Milk In Microwave?

When i put milk into my microwave it starts shaking and then literally explodes out of my cup and leaves a mess. Why does this happen only to milk and not water and other stuff?

It shouldn't, you're probably leaving it in there way too long. Try 10-15 seconds. Warming up milk is very common, especially for putting young kids too sleep.

Milk will also boil over more easily than water when heated in a pan on the stove. Not sure why, but I'm careful to not let it happen because it's not fun to clean up. I'm sure you could research it on the internet.

Microwave ovens warm just three things: water, fat and sugars. Milk contains all three whereas water contains only 1 (strangely enough, it just happens to be water).
