On teaspoon is about 5 ml, so you can use standard kitchen measures (e.g.
1/4 tsp = 1.25 ml, 1 tbsp = 15 ml).  There's a rule of thumb about 20 drops
to the milliliter, but this is going to depend on things like the viscosity
of the solution, the aperture of the dropper, how hard/fast you are squeezing,
how much your hand is shaking, local wind speed, etc.
