How to extend the shelf life of milk?

If you've bought a carton of milk but realize that you won't have time to use it before the expiration date, or it's already started to spoil, you should follow Becky's advice. She claims that adding a pinch of salt to a freshly opened carton of milk can stop the development of bacteria that cause souring.

It should also be remembered that milk in the refrigerator should be kept as cold as possible. Under no circumstances should you keep milk on the refrigerator door, as the temperature there is unstable.
