For a recent camping trip I had to get a large cooler at short notice. As large coolers are expensive and I didn't know if I'd ever need it again, I decided to upcycle an old fishmongers box.

To obtain the box I went round my local supermarket fish counters until one kindly gave me a box, in this case from a recent delivery of Salmon.

Step 1: Step 1 - A thorough clean

Once you have your soon-to-be cooler, give it thorough clean to remove most of the fishy smell and any bacteria that may be lurking...
nice repurpose ! Im not sure you needed the extra lining as long as everything was packaged it would have been fine. We have a couple of similar recycled styro boxes we fill with ice and set the bowls of salad and other foods that need to be kept cool during gatherings
This is good. <br> <br>How long will it keep ice for? <br> <br>Say at 20*C <br> <br>In stinking hot Australia, hottest country in the whole world, one can buy ice boxes that still have ice in them after 10 or 14 days? (or nearly 14 days) <br> <br>A step up from the cheap and easy aspect, is to make proper ice boxes that do hold lots of food and a little ice, and can keep the food cold for a LONG time. <br> <br>
