Does anyone recall why we aren't supposed to refill ice cube trays if we only take out a few cubes? (sorry if this posts twice)
You like running, don't you? If so, where's the problem with that scenario?Man on the site.....
If I removed a few cubes, and refilled with water, and a few minutes later my wife turned the tray over to dump out the some ice, she would have water all over the place, and I would be running for the hills
Among the problems with old ice cubes is that they sublime (switch directly from a solid to a gas) over time and disappear, mentioned up thread.I still have an old metal tray in my freezer, for just in case.
The only reason that I can think of for not adding water, is that it can make the cubes uneven and splinter a bit when the tray is emptied.
I have ended up with water all over the place countless times (2 men in the house. Need I say more!) because of newly filled trays. So, this was my solution (which has been so far very successful):
I have 4 trays, which I rotate. I put the newly filled one all the way to the left on the bottom of the stack. I keep a sealed tupperare container in the freezer which I empty the ice trays into so that the ice does not evaporate and does not absorb odors. This way, there is always ice to be had and no water on the floor. Win, win.
