    vicki, in another thread you mentioned the milk jugs you use and like. I think you said Dahl.com was the web--is that correct, because I can't get it to come up? Also do you re-use them and if so how do you wash them and how long are they holding up for you? I think you said 1/2 gal. size?
    thanks so much.

    Not Vicki, but we store our milk in 1/2 gallon wide mouth glass jugs. They work great for us.

    thanks, we use jars and glass jugs right now too I was just hoping for a 'freezable' milk 'jug' and I think vicki mentioned that she is using some this year and likes them.

    dahltech.com I use the Ball 1/2 gallon glass jugs for myself, but not for customers because they never return them, or give me back mayo jars :) Vicki

    I use 1/2 gal jars as well. For freezing, I dump 1/2 gallon into a 1 gallon freezer bag.

    Many of my customers bring water jugs. If they have had only fresh water you know they are clean. Walmart has 1 gallon water for 67 cents. the milk freezes well in these but they are not reuseable
