This creates tension which is released as a crackling sound. The ice melt (calcium chloride) might exaggerate the effect because it is faster than natural melting or it happens more unevenly, creating more tension.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
