Walmart sells a wide variety of ice cube trays, which can be found on Walmart.com. The ice cube trays available include regular plastic, silicone and specialty trays.
Different types of plastic trays are used for food service and storage, including those made from melamine, polycarbonate, polypropylene, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene and a co-polymer blend. These trays range in temperature tolerance, stain resistance, durability and usage options.
In general, it takes three to four hours to make ice cubes. Leaving them in the freezer overnight to make sure they are solid all the way through is recommended.
Eating ice cubes is bad for a person's teeth as it can lead to small fractures in tooth enamel, according to WebMD. These small cracks can lead to bigger dental problems down the road as they weaken the tooth structure.

Feeding ice cubes to dogs is fine, as long as there is no chewing or choking hazard involved. The ice cubes can be given as a treat or put in a water bowl. Freezing toys and treats in ice for dogs to chew later is also harmless.
Ice cubes melt as the molecules of air, water or other substances around the ice transfer heat into the molecules of the ice itself. As the temperature increases, the bonds change inside the ice, entering a liquid phase and turning into water, according to About.com.
The fastest way to melt an ice cube is to transfer heat energy to the ice as quickly as possible. Heat sources such as hot water, fire and an oven quickly melt ice, as does setting ice out in the sun.
