Milk jugs do you throw them away? I was thinking about it and I'm going to fill my empty milk jugs with
water. I know the jugs still smell like milk even after a good rinsing but hey,,, You're going to want to flush
the toilet do dishes and lots of other stuff other than drinking it. So what would be wrong with having 50 gallons of water in jugs that you were going to toss out? Only takes a minute or two good habit to get into.
Maybe a drop or two of bleach in each jug? Does anyone know how to get the milk smell out?

If anyone has a tips on the subject of storing water in milk jugs please post it.
The dog needs water too.

I personally use way more of the dollar general fruit punch gallon containers than milk gallons, and Like Inor said, I have added some to my chest freezer. In Arkansas, we kept one in the freezer to add to our fish cooler.
They make good targets.

In all seriousness I do not know the concoction but my brother inserts a glass tube into a milk jug filled with other chemicals and went it is hit with a bullet it creates quite a fire, not an explosion but a pretty nasty blaze. That can be useful in certain circumstances.
Could you possibly list the ingredients here, I am a pyro at heart. And it would make a great target..
