  • Always avoid contact with eyes, mouth, skin, and clothing
  • Always keep dry ice out of the reach of children
  • Never seal dry ice in glass or closed containers
  • Use heavy gloves when handling dry ice
  • Dry ice can cause suffocation, severe burns, and injuries
  • Dry ice is harmful if swallowed or eaten. Please seek medical help immediately if consumed

Using Dry Ice in a Fun Way

  • 1 pound of dry ice nuggets will last for 5 to 10 minutes in hot / warm water
  • The warmer the water, the greater the effect — the ice will also dissipate faster
  • A 2-pound block will last for over 10 minutes in hot / warm water
  • Use a Crock-Pot to keep the water warm, so that the effect lasts longer
  • Blocks of dry ice last longer than dry ice nuggets, but nuggets have a better effect
  • Monitor the effects while having a party. You may need to add more warm water or dry ice to keep the desired effects going
  • Use dry ice to make cool centerpieces for a food table

Create Fabulous Halloween Effects With Dry Ice

The Fog Effect
Fill half of a metal or plastic container with hot water. Then add a few pieces of dry ice to the hot water. Do so every 10 to 15 minutes. It may be necessary to start with a new pot of water once the water cools down. For best results, use an electric crock pot or roaster to keep the water hot for a longer duration.

The Witches Brew
Place a few small pieces (pellets) of dry ice in a sandwich bag or any other sealed bag. Punch a few holes in the bag. You can also use cheese cloth. Add a punch bowl or crock pot to warm cider, making sure that the dry ice is not mistaken for an ordinary ice cube. Once the punch cools, you may need to start over, to maintain the effect.
