This project is to find a stable home-made recipe for an ice that is "colder than ice" (A.K.A Super Ice! (TM)). Ordinary ice freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, whereas using this recipe, I was able to maintain a stable 8 degrees Fahrenheit. However, this is only how cold my freezer gets, and 18% of the solution remained liquid, meaning that, if you had a colder freezer, you could achieve an even lower temperature (perhaps even subzero!).
Having Super Ice is very versatile whether on your long road trips or when you are trying to find a way to cool down after that game of softball in triple digit heat. I hope you enjoy!
Step 1: What You'll Need.
-1 cup of water.
-1/4 cup of lemon juice.
-4 tablespoons of salt.
-resealable sandwich bag.
Step 2: Shake It Up.
Put the lemon juice, water, and salt in the water bottle and shake it up.
The water bottle is just to make it quick and easy to stir. If you don't have access to a water bottle, you can stir, just be sure to do so thoroughly.
Step 3: Freeze It.
Pour the concoction into the resealable bag and throw it into the freezer. You can put a twist tie or rubber-band around the top to make it save shape, but it is more of a slush than a solid ice block, so it is very malleable.
Step 4: Use It.
Ice is a very versatile substance, and super ice is just as versatile but also, well, super! My favorite method is to hang it in front of the vents in your car to give it a much colder feeling. You can also flatten it and use it as a "floor" in your cooler.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
