That is mixing up a LOT of diluted working solution.  The concentrated 
form is stable, the diluted working solution isn't as stable.  For the 
typical backyard gardener you will only need to mix up maybe 100 ml at 
best, more likely less.  Just get an eye dropper and a plastic 1 oz 
measuring container from a garden supply store (used for measuring 
insecticides, etc), figure out how many drops it takes to fill the 
measuring container (use one oz bathroom plastic cups if need be) and 
then it's easy to figure out how many drops to use to get the dilution 
you want.

You don't want a 1 to 1,000 dilution as that is only 100 ppm.  The 
dilution should be about 1 to 100, a 1,000ppm concentration.
