Distilled vinegar, water, salt and garlic powder are the non-pepper ingredients in Frank's [ I just looked], so you could dilute it with those things. Probably vinegar and water would do it.

My advice probably isn't helpful. I would recommend dropping everything and going to buy more Franks.

Not franks as in frankfurters. Frank's as in the brand of hot sauce.

Tabasco is calm.

Why would you want it any weaker than it is already?

He isn't talking about frankfurter hotdogs. He's talking about Frank's brand hot sauce.

Vinegar and water will dilute your tobasco. Make a 50/50 blend of white vinegar and water. Dilute at a ratio of 4 drops tobasco:1 teaspoon dilution blend.

Try that for a tablespoon's worth (3 teaspoons total, plus the 12 drops total of tobasco, which should yield a total of 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon, give or take a couple of drops). To give it more of a "flavor" you can add a tiny fraction of a bit of fresh pressed garlic (like, a single drop of the garlic juice that comes out of the press).
