Water-wise tip: Chill your drink with reusable ice cubes

These convenient little cubes (of stars or other fun shapes) chill drink after drink with the same distilled water trapped inside colorful plastic or metal. Freeze the cubes, then use in your favorite beverages. Besides chilling your drink, these cubes won’t dilute your beverage. After use, simply rinse the cubes (if necessary), pat dry and return to the freezer for next time. Reusable ice cubes also may be hand-washed with dish detergent.

Find them at home stores and online. Bed, Bath & Beyond features several versions of reusable ice cubes at reasonable prices, such as a set of 30 for $3.99.
