    I know this topic has been discussed before. I did a couple of searches but didn't find what I was looking for. Some of my milk jars are getting a film on them. I assume this is what is called milkstone? I looked at Caprinesupply and Hoeggers detergents and am not sure what is best to use for this. There is alkaline detergents and acid washes. Which works for getting milk film off of the bottles and bucket?

    Thanks,
    Tiffany

    We use bleach for a lot of things including that film that just will not go away after washing. It works on so many surfaces -- glass, stainless steel, and plastic. It will even cut the film that gets on jars when you steam pressure can. --Linda

    If that don't work.....and all else fails....try a little lemon juice.

    Vinegar is cheaper than lemon juice and it works.

  5. There is also "desolve-it" that I get at the grocery stores. Bio degradable citrus stuff. Works on coffee pots too :biggrin! I had someone ask me when I got my milk pail and I told them three years ago. Looks like new. Tammy

    I use both the dry dairy soap and the foaming acid wash. Alternate each day.

    Hubby uses Cascade dishwasher soap to scrub out his coffee pot.
