Hi Pam, yes it helps keep the frig cleared out, we have the same problem, especially this time of year with all the cold drinks in it.
Something I should add is that I boil my sugar water solution. I don't know if it isn't boiled that if frozen it would separate out. I don't have any problem with mine separating after freezing but it might if not mixed in real hot water.
