People are only just realising the ‘correct’ way to use ice bags

July 17, 2022

A woman has blown people's minds after sharing the 'correct' way to open ice cube bags – which has come in very handy during then extreme heatwave.

According to the video hack, which was first demonstrated in 2019, we all may have been doing it wrong for years.

The original clip was uploaded to the Facebook page NETfixe but has since gone viral again after being re-shared to TikTok.

It shows the woman taking all of the ice cubes out at once instead of prising them out individually.

To remove the ice, the woman simply stretches the bag horizontally and vertically, which causes the segments in the bag to transform into a sack.

All the ice cubes fall into the bottom at once, Mirror reports.

The woman is then able to pour the ice out – or easily grab however many cubes she requires.

Many people were stunned to discover this quick and easy technique for removing ice and praised the Facebook page for sharing the video.

However, some pointed out that this isn't really new information as "it tells you on the box" to do it this way, but it seems many people still didn't know about it.

One person said: "OMG this must be the best Christmas gift this year. I've been freezing my fingers off for years!"

"Brilliant, I wish I had known that before," replied someone else.

A third wrote: "I've been doing that wrong for years… need to buy some more ice cube bags!"

"Aww FFS, I tear these out one by one and almost half ends up on the floor. My day is made," added a fourth.

Others were eager to point out that this method is only useful if you intended to use all of the ice in one go.

They explained: "We have not been doing it wrong, putting them all together is wrong unless you plan to use them all straight away.

"If you put them back in the freezer like that they will freeze together and also gather frost, the bag keeps them separate for that reason."

Regardless of this, it's certainly something to store away for future reference and Brits will be finding it handy while they are desperate to cool off during the red alert weather.

The Met Office has, for the first time in its 168-year history, issued a red alert warning for extreme heat as coming few days are expected to bring soaring temperatures that present a risk to even healthy people, and the record-breaking heatwave is “a national emergency”.

With temperatures reaching a record 40ºC in some areas of the UK on Monday, there could be a risk of “serious illness or danger to life” and there will be “widespread impacts on people and infrastructure”.
