A Few Helpful Winter Hacks

Winter’s here, and along with cozy nights and festive cheer comes the need for one essential element: ice! Knowing how to manage your frozen goods is critical, whether you’re ordering bagged ice to prep for holiday gatherings, battling freezer burn, or weathering power outages. Let’s dive into some practical ice hacks that’ll keep you cool and prepared all season long!

Winterizing Tips

  • Thaw the Frost: Defrosting your freezer regularly (every 3-4 months) is crucial for optimal ice production. A thick layer of frost insulates the coils, making your ice maker work harder and produce less ice. So, grab a scraper and give your freezer some love!
  • Chill Like a Pro: Keep your fridge temperature between 35°F and 40°F – the sweet spot for efficient ice production. Bonus tip: avoid overcrowding your fridge! Air circulation is vital for good ice flow, so don’t cram those shelves like a holiday ham.
  • Ice Cube Tray Tetris: Ditch the flimsy plastic trays that crack and leak. Invest in durable, spill-proof trays that maximize space and freeze ice quickly. Silicone trays are popular for their flexibility and ease of popping out cubes.

Winter Events

  • Hosting a winter bash? Calculate your ice needs like a pro! Aim for 1 pound of ice per guest per hour for drinks and snacks. Don’t forget extra if you’re planning outdoor activities – ice melts faster in warmer temps.
  • Pre-freeze ice cubes in batches before your event to avoid a last-minute freezer frenzy. You might freeze flavored fruit juices or herbs in ice cubes for a festive touch.
  • Keeping food and drinks fresh during outdoor adventures is key. Pack your cooler with plenty of ice, and layer food strategically. Place frozen items like ice packs at the bottom, followed by drinks and perishable foods. Top it off with non-perishables like chips and snacks.

Your Emergency Ice Kit

  • Winter power outages can happen, and keeping cool during them is crucial. Assemble an emergency kit with ice packs, coolers, and bottled water you can freeze in a pinch.
  • Invest in reusable ice packs that can be frozen or kept at room temperature for hot or cold therapy. These versatile wonders can keep you cool during outages and soothe aches and pains year-round.
  • Get creative! Fill empty plastic bottles with water and freeze them horizontally for makeshift ice packs. 
  • Bonus: Add rubbing alcohol to the water to prevent cracking as they freeze.

With these winter ice hacks, you’ll be a master of the frozen game! Remember, keeping your cool starts with preparation, organization, and a little bit of icy know-how. So embrace the chill and have a frosty, fantastic winter!
