Freeze Water Bottles

Cold water bottles are utterly important to survive through the hot summer days by keeping ones self hydrated. Usually when you fill the bottles to the top and freeze them, they turn into hard ice. The best way is to fill half the bottle and then deposit it in the freezer and whenever you want to drink water just fill it in the bottle. This will keep the water colder for longer!
