It’s happened to the best of us: You’re hosting cocktails at your place in an hour and you realize you forgot to refill the ice trays. The world comes crumbling down.
Take a deep breath and relax. I have good news for you and it isn’t car insurance related. There’s a speedier way to get ice cubes to freeze.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
1. Fill your ice trays with hot water.
2. Put them in the freezer.
Your ice will be prepared much quicker than it would have had you used cold or lukewarm water.
WHY? SCIENCE BABY
The Mpemba Effect, which explains why hot water freezes quicker than cold water. Don’t believe me? Well, I’m too lazy to link it, just google “Mpemba Effect”.
A precautionary warning………Water doesn’t freeze instantly, so some reasonable time is needed for the ice to freeze. Keep calm and make some ice folks.
