God Bless the guy who came up with the idea of Ice Cube Trays!
Yes, these babies give us the ultra-chilled cocktails in scorching summers; but did you know you could use the same ice cube trays for a hoard of other things around your place?!
But here’s some inspiration for all of us! Ice cube trays can make our lives SO much easier in these 10 ways. And they look pretty too!
10. Preserve Herbs in Olive Oil
