Soda Bottles for the Ice Chest

Living with Texas summers, we find ourselves using tons of ice and instead of getting expensive bags of ice, we fill up 2L cola bottles 3/4 full with water and freeze. We then use these in the cooler instead of ice and as they melt the kids love using the cold water for splashing each other or drinking. It has really worked great for us and actually lasts longer than the bagged ice did.

Michelle, you are so right about this! It's great isn't it?

We keep several of these in our freezer during hurricane season so that it will keep our freezer safer during power failure. Ice is very hard to come by after a hurricane!

Also, it's great to drop one or two of these into the bathtub with a feverish child. That way you can start with the water slightly warmer than tepid and cool it down more once the child is in the water. They don't fight the cool bath so badly if you do it that way.

These are also great to use when you go fishing to keep your fish nice and cool until you return home. (07/22/2004)
