How to Find Uses for Unwanted Ice Cube Trays
Old ice trays that get too dinged up to use in the freezer are still useful for numerous things. There are several money-saving, time-preserving uses for those old ice trays: The little stackable compartments are great for storing coins, buttons and other trinkets. New trays (super cheap at the dollar store) can also be used for several organizational and culinary purposes.
Use it for stationery.Stash stamps, paperclips and thumbtacks in an ice tray.
Make it into a paint holder.Use the compartments to hold and separate the small portions of paint during a craft or DIY project. (This seems great for painting furniture.)
Use it to hold sewing items.Buttons, sequins, pins, needles, thread etc. can all be arranged neatly in an ice cube container and slipped into the sewing basket.
Make it into a pre-packaged cookie dough holder.Mix up the cookie dough, then freeze and store pre-measured, but unbaked cookie dough in the compartments of the ice tray. Remove the cookie dough cubes for baking as needed.
Keep loose change in it.An ice cube tray represents a low-tech, old-school cash register that is more organized than a jar of change. Great for bazaars!
Plant seedlings in them.Pierce a small hole in the base of each cube mold and presto, you have a seedling tray.
Use them for toys.Have your children create toys from them. Have an adult cut them into various shapes. Kids can then paint them, apply stickers or sequins to them, drawn on them, etc. and turned into a range of interesting pieces.
Use for sampling foods.If you are having a tasting party, these can make great containers for food items being tasted for comparison or quality.
Plant If you have Popsicle Trays, fill them with dirt and plant some small plants in them.Beans are fun to watch and make great science projects, and small herbs like oregano and thyme look beautiful and smell wonderful.
- Make iced coffee using ice cube trays. Take brewed black coffee. You can use the extra coffee in the pot, which is also great, when cooled, for darkening grey hair. Pour the coffee into an ice tray and freeze the tray. As needed, pop out the coffee cubes and toss them into a blender. Add in sugar, cream, milk, cinnamon, vanilla or chocolate. Blend the mixture. Pour the drink into a tall glass. Add whipped cream and a straw.
