Freeze Your Water Bottle


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Here in Las Vegas, temps max out at around 115 in the summer, but stay above 100 for most of June-September. To keep cool and hydrated during my summertime walks, I take a completely frozen bottle of water with me. It starts melting within about 5 minutes, so I have water available to drink when I need it. It continues to melt throughout my hour-long walk, giving me water continuously. And bonus, it cools down my hands and keeps the heat-induced swelling to a minimum!

    Great idea but you may want to transfer water to a non-plastic container before freezing. Exposing plastics to extreme cold or heat may release harmful chemicals in the plastic... Keep up the good work!
