We had a busy day going into Dungog to repair a tyre for the trailer and using the trip to visit the Op Shop, Dump Shop, Produce Merchant, Library and nursery whilst the tyre was being repaired. We are looking at building an egg incubator and were perusing the recycling places for some components. Picked up another spare tyre and rim for the trailer at the dump for $5. It was in the same condition as the one being repaired. The repair cost $22.

After collecting oysters there was a stop off at the dairy farm for milk which brings us to the title of this blog. The container for milk collection is a food grade 20 litre plastic drum. After emptying the milk into a 25 litre stainless steel pot the cleaning method is as follows.
Rinse the drum with cold water until the water runs clean.
Put in a couple of litres of hot water and a little detergent.
Shake vigorously and empty out the soapy water.
Rinse again with cold water until all the suds are gone.
Leave about half a litre of cold water in the drum.
Put in about a tablespoon of Sodium Metabisulphite and shake.
Store container and just rinse out before use.
Since using this cleaning technique there have had no contamination issues and the process is exceedingly fast.
