5 Unconventional Uses for a Dry Ice at Home

Dry ice is no longer just the go-to for keeping your ice cream frozen during shipping or preserving your summer berries. Believe it or not, this frozen wonder has some incredible uses right at home! Buckle up for a journey into the unexpected and discover five fun and quirky ways to make the most out of your next Dry Ice Delivery from Baker's Gas and Welding.

Mosquito-Free Outdoor Oasis

Tired of those pesky mosquitoes crashing your outdoor party? Enter dry ice, the ultimate mosquito decoy! These bloodsuckers are attracted to the smell of carbon dioxide, and dry ice happens to be frozen carbon dioxide gas (CO2). Create a little dry ice haven away from your gathering, and watch as mosquitoes flock to it, leaving you to enjoy your night bite-free. A 10-pound slab of dry ice is all you need for a peaceful night with friends and family outdoors!

Just remember to keep the space well-ventilated to keep both your plants and you happy.
