I will start by saying we currently have in our care 2 poddy lambs that lost their mum to the drought in western QLD. So on Monday my little boy is playing happily by myself while the baby is asleep (ahhh peace and a chance to do some house work). I head outside to track him down and hang the washing out. What a sight greets me as I entered the laundry – the lambs milk powder from wall to wall (the dogs are very happy about this – licking it up furiously). So we have a quiet chat about not touching the powder, I go to the shed for the toddler proof container my husband was supposed to put the powder in on the weekend and start sweeping when I notice that the washing machine is turned off and the powder dispenser is slightly open (front loader). Oh no. He loves opening and shutting that thing. He has also watched me multiple times putting the powder in. I close my eyes and open it up. Chockers full of milk powder (this stuff is $85 for 16kg). I scrape as much out as possible but unfortunately its jam packed down the hole leading into the machine. So nothing for it but to run a full cycle through the machine. Anyone else ever made milk in their washing machine?
