Dry ice can be made at home, given that you have the necessary equipment such as portable dry ice makers and know how in making and handling dry ice.

A portable dry ice maker allows you to produce dry ice anytime and almost everywhere. Some models of portable dry ice makers can produce 1 lb- blocks of dry ice within a minute.Portable dry ice makers also don't occupy so much space since they are usually attached to CO2 containers and are not huge floor standing equipments. So allocating space for this equipment isn't a problem.

It is advised to be fully informed on the safety precautions in handling dry ice before making your own at home.

You don't. To make ice cream you want to make it with ice cream salt.

Dry ice bubbling up through whatever concoction you made will make it "fizzy", or carbonated.

You put it in your freezer

A fire extinguisher does no make dry ice. Dry Ice is the solid form of the gas Carbon Dioxide. At room temperature is you compress (and cool) CO", it turns into solid CO2 (dry ice) without forming a liquid phase.

Dry ice is Carbon Dioxide, so Carbon and Oxygen.

No, dry ice is simply solid Carbon dioxide while salt is Sodium chloride.

ice is slippery and dry ice is not because ice dosent dry out when the sun hits it and dry ice does!

Dry ice will freeze a drink, but the time it takes to make the bubbles, the juice will be gone, so if you have a lot of dry ice and a giant pitcher of juice, then maybe

In packing dry ice, make sure to use well insulated coolers, preferably those with automatic ventilation. In packing make sure to place the clocks or slabs of dry ice as close to each other as possible to avoid empty space. The empty space can cause the dry ice to sublimate faster. Fill in these spaces with new bubble packs, newspaper or Styrofoam peanuts. Check link below for more information on dry ice and dry ice makers.

Dry Ice is made up of a chemical. When exposed to air it dissipates. The more the air gets to it the faster it disappears. To make you dry ice last longer, just keep your container closed and make sure it is air tight. The Ice Cream Man

Dry ice has a very cold temperature of -109.3°F or -78.5°C. Dry ice is made when carbon dioxide (CO2) gas is compressed in a high-pressure container until it liquefies. Upon the release of pressure, some of the liquid turns into gas that cools some of the liquid into its solid state in the form of dry ice. Check link below for more information on dry ice and dry ice makers.

By quickly decompressing compressed carbon dioxide (CO2), the CO2 freezes itself forming dry ice.

Many people make dry ice of different colors for parties, especially at Halloween. This is simple and can be done by drizzling food coloring over chunks of dry ice. Rubber gloves should be worn and the food coloring shouldn't be added until needed because it will cause the dry ice to evaporate faster.

Yes, it will make water colder.
