Tip of the week: How to get more from your milk

Rescue plants with it; Use it as a skin softener; Fight stains with it; Soothe burns with it; Buff shoes with it

Rescue plants with it. If a “powdery mildew” appears on your houseplants, mix one part milk with nine parts water and spray them weekly.

Use it as a skin softener. Before slipping into a warm bath, add one cup of milk. The lactic acid “really does a body good.”

Fight stains with it. Run for the refrigerator whenever you spill red wine on a tablecloth, shirt, or dress. Submerge the stained fabric in milk, squeeze out the excess moisture immediately, then launder as usual.

Soothe burns with it. Milk fat “calms inflammation and helps skin heal.” The next time you suffer a minor burn, cover it with a washcloth soaked in milk.

Buff shoes with it. Use milk to moisten a cloth and you can “buff dull patent leather back to gleaming glory.”
