And now….the end is near…and so we face…the final curtain…
Pardon our crooning. We’re a little bit emotional that this is our last post in our blog series, “Unusual Dry Ice Uses.” We’ve been through a lot during this series. The highs of homemade root beer, the lows of fixing dents and hail damage…well, we’ve grown attached to it. But alas, all good things must come to an end. As such, prepare the tissues, because here comes the end.
This one sounds cool, so it’s batting leadoff. As dry ice sublimates, it gives of carbon dioxide, which can replace oxygen, thereby putting out or preventing fires in situations where spontaneous combustion may occur. It can also be used to safely remove underground gas storage tanks.
Temperatures as low as dry ice are able to slow or even stop some chemical reactions from taking place. It can be used to ship particular adhesives, and will neutralize alkali materials.
This is a good one — get ready. We might not have saved the best for last, but it’s pretty decent. Carbon dioxide will attract mosquitos away from people and animals. So if you put a hunk of dry ice somewhere away from where you’re sitting outside, allegedly the mosquitos will flock to it and leave you alone. The idea is that mosquitos find people by detecting the carbon dioxide when we exhale, so you can fool them with concentrated carbon dioxide coming off of dry ice! Or, y’know, buy a Citronella candle. But our way is cooler!
Alright! Show’s over folks! Collect your hats at the door! But before you go, as always, remember your safety practices! We’ll be back next week with…well…something. Stay tuned!
