Milk is a such an essential part of everyone’s diet. So much so that sometimes we buy too much and are left staring at seven gallons of milk cluttering up our fridges. If you’ve ever been in that situation, here are some ideas to use up all that milk without worrying that it’s going to go bad.
1) Make A Facemask
Mix a quarter cup of milk with a few tablespoons of turmeric powder and spread it on your face. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse. You’ll feel instantly refreshed!
2) Thaw Fish
Sticking fish in the refrigerator can make it lose some of its flavour. Put the fish in a bowl of milk while it’s thawing and it’ll regain punches of flavour.
3) Clean Hands
If your hands are super dirty from gardening, mix some oats and milk together and rub the mixture into your hands for a few minutes. Wash it off and voila! Super soft, super clean hands!
4) Remove Ink Stains
If you’ve got a ink stain on your favourite pair of jeans or shirt, soak it in milk overnight. Then wash it and you’ll find the stain much easier to scrub out.
5) Scrambled Eggs
Pour a tablespoon or two of milk into your scrambled eggs mixture. It’ll make it creamy and delicious!
6) Use it as a moisturizer
If it’s good for the face, it’s good for the rest of your body. Rub some milk into your skin before a bath.
7) Shine Silverware
Put all your silverware in a bowl of milk for half an hour. Then, rinse it and it’ll be clean and shiny once more!
8) Make Pancakes
Bacon pancakes sound delicious, right? You’ll need a cup of milk for them!
9) Give Your Pet A Treat
Just because you don’t want to drink it doesn’t mean your dog or cat won’t. Give Fido a saucer of milk and he’ll follow you around with adoring eyes for the rest of the day.
