Dry Ice Safety
Never place dry ice in the mouth or ingest it.
Never let dry ice touch your skin as it can cause severe burns.
Never handle or store dry ice in enclosed areas.
Never serve a drink that contains dry ice without warning your customer.
HOW TO HANDLE
Surface temperature of dry ice is extremely cold (-78 C).
Always handle Dry Ice with care and wear protective cloth and thermal gloves whenever touching it. If touched briefly it is harmless, but prolonged contact with the skin will freeze body cells and cause injury similar to a burn (frost bite).
HOW TO STORE
Store Dry Ice in an insulated container. The thicker the insulation, the slower it will sublimate. Dry Ice should not be stored in an airtight containers. Sublimation of Dry Ice to Carbon Dioxide gas will cause any airtight container to expand or possibly explode. Keep proper air ventilation wherever Dry Ice is stored. Do not store Dry Ice in unventilated rooms, cellars, autos or boat holds. The sublimated Carbon Dioxide gas will sink to low areas and replace oxygenated air. This could cause suffocation if breathed in exclusively. Do not store Dry Ice in a freezer of refrigerator as the extremely cold temperature will cause the thermostat to turn off the freezer. It will keep everything frozen in the freezer but it will be used up at a faster rate. It is the perfect thing to use if your refrigerator breaks down in an emergency. There are Commercial Storage Containers available to store Dry Ice.
HOW TO DISPOSE
Unwrap and leave Dry Ice at room temperature in a well-ventilated area,It will sublimate from a solid to a gas with no residue left. This way Dry Ice is very eco friendly.
