Please tell me I’m not the only one who frequently finds nasty, old sippy cups full of curdled milk!!!
We recently left our favorite Contigo cup at church one Sunday morning. We thought we would pick it up the next time we were there, but we forgot. And then we forgot the next time as well. Finally, two weeks later, we remembered the cup. It was partially filled with milk and was absolutely putrid. It’s a $17 cup (and worth every penny, in my opinion), so I was not about to just throw it away!
We washed it. And washed it. And washed it. No matter how many times we washed it with soap and water, it still stunk. Even being washed on the sanitizing cycle in our dishwasher didn’t do the trick. It’s stainless steel, after all.
And then, like manna from Heaven, I suddenly remembered the magical cleaning powers of white vinegar…
I thought that maybe, just maybe, this might do the trick.
So I filled the cup to the top with white vinegar and also filled the lid. I let it sit overnight.
And guess what???
IT WORKED! NO MORE STINKY SIPPY CUP!
So…the next time you nearly vomit from the perils of curdled milk in a sippy cup with a stench that must be otherworldly…go grab you some white vinegar!
