Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide at a temperature of minus 109.3 degrees F. This ice form is recommended for keeping items frozen when a freezer is not available. Dry ice is commonly used for shipping foods and is a great way to keep items frozen while camping or traveling. It is colder than regular ice because it is a frozen gas, as it dissolves it goes to a gaseous state and therefore does not leave water behind.
Other uses for dry ice include creating a fog effect, school science projects, or other similar "special effects".
When handling dry ice one must use extreme caution because contact with skin will freeze cells which will cause an injury similar to a burn. Those who handle dry ice should wear cloth or leather work gloves, oven mitts or use a kitchen or bath towel. Please remember always to protect your skin!
