4 way to use spoiled milk

Tip 1 – Remove limescale deposits
Acidic milk dissolves lime deposits very well. Therefore, you should put the milk in the toilet and let something act there. Then rinse and rework with the toilet brush. Of course, you can also use it to remove the lime stains on the sink, as long as the smell doesn’t bother you too much.

Tip 2 – Dispel meadow mice (voles)
One who doesn’t like the smell of sour milk at all is the meadow mouse or vole. If you have mouse tracks in the bed and lawn in the garden, dig a hole to open the track, add the sour milk and put soil back on it. That should drive the mouse away. In this way, you can also expel moles.

Tip 3 – Remove blueberry stains
Blueberry stains can be removed from garments with the help of acidic milk. Simply place the dirty garment in a tub and add acidic milk over it. You can apply the acidic milk only to the stains. Let everything work well. Then rinse with lukewarm water and wash as usual. If the stains have already dried up, then it is best to leave the acidic milk in place overnight. In this way, you can also remove great ink stains.

Tip 4 – Clean silver jewelry
With acidic milk you can also clean silver jewelry. Place the jewelry in a bowl and pour over it with sour milk. It’s best to let it work overnight. Then rinse well with warm water. The silver jewelry should shine again really nicely.
