What are the safety concerns with dry ice?

Dry ice sublimates into gaseous carbon dioxide (CO2), so be sure to store it in an insulated, but not tightly sealed, container or outdoors. When using dry ice, always do so in a well-ventilated, open space. Also, Penguin Brand Dry Ice encourages you to use gloves, tongs or a towel when handling dry ice, as it can irritate skin if contact is made for more than several seconds.

How long does dry ice last?

Stored in a 25 qt. cooler, dry ice sublimates at a rate of 10 lbs. every 24 hours.

How much dry ice will I need?

For a standard 25 qt. cooler, use 10 – 15 lbs. per day. For fog effects, use 5 – 10 lbs. of dry ice for every four to eight gallons of hot water. For emergency uses such as during a power outage, use 1.5 lbs. of dry ice per cubic foot of freezer space.

Is dry ice toxic?

No, it’s not. Dry ice is the solid state of carbon dioxide.

How do I dispose of any unneeded dry ice?

Place any unused dry ice in an open, well-ventilated area inside a cooler or paper bag or just set it outdoors away from children or pets. It will disappear in a short amount of time.
