Use Dry Ice for Your Next Camping Trip

Camping can be a terrific way to enjoy the great outdoors and unwind. That is until your ice melts and your cooler’s contents spoil. That’s why, dry ice is a great alternative to regular ice when camping. Dry ice is far more effective for long-term food storage than standard “wet” ice since it lasts longer, doesn’t melt, and prevents frozen foods from thawing and deteriorating.

Because dry ice turns into gas as it “melts”, you won’t need to deal with the water accumulating or any leaks as everything thaws. Let’s look at a few dry ice tips to keep in mind as you get ready for your trip. Recall that cold air sinks, so start with the frozen meats and vegetables when adding items to the cooler.

These frozen products are going to take longer thaw due to being colder, so adjust your food and drink item packing accordingly. You may also wish to use bottles of water to fill in gaps between food items to reduce air pockets. Remember when handling dry ice to always do so with the utmost of safety and ensure proper ventilation.
