Now, what to do when a roommate leaves the door to your freezer open over night, then realize what's been done and close the door without telling you.
You'll want to get rid of the ice, won't you? Well, this is how its done. Laidback-style.
Keep in mind, we are dealing with water, water is wet, water is hard (if cold), and water may cause damage to property and so on. Your landlord might be a little grumpy if you spill a lot of water in your flat.
I have been instructed to tell you that:
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! IF YOU MESS THIS UP, IT'S ON YOU.
Now, lets get to "work".
Step 1: What you'll need
Now, the case here is what do you need to de-ice a freezer. Some might use heat, from a reversed vacuumcleaner, or perhaps a hairdryer. However, this requires actually having to stick around, and working to get the ice off.
Here is what I think you'll need:
- The freezer (preferably without food)
- A bucket
- Gaffers tape / duct tape / electricians tape (this actually works best)
- A refuse bag, the big sturdy kind.
- A bottle, empty. 1,5 liters will suffice.
- A can of Coke. Or two....
