you know, mike, anything under half a gram is really not something to worry about keeping track of. being off 5mg one way or the other in a drop of SSKI is not critical. more important would be to make sure to get enough iodine. your body will tell you all about that.
i like to measure for the accuracy of the liquid, but you are right. the KI in the mixing bottle does not disappear until i reach the full mark. i suppose i could do it the easy way and make sure some KI is left in the bottom undissolved before decanting it but the result is the same - saturation.
i think Iodine supplementation is the easiest part of self health. try putting together a decent diet these days. lol
