Use Washing Machine as Cooler

When you have a party or get together, put your washing machine to work. Fill it a quarter full with cold water. Add a bag of ice and lots of cold drinks. Do this early in the day. The drinks stay cold for hours. After the party, take out any leftovers and throw the tablecloths, towels, napkins, etc. in the cold water, add soap, and turn it on. All cleaned up!

For an outdoor party, use a wheelbarrow to put your ice in. Just add enough ice to cover one third of the height of the wheelbarrow and add your canned drinks. This is handy and portable. When finished, just dump the melted ice water onto your plants or grass.

I use my washing machine as a fridge when Hurricane Hugo came through SC. Works great.
