Why Is My Ice cubes are testing so bad

Is it the freezer?

The smells in your refrigerator and freezer can creep into the foods you store there, and since everything’s so delightfully frozen, it’s dangerously easy to let freezer cleaning fall by the frosty wayside. Don’t neglect your freezer. Treat it with the same attentiveness you (hopefully) show your fridge, lest you welcome guests with tainted cocktails.

Not only will this exercise potentially lead to fresher-tasting ice, but it’s a good habit to get into if you’re serious about keeping your kitchen organized.

Here’s how to handle it:

  1. Turn the freezer off.
  2. Empty the contents and sift through them, disposing of items that are freezer-burned. Place the remaining items in the fridge for the time being.
  3. Scrub down the inside of the freezer with hot water. If you’re feeling adventurous (or if your freezer is in particularly bad shape) add baking soda to the water.
  4. Be sure to pay attention to any shelving, drawers, or compartments inside the freezer.
  5. Replace the contents.
  6. Turn the freezer back on.

Is it the tray?

Ice cube trays come in all kinds of shapes and materials, but whether they’re plastic, silicone, or steel, they’ll all spoil ice if you don’t take care of them.

Empty your trays and clean them thoroughly. If you have a dishwasher and the trays are dishwasher-safe, send them through a cycle.

Make another batch of ice and test them out again. If you’re still getting a soupçon of stinky artificiality, it’s time to move on to the most labor-intensive stage of troubleshooting.

My ice is still gross.
