Strawberry Ice Water Hack

Instead of just wasting money and tossing those strawberries in the trash, why not try to give them new life instead? All you need is some ice, water, and a little bit of patience and you’ll be chowing down delicious, non-mushy strawberries in no time at all.

Even though I appreciate following recipes and directions, I’m always down to try a new viral hack. What I love about this hack is that it’s so simple and easy to do.

You literally just need water, ice, and a large bowl and mushy strawberries to put into the freezing cold water. Let the strawberries soak in the cold water for about 20 minutes and watch the magic happen right before your eyes.


As you can see from Facebook user Brittany King, she shows her before and after photos of her strawberries that took a nice, cold bath. With over 32K likes and over 200K shares, you can be certain that this strawberry hack is taking the world by storm.

Strawberry Ice Water Hack Tips

  • While this hack is pretty cool, it’s not a miracle worker. It won’t save any strawberries that are legitimately too far “gone” with mold or something like that.
  • Make certain that you leave the strawberries in the water for the full time to bring back their bright red color.
  • The fresher the strawberries, the more red color that is going to pop from putting them in the ice-cold bath!

When it comes to saving as many strawberries as possible, this simple Strawberry Ice Water Hack just might be the way to make it happen.
