Does Your Ice Taste Bad?
August 25th, 2011
|Food can transfer odors and tastes to ice. Even food in the refrigerator compartment can transfer an odor or taste to the freezer causing bad tasting ice.
|There are four (4) conditions that can cause an odor or taste in your ice:
- Open food containers, or spilled foods
- Low ice usage. Old or stale ice will absorb food odors.
- Bad water supply. Sulfur, algae, minerals, salt, etc. in the water supply can cause bad tasting water which results in bad tasting ice.
- Old water filter. If you have a water filtration system, the filter should be replaced every 6 months or as recommended by the manufacturer.
