Handling Dry Ice Safely

Although dry ice is relatively user-friendly, it does need to be handled with care to avoid injury. First and foremost, keep dry ice away from unsupervised children.

Here are a few safety reminders for using dry ice:

  • Children: Never leave children unattended near dry ice.
  • Ventilation: Always use dry ice in a space that’s well-ventilated.
  • Handling: Never touch dry ice with your bare skin. Instead, wear cloth or leather gloves when handling dry ice. Oven mitts and towels can also be used.
  • Storage: Use an insulated container to store your dry ice. The thicker the container, the longer your dry ice will last. However, never store dry ice in an airtight container. The sublimation (going from solid to gas) of the dry ice could cause the container to expand or even explode. Also be sure to store dry ice in a well-ventilated area.
  • Disposal: Don’t throw dry ice down the garbage disposal, sewer, or garbage chute. Leave it in a well-ventilated area and it will sublimate (change from solid to gas) until it’s completely gone.

Use Dry Ice Beyond Halloween

Dry ice isn’t just a novelty item. It has a lot of practical uses. It’s commonly used to ship frozen food or medical products. So even once Halloween is over, you’ll find it useful when you’re shipping perishables to friends and family or looking to keep food cold on a camping trip. Dry ice can also do some nifty things in your home. Dry ice can help your plants grow, repel mosquitoes in your back yard, and remove old tile flooring. You can also use dry ice to make bubbly ice cream, carbonated fruit drinks, and homemade root beer.
