2.Soften your skin: In your water for bath, add one litre of milk in a bucket. The skin will look tender and will be as soft as a skin of a baby.

3 Stain of  milk..Rub milk and lemon juice on the cloth  to remove the ink stain.  Keep it over night.Then wash it  the next  morning. The stains will  disappear.

4.Getting  rid of bed bug:  Prepare a solution of water, milk and salt. Rub it on the sting. It may sting for a little while and then disappear completely.


5 Shine your leather shoes. Take an old  clean piece of cloth and dip it in milk. The shoe will shine instantly. It can be used to clean other  leather  items.


6.Shine your silverware  Soak  silverware in a bowl of milk for 30 minutes. Then wash  it softly  with  hot water and soap. Dry it with a clean  cloth. It will shine like new silverware.


7. Improve the taste of corn     Boil water and milk in a pot. and add corn to it  and boil till the corn is cooked. It will taste very yummy.

11.Cracks  on china dishes  Put the cracked china and porcelain dishes in a big pot,add two cups or more milk and boil it for one hour on slow  heat. Then wash in plain water and dry them. Crack marks will not be visible.


12.Get rid of  sun burns Mix milk with a bit of water and smear on the painful area.For burns that cover large areas, a good idea is to soak your clothes in a mixture of milk and water and wear them for faster healing of  the skin.
