two weeks ago the DH had surgery on his shoulder
since then we've been really friendly with ice packs
now we have a couple of those blue gel packs, but they don't really stay cold for a 30 minute cooling session, and they're kind of pricey
my daughter shared a recipe with me to do a home made version
I whipped up a couple of these and we've been using them at least 3 times a day ever since -- they're even better than those blue things
it is really simple and really cheap too!
2 - 1 quart zip top plastic bags
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup rubbing alcohol
pour the liquids into one bag, squeeze out the air and zip close, insert into second bag, zip close and freeze
2 - 1 gallon zip top plastic bags
2 1/4 cup water
3/4 cup rubbing alcohol
if you want even smaller ones, use sandwich bags and split the quart measurements!
