If you need to keep a large amount of canned beverages cold for a party, use your top load washing machine. Fill the top load washer with ice and your canned beverages. Keep the lid closed. When you're done, drain the washer.

That's a great idea! As we are about to replace our fridge, I can store some of the larger items there (was wondering how to fit everything in a cooler) until the new fridge gets cold enough! Thanks.

When looking for a container for cold drinks for your party, look no further than the washer (top loader). Fill it with ice and fill with drinks. The melting ice will go down the drain and no clean up.

Very clever. Thank you for sharing because I missed that! Imagine when you tell someone to go get a drink - out of the washing machine! lol (10/15/2008)
