ICE CUBES-Here Is What You Can Use Them For !!!

For beginning we are going to tell you that there is a simple way to make ice cubes quickly:Use HOT Water! Yup,hot water actually freezes more rapidly than cold! And when you are done making them read what you can use them for:

DIY air conditioner

No need to invest in a pricey air conditioner, and the power bill that goes along with it. Instead, place a bowl of ice in front of a fan. It really, seriously, works wonders.

Water plants

If you are going out of town for a few days, or even just have a hard time reaching a hanging plants, quench their thirst with some ice cubes. Add 5 or 6 to a larger plant.They’ll melt gradually, allowing the soil time to absorb the water.

Give sparkle to coffee pots, vases or bottles 

If you have a glass vessel with a small neck that’s hard to clean, employ ice. Add ice cubes, course salt, and lemon and swish and shake for a few minutes. The salt works as a mild abrasive, the lemon cuts grease, and the ice is the vehicle that gives the scrubbing momentum.

Skim the fat

To remove excess fat from soups, gravies and stews, you don’t need a dedicated fat separator, you can simply fill a ladle or stainless steel vessel with ice and skim across the top of the soup. The fat will harden on contact with the cold metal and will adhere to it for easy removal.

Reheat Rice with Ease

All too often, rice dries out when it’s reheated in the microwave. Remedy that by putting a few ice cubes on top of the bowl before you nuke it.

Take Your Salad Dressing to the Next Level

If you want your dressing to be creamier, put it in a sealable plastic container with an ice cube. Seal tightly, shake well and enjoy!

Remove chewing gum

One of the oldest tricks in the book of collective granny wisdom: Rub an ice cube on chewing gum stuck to fabric, let it freeze, and scrape off the mess with the edge of a spoon.

Wrinkle remover

If you are in a hurry to go out, but cannot get rid of those wrinkles on your clothes, then here is a handy tip for you. Rub an ice cube, wrapped in a soft cloth, over your wrinkly shirt, and after that iron the shirt.

Decrease bruising

Bruises forms when an impact breaks capillaries near the skin’s surface, allowing a small amount of blood to leak into the tissues under the skin. If you apply ice to the banged body part quickly, the chill will help to constrict blood vessels and will lessen the severity of a bruise and swelling. It’s best to get the ice on it while it’s fresh and still red, before discoloration begins. Do not apply ice directly to skin (wrap it in a cloth) and apply for up to 15 minutes or hour.

For Acne

Applying ice cubes on acne helps close the swollen pores, which would also prevent bacteria from further affecting the skin. Make sure that you use ice in a clean and fresh cloth. Rub ice wrapped in a clean cloth for 10 minutes every day, and you would see the effects soon.

For Brows

When you rub ice on your brows before going for threading or plucking, this would make them temporarily numb and make it less painful. Rubbing some more ice on your brows after threading or plucking would help in preventing redness on your areas.
