Uses For Those Plastic Ice Cube Trays!

Post by lsmile4freebies on Sat Jul 11, 2009 10:32 pm

:D Well, if you got the kind of refrigerator that makes ice and dispenses ice and you don't know what to do with those plastic ice cube trays or you have some extra ones....here are some good ideas to put them to good use.

1. You can use them to put paint in for the kids to use for finger painting or painting with brushes. Use a different color for each cube hole.

2. Have a beading project and need to sort those beads out so you can see them better?? Well, you can use them to put your beads in.

3. You can use the ice cube tray in an office desk to organize paper clips , stamps, rubber bands, or push tacks etc.

4. You can use one or two of these ice cube trays to put rings or jewerly in an drawer that needs to be organized with all your jewerly.

5. The bathroom drawer, to put bobby pins, hair ties, little items..etc. use your imagination.

6. Or your junk mail drawer, to put all kinds of odds and ends.

7. And of course in the tool shed for your man to put and organize his nails, each cube hole according to what type of nails , screws, nuts and bolts.

8. Or make good ol' popsicles out of the juices you have at home...like apple juice, orange juice, cranberry juice, fill each tray with juice and cover with a plastic wrap and then stick a toothpick in each and put in the freezer. The kids will now have something cool and refreshing to eat this summer.
:D Some people don't want for there limes or lemons to go to waste by not using them in time so they squeeze the juice out and pour in the ice cube trays and when they need some lime or lemon juice ....wala....you can drop them in soup, or make lemonade just like that.
Some people store bits of basil, peppermint leaves and fill the tray with water and those herbs won't go bad and will be frozen until you need them to cook.
Hope these tips, helped you out. And if you don't have any ice cube trays they are always easy to get at The Dollar Tree or Dollar stores. Or at thrift shops and yard sales. 👽

Hey, these are some excellent ideas. I make jewelry with beads and the bead idea is great because they also stack on top of each other fairly easily without fear of spilling.

Tomato paste. You know how annoying it is, it comes in a whole can and most recipes only all for a tablespoon or two. So, freeze a tablespoon worth in each little ice cube slot, and wrap in plastic wrap to keep out freezer burn. Then, you can just pop em out when you need em. Smile

You can also may a lime juice or lemon juice and water mixture and freeze them, then put into your glass of water to have lemon or lime ice water. Yum!
