Ice Cube Trays

 


Good Monday morning to you!

Today we are talking ice cube trays...

Now I am sure that in your day to day
life you have said to yourself 

Self:  "What else can I do with this
thing besides make ice?"

Well, I am here to answer that question.

Freshen your drain--
Fill a tray with white vinegar and citrus
peels. Freeze, then grind a cube in the
your garbage disposal when the drain
starts getting smelly.

Mix paint--
Use the tray to keep paint separate
for touchups  and small craft projects.

Tidy your junk drawer--
Gather those tiny items rolling around
your drawer. Use the tray sections for
things like tacs and paperclips.

Keep herbs fresh longer--
Freeze herbs in oil so you have an
instant start to sauteing foods.
**I would use a different color tray
to remind myself that this was an
herb tray NOT an ice tray.

Make wildflower seed bombs--
Mix two parts potting spoil with
five parts pottery clay and one part
water. Add local,  noninvasive seeds
and press the mixture into the sections
of the tray. Dry for one to two days and
store in a shady place before sowing.

Summer always reminds of the times as
a kid, we would make Kool-Aid and pour
the Kool-Aid into and ice tray, freeze and
viola Kool-Aid cubes. One of the best things
about summer!!
Now I suppose you could make "adult cubes"
if you know what I mean. :)

Now you know what to do with those darn
trays.


See you Wednesday!!

  1. Mercy, if I only had an ounce of your creativity! I just let the darn things sit filled with water or empty, so your suggestions are great, as is your background here, summery and bright! Thanks!

  2. We recycled popsicle sticks (broke them in half) and made ice pops (lemonade, iced tea, kool aid). Enjoy your week!

  3. I haven't owned an ice tray, in decades... **smile**.
    I need to buy one though, as I've been wanting to make olive oil/herb cubes for cooking with.
    Great ideas here!

  4. That's a cute ice cube tray. I like the idea of olive and herbs for cooking. And I just love your background of flowers and butterflies and polka dots. Makes me happy!

  5. Thanks for the compliments!
    The trays are so easy to use unlike the old kind. You just wet the back and push each little colored spot and out the cubes come. Dollar Tree has them.
    I really like the background it is fun!
