How to Convert Dashes to Teaspoons

To convert a dash measurement to a teaspoon measurement, multiply the salt volume by the conversion ratio. One dash is equal to 0.125 teaspoons, so use this simple formula to convert:

teaspoons = dashes × 0.125

The salt volume in teaspoons is equal to the dashes multiplied by 0.125.

For example, here's how to convert 5 dashes to teaspoons using the formula above.
5 dashes = (5 × 0.125) = 0.625 tsp

Dashes and teaspoons are both units used to measure salt volume. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
