How to Store Dry Ice

Dry ice should be stored in an insulated container such as a Styrofoam box or picnic cooler.  Never
store dry ice in any container that is completely air-tight.  Doing so could cause the container to
explode.  Never store dry ice in a refrigerator or freezer.  Doing so will not make your dry ice last
longer, and because these containers are air-tight, could cause an explosion.

To make your dry ice last as long as possible, protect the ice from the air current by filling the
empty space in your cooler with newspaper and towels.  Keeping the air from touching the dry
ice will slow down the sublimation process.  When stored properly,  dry ice can last a couple of
days.
