Projects & Uses
Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide, which sublimates (changes from a solid to a gas) at a temperature of -78.5°C (-109.3°F). This property makes it useful for a variety of applications, including:
- Keeping drinks cold at a party
- Creating fog for a Halloween party
- Preserving food during travel or camping
- Keeping ice cream frozen in a cooler
- Creating a smoke effect for a music performance or theatrical production
- Cleaning grease or oil spills in a garage or workshop
- Cooling down hot tub water
- Treating injuries or sore muscles with cold therapy
- Reducing the appearance of wrinkles in clothing
- Transporting delicate items like flowers or live seafood.
It’s important to handle dry ice with caution, as it can cause frostbite if it comes into contact with skin, and inhaling the gas it produces can be harmful. It’s also important to store dry ice properly, as it can cause pressure to build up if it is sealed in a container.
