As the weather gets hotter, you are going to be filling up those ice cube trays. There are so many uses for ice, such as cooling your drinks, sucking on them to cool you down, or just rubbing them on your neck when it gets really hot.
But I have found some uses for ice other than just cooling you down that, well, are pretty cool.
Ice can get gum off just about anything. Put an ice cube on the gum and wait for the gum to harden, and then scrape it off. If you get gum on your clothing, you can just put your clothing in the freezer.
Isn’t it disappointing when you microwave your rice and it’s all dry. Well, just put an ice cube in the centre of the rice and cover with plastic, and you will get delicious, moist rice. But be sure to poke holes in the plastic to avoid an explosion.
Want to know the secret to a creamy homemade salad dressing? It’s so simple. Just put an ice cube in your oil-based salad dressing and shake it up. The ice will make the oil cool, and that will make it slightly harden, which will make a thicker, creamier dressing.
A simple way to get rid of the fat from your soup is to drop an ice cube into the warm soup. Leave in for a few seconds, and then scoop it out and it should have the fat sticking to it. If your soup is large, use more ice cubes.
If you are not fond of the aftertaste medicine leaves in your mouth, just suck on an ice cube after taking the medicine. This will numb your taste buds and diminish the taste.
So now you have more reasons to keep your ice cube trays stocked all year round.
