House cleaner sprayer bottle estimating

I have one of those plastic bottles you screw on the end of a garden hose. Is there a way to at least approximately figure out what proportion of concentrate you're spraying (TSP, bleach, Simple Green, other cleaners)? The instructions are useless, primarily written for the manufacturer's fertilizers.

IMO you would be better off with a pump up garden sprayer. Both the chemical pick up on a pressure washer and your siphon bottle dilute the cleaning agent too much. I know you probably want to avoid using a ladder but getting up close will give you better control and ultimately, a better job.
