Dry ice machines are now available in Sydney for different functions and occasions.
Many party hosts look for event hire in Sydney for a hassle-free celebration.

Dry Ice vs Smoke Machine
Before, smoke machines were used for parties, but it has been discovered that they generate substances that can harm humans when inhaled or even set off the fire alarms in the venue. Both are real concerns for many organizers, and so, dry ice has been seen as a better alternative. Dry ice lasts longer on the dance floor, with better covering compared to smoke. Customers can now ask and look for event hire in Sydney offering this service if they want it included in their event.
If planning for a winter-wonderland themed event, dry ice would be a great choice. The dry ice would create a misty effect on the floor and make the venue look magical. Some choose to do it themselves by putting chunks of dry ice in buckets, but this should be done with great care, especially in handling dry ice. On the other hand, there are services offering this option to make an event easy and hassle-free for customers.
Another idea that could be great especially for Halloween is using dry ice to create smoke effects in cauldrons. By adding the dry ice into a container filled with water, it would immediately start smoking. Add drops of food colouring for different colours to match the motif.
While dry ice needs careful handling, its chemical composition is rather safe. Dry ice is essentially frozen carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon dioxide is the same gas humans and animals exhale. However, the reason why it needs careful handling is that it is really cold. Make sure that there is no direct skin contact to ensure safety. Another concern is ventilation. When kept in a closed container, the carbon dioxide would have nowhere to go, which could create immense pressure inside the container. The venue should also have proper ventilation so that guests do not run out of oxygen,
