Ice cube trays are inexpensive, and they come in some fun shapes, so you may have a stack of ice cube trays in your freezer. If you’ve noticed that the cubes in the trays shrink or disappear, then you just aren’t using that many ice cubes and could do with fewer trays.
(Science-y note: The ice cubes are going through sublimation – going straight from a solid to a gas. The ice is melting into a gas instead of a liquid. This is perfectly normal.)
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Check your freezer’s contents for food that should be used soon or that has gone bad.
