Have you ever had a cooler full of regular ice turn into a watery, melted mess?
Dry ice is the answer!
Dry ice is VERY cold. (-109.3 degrees Fahrenheit, to be exact.)
Since it’s made of solid carbon dioxide, when it sublimates it turns directly into CO2 gas – no liquid mess.
Packing a cooler with dry ice is simple. Remember not to let the dry ice touch your skin, as direct contact can cause injury. Use gloves or tongs instead. Also, avoid storing your dry ice in an air-tight container and always use it in a well-ventilated area. More tips here.
