How I Clean the Milk Machine


Fill 2 gallons of lukewarm water and run through. Dump out.img_3372.jpgFill 2 gallons of hot water and add 1oz “Dairyland Chlorinated Pipeline Detergent”; run through.

Scrub inside of stainless milk bucket in places not covered by solution. Take off rubber gasket and swish in solution; scrub inside of lid.

Dump out, making sure to pour from both sides.

Repeat steps 2-4 but with ½ oz “Dairyland Milkstone Remover and Acid Rinse” and twice a week use 1oz per 2 gallons instead.

Hang hoses to dry and shine stainless steel milk bucket with white vinegar before placing it upside-down on drying mat. Total time: 15 minutes.

*I buy the chemicals in 5 gallon buckets and re-use the smaller jugs. I calculated the price and it’s actually less costly than using bleach/dish soap/vinegar. And I have the added security of knowing the chemicals are safe for the hoses, approved for milk sales, and our milk lasts 10 days in the fridge.
