milk and its many uses

Who knew that milk wasn't just for your bones!? I found an article in Real Simple about the many uses of milk and thought they were so helpful I had to share.

Stain pretreater.
submerge the soiled part of the item in whole milk, ring out the excess and immediately wash.

Bath soak.
 add 1 cup of milk to a tub of warm water. The lactic acid in milk softens your skin while you are soaking.

Shoe shine.
moisten a cloth with milk and buff your dull patent leather back to a shine.

Burn soother.
the dreaded curling iron mishap? cover your burn with a washcloth soaked in whole milk. The fat in the milk calms inflammation and helps the skin heal.

Plant rescuer.
 REALLY! Mix 1 part milk and 9 parts water and spray on plants covered with powdery mildew. Repeat weekly to keep leaves fungus-free.

Away I got to soak in a warm milk infused bath!
