Saving Water In Milk Jugs

I was told to use a couple of drops of bleach in a old milk jug to save water and to keep it from going”skunky” after just a short time.We tend to lose power in my neck of the woods and I don’t want to spend money on bottled water or have to replace the water I do save so often. Anyone have any other ideas?

  1. So far, so good, with the bleach.
    I prefer glass milk bottles for my water storage. You do have to be careful about breakage, but it just feels SO much cleaner than the plastic. Plastic is porous and I doubt you ever really get all the bacteria from the last of the milk out…GOOD luck!

  2. Many survivalist websites and long term storage websites say not use plastic milk jugs. The plastic in them is made to break down over time which could cause leaking- besides the question of whether you got all the milk out. These kind of sites recommned 2 liter pop bottles or glass bottles. You can also “can” water. Fill clean jars leaving 1/2″ headspace. Hot water bath 15 min or so. I often do this when I’m canning those last couple of jars of something- I fill the canner slots that are leftover with cans of water. Hope this helps!
