But what happens if you should unexpectedly lose power in your house? Well, that's where the quarter hack comes in so handy.
A Cup, A Quarter And Some Water Is All You Need
According to the Family Handy Man website, here's how to keep your family safe if your freezer should lose power,
Whether you’ve got a freezer attached to your fridge or a chest freezer out in your garage, this trick will work. First, grab a freezer-safe cup and fill it with water. Place that cup in the freezer and wait until it’s fully frozen. Then, place a quarter on top of the ice. That’s it!
The idea is that if your freezer loses power, the quarter should still be on top of the ice.
If your freezer lost power, the quarter will be in the middle, or even the bottom of the cup.
This can be a quick eye test for if your food has potentially thawed and is no longer safe to eat.
