1. Stain Pretreater
No use crying over spilled…wine. If you dribble some red on a shirt or dress, submerge the soiled part in whole milk, squeeze out the excess immediately, then launder as usual. (If the item is dry-clean only, leave it for the pros.)
2. Bath Soak
Add 1 cup of milk to a tub of warm water before you slip in to zone out. The lactic acid in milk softens skin –so it really does a body good!
3. Shoe Shine
Moisten a cloth with milk and buff dull patent leather back to gleaming glory – minus harsh polish fumes.
4. Burn Soother
Curling-iron mishap? Cover minor burns with a washcloth soaked in whole milk. The fat in the milk calms inflammation and helps skin heal.
5. Plant Rescuer
Mix 1 part milk with 9 parts water and spray on plants dotted with powdery mildew. Repeat weekly to keep leaves fungus-free.
