Sweetened condensed milk cannot be substituted for whole milk. Condensed milk is milk that has been reduced and to which a great deal of sugar has been added. You can, however, substitute evaporated milk for whole milk. Just add the same amount of water as you have evaporated milk; example, 1 cup milk and 1 cup water. Hope this helps.

Condensed milk can be substituted for whole milk in recipes:
1 cup whole milk = 1/2 cup condensed milk + 1/2 cup water
As condensed milk is already sweetened, reduce the sugar in your recipe by 6 teaspoons for each change.

I believe you could only do this with certain types of recipes or you may have to just hope for the best outcome. Hopefully, you may also have a can of evaporated milk which is okay to substitute (1/1 milk/water ratio).

This is the answer most cooking sites will state:
