Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide (CO2). It's called "dry ice" because it does not melt like wet ice. Instead, dry ice converts into carbon dioxide gas, which creates the “fog” effect ideal for Halloween. Dry ice is extremely cold (-109°F/-78.5°C). Simple safety precautions need to be taken when handling dry ice, including:

  • Always use gloves or a towel when touching dry ice. Dry ice can freeze skin cells and cause a burn-like injury.
  • Since dry ice displaces oxygen as it converts to a gas, open car and room windows to ensure proper ventilation. Leave the area if you experience difficulty breathing.
  • The CO2 gas produced by dry ice can cause an explosion if left in an airtight container. We sell foam coolers which ensure the dry ice will ventilate properly while preserving the life of the dry ice.
  • Always supervise children when using dry ice.
