How Long Does It Last?

Dry ice has a short shelf life. The more ice you order the longer it lasts. Typically it can lose around 2kg per day. The 2.5kg will usually last for 24hrs if unused and left un-opened.

It depends! 10kg can be consumed within minutes if added to sufficient hot water to create large scale effects. However, for smaller more subtle effects the dry ice can last for hours. We ship dry ice in thick polystyrene boxes and the ice will last for 3-4 days depending on how you store the ice. We recommend keeping the ice unopened in the packaging until it is required and to store the box in a safe cold place. Once ice has been used put the lid on the remaining product and place in a cold location.

Dry Ice Deliveries - Everything You Need To Know

Dry ice is a perishable product - it starts to evaporate from the moment we pack it into one of our transport boxes, so you need it delivering as close to the time you need it as possible. This is a great challenge for us to ensure we give you what you want when you want it. This is how we solve this problem:

1. Our website allows you to specify weeks in advance the day you want the product delivered on. This means you can place your order well in advance, we will not pack the ice until the last moment and will put extra ice in to help with the delivery time to you.
 
2. We use the best thick-walled shipping boxes in the industry and this allows us to minimise the loss of dry ice both in transit and when it is with you. 
 
3. Sometimes our customers need timed morning or weekend deliveries which attract a hefty courier premium; even using the best couriers we have found that these services are less reliable. We now offer a new delivery method called ‘Enhanced Delivery’ whereby we will deliver the ice a day earlier than you require using the reliable next day standard delivery. We will overfill the box to more than compensate for the extra day, the result is more ice on the day you need it and a more reliable delivery method. The cost of this service is £6 and so it is also less expensive than most timed options! We can only offer Enhanced Delivery if we know of your order several days in advance, we can offer this service Monday through Friday with the intention that it is used the following day at your convenience. 
 
4. If you need a timed or weekend delivery at the last moment don’t panic! We use the best overnight couriers for the majority of our deliveries, they offer increasingly reliable services with tracking information to follow your delivery. And our packaging is designed to work with their handling systems to arrive in optimum condition with you.

Next Day Standard Free Delivery

Weekday orders are dispatched FREE within 24hrs and are sent via courier on a next day service. (Tuesday to Friday). All orders for next day delivery (Tuesday to Friday) need to be made by 3.00 pm the previous day. Please note that goods must be signed for unless you specify alternative delivery instructions in the comments box at the time of placing your order.

The courier operates 9.00 am to 4.00 pm.  If you would like your order for a designated time or a Saturday delivery, these are offered with a nominal charge at the checkout. 

Enhanced Delivery

We deliver the ice a day earlier than you require using the reliable next day standard delivery. We will overfill the box to more than compensate for the extra day, the result is more ice on the day you need it and a more reliable delivery method. The cost of this service is £6 and so it is also less expensive than most timed options! We can only offer Enhanced Delivery if we know of your order several days in advance, we can offer this service Monday through Friday with the intention that it is used the following day at your convenience.

  • Dry ice is extremely cold (-80 degrees) and should be handled with care, use the gloves provided as necessary to help prevent frostbite burns. 
  • Never use industrial dry ice in drinks it may contain chemical, oils or other contaminants, even dry ice made from food grade CO2 may contain oils and contaminants as it is converted into dry ice. Use CS9.5 grade to be safe. 
  • Never put dry ice directly into drinks always use a safety containment device such as the Chillistick.
  • Only allow responsible sober adults to handle dry ice who have read the safety guidelines.
  • Storing and Using Dry Ice Always keep dry ice in the polystyrene box supplied.
  • Always replace the lid after use.
  • Always store the dry ice box in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
  • You can store the dry ice box in a domestic fridge or freezer.
  • Do NOT store in a walk in refrigerator or freezer.
  • Never transport in a vehicle without having a continuous supply of fresh air.
  • Do not open until you are ready to use the dry ice – this will reduce its life span.
  • When handling the dry ice, put two of the supplied gloves on one hand; use this hand to touch the dry ice. Use a cup, or scoop to move the dry ice.
