The Breakings 2

One of our two matching milk jugs broke, probably from that fatal disease that all crockery and plastic materials eventually succumb to, dishwasheritis. Strong detergent and very hot water takes its toll.

It is terribly difficult to find a suitable replacement. Too big, too small, very ugly, neck too narrow. R has bought one but he hates it. It does the job but is big and clunky and not attractive. We are still looking.

  1. They say everything comes in threes. I hope for your sake that doesn't include breakages.

    1. I am sure there has been a third, Marie, but I can't think of one.

  2. Good luck. Some kitchen utensils can become old friends and it is sad to see them go. And frustrating finding a suitable replacement.

    1. EC, yes, a bit like when your favourite potato peeler disappears. We know where they go, out with the peelings.

  3. One day I would like to throw out everything in my kitchen and start with all new stuff but most likely never will.

    1. Merle, we try to get rid of things we don't use. At least put them away somewhere and so only have what we really need.

  4. Friends use a (shop bought) glass milk bottle - they think I'm being funny when I say 'that's the way milk used to come and the reason we have a jug on the table'.

    1. Cathy, yes, I remember tipping the bottled milk into a jug at times. Presentation was, still is really, so important.

  5. Hope you find a good milk jug replacement Andrew. It's hard to let go of some of our old and much used kitchen stuff.

  6. Don't wash fine porcelain in the dishwasher?

    1. Hels, our fine porcelain is put away, never to be used, because it is not dishwasher proof. Someone will find it when we are dead.

  7. I have two very nice milk jugs (large)new in the box. Since you have a BIG birthday coming up I now won't have to go looking for anything except nice wrapping paper and I'm sure I can get that at the op shop.

    1. Jah Teh, you haven't saved some old wrapping paper? It costs money to send such heavy things in the post. It would be a shame if you were to spend the money and we hated the jugs. Maybe send me a photo. But I am a little excited about the prospect of new milk jugs.

    1. Cro, mostly go, in my experience. Ah, you meant milk jugs. Yes, very much a first world problem.

  9. A milk jug? a whole separate jug just for milk? That's so....fancy :)
    I hope you find a good replacement.

    1. River, you have forgotten why our milk is in a jug and not a carton. There is a post in this.

  10. You could use your fine porcelain and wash by hand Andrew 😀

    1. Strayer, that is one word to use, I suppose. There could be worse.
