How to Quickly Chill a Hotel Drink (Water, Coke or Beer) for FREE!

The small bucket for ice is too small in most cases to do more than one bottle. Here’s how you can be more efficient… Requirements: Plastic bag Step 1 Grab a plastic bag. Make sure it doesn’t have a hole in it! Step 2 Fill the bag (about 2/3) with ice from the hotel’s ice machine. Step 3 Add as many drinks as the bag will hold. Add a bit of water to speed up the cooling process. That’s it! Now you’re able to move the bag and drinks out of the way if you need to use the sink. Just be sure to put the bag back just in case it starts to leak…. Learn something new every day! How do YOU do it? We want to hear from you!

You can easily cool a can of pop or beer in under 5 minutes to the mid 30′s (refrigerator temps). PRO TIP: If you have some standard table salt, throw that in there as well and achieve your results in 2/3 the time. Erik Scott Ellis April 3, 2012 Eric.. good one. Salt is a future tip! Charles April 3, 2012 Great tip! If add some salt to the mix it will cool your drink even faster. Love this tip. Cali Lewis April 3, 2012 Thanks guys! Great additions! mike April 3, 2012 Really??? Michael (@d10k6) April 3, 2012 We always use the garbage can (most rooms have 2) instead of the sink as most bathrooms sinks are quite shallow. Steve April 3, 2012 Isn’t this how ice-cream making machines work? Jake April 3, 2012 If you put about a half cup of salt in there, it will make it cold even faster Ace April 5, 2012 Are you kidding me with this? If you couldn’t figure this out your not a geek but, a very slow learner. David April 5, 2012 Ice makes things cold?! Gil April 6, 2012 How can I get the ice? Should we steal it? hehe..
