Where can I buy a milk bottle cooler?

Post Fri Aug 22, 2008 8:53 am

Hi there,

I've looked everywhere online for a milk bottle cooler - something for the milkman to leave the milk in when we are out at work, so that it doesn't spoil.

The trouble is, the majority of people now get their milk from the supermakets so have no need for a cooler I suppose. :roll:

Anyway - if anyone can point me in the right direction, I would be very grateful.

Thanks so much
Lynne

Hi, I'd ask your milkman - you might find that they sell them or certainly know someone who does. Good luck.

My milkman puts the milk in an old terracotta planter next to the front door.

There is no lid, but it is deep and does the trick......and cost nowt. :D

Please check your bonfire for sleeping hedgehogs before lighting it.
