Expired milk might sound gross--but turns out it has a secret cleaning use. Here, how to get some extra mileage out of that sketchy 2 percent that’s a couple days past its expiration date.
What you need: Expired milk that has neither an odor, nor is coagulated.
What you do: Soak a rag or paper towel with it, then wipe down marble, lacquered or wooden surfaces (like backsplashes, countertops and butcher block kitchen carts). Follow up with a damp cloth.
Why it works: Milk’s acid fights dirt and grime, but the overall substance will leave surfaces moisturized and lustrous.
