If your ice cubes are starting to smell like the Flyers' locker room, don't despair! Before you drop your gloves, try these simple steps to better tasting, clearer ice:
- Use a water filter! Whether it's a pitcher filter, under-sink filter, or refrigerator filter, a fresh filter will reduce taste and odor problems.
- Empty your ice bin! Ice cubes can pick up odors from the inside of the freezer and
refrigerator–especially from open food containers. So dump that funky ice like a puck from the blue line!
- For the clearest cubes, boil your filtered water before freezing it.
- Don't have an ice maker? Try using a stainless steel ice cube tray like this one we found on Amazon.com. Your water will freeze faster and you won't get that weird plastic taste.
So don't be a hoser! Light the lamp with top shelf ice to serve your family and guests.
