Just like mom used to make it.

2. If your housemate(s) has/have left a few ice cubes in the tray, remove these by flipping the ice tray over and wiggling it over a clean paper towel.
They don't mention the easiest method.

1. Take remaining ice cubes.
2. Return empty tray to freezer.
3. Leave before roommate comes home.
4. When you get back four hours later, the ice cube tray will be full of ice.

When I was graduating high school, my mother passed a cookbook around to everyone in my family to get recipes. I guess her thought was that I would want to make in college what I had been eating for 18 years.

Anyway, my uncle put in similar recipes for ice cubes and microwaved popcorn. They are probably the only recipes I actually used.

I don't think you can even buy metal ice trays anymore, their all plastic. If anybody don't know how to make ice, they must be pretty dumb. It's just the fact that some people are too lazy, and trifling to refill the empty ice trays with water, after they have used up all the ice.

Except that he is wrong. You are supposed to use hot water to make ice cubes. It freezes faster.

That makes the refrigerator work harder to remove the excess heat energy. Are your electric bills so low that you're looking for a way to increase them?

I read a study that they froze two seconds quicker with hot water. Oh boy.


Plus if you use hot water you're getting more lead content at least from old pipes.

So I guess ideally you should use room temperature water that has been triple-filtered. Then you would not adding lead, or wasting energy heating the water, plus you would still gain about 1 extra second.

Do you unplug a DC transformer during they day when you are not using them? (Cell chargers, etc?) Because the core of the transfomer would still be using power, even though nothing is plugged into them. Are your electric bills so low that you are looking for a way to increase them?
