scale to measure out, say 20 or 30 grams of something 
and mix it with a liter of water. Then you know you have 10mg per tsp. 
or so (in the case of using 20 grams).

I use plastic syringes for dosing. I have one 5mL and one 60mL and they 
have always been useful.
