How to prevent ice cubes from melting too quickly

5/5 - (2 votes)

Is it time for the pre-dinner drink? Then don’t forget to prepare a bunch of ice cubes. You’re probably used to putting them in a bowl to allow people to help themselves if they want to. However this is certainly not the best method because the water in the bowl accelerate other ice cubes’ melting process. If you want to prevent them from melting too quickly, here is the best method.

What you’ll need:

  • Ice cubes, of course
  • A salad bowl
  • A colander

Step by step:

1) Put your colander on the salad bowl.

2) Put all your ice cubes on the colander.


The result? Water is going to flow onto the bowl without ever touching the ice cubes. Your cubes will last way longer than ever before.
