    Assume hard surface cleaning.  Recall such products are sold (esp. in southern  US and ethnicity)  on basis of three functions
    1) cleaning and that can be judged by you in practical testing, and
    2) fragrance - esp, in use
    3) "bloom" - the burst of white opacity when added to water (in a bucket)..

    These usually have additional surfactants and many have just enough pine oil to for the smell - sacrificing #3.

    25% of pine oil that you have.

    Because it is 80% and not 100%. So 25% if it equals 20% in final product as you want.
