by 1/2  (from 20% to 10%)
Remove 1/2 of the total contents from your container and set aside.

which will give you 10% Vinegar Solution.
Do the same for the portion of vinegar you set aside.
You will now have 2 containers of 10% vinegar.

Always pour the vinegar to be diluted INTO the water, not the other way around, to avoid a dangerous splash and burn. If you're not sure about dilutions, this site has a dilution calculator for liquid percentages.
