    Think it's something to do with the casein in the milk reacting with the lime often used in a Victorian tiling.
    Think it's mentioned in Spons workshop receipts published in the 1800s!

    When washing up, I often wonder whether you could use mashed potato or bean juice as a tile adhesive, as they normally dry, harden and stick to plates and bowls like s*** to a blanket.

    But condensed milk.... never heard of that one. But its fun to hear some of the old techniques and would love it if this was a true fact. Although wouldn't try it personally.

    As an alternative I'd try Weetabix for true sticking power

    My elderly neighbour used to use Baileys in coffee instead of milk or cream...
