Recipe by Jb Tyler, TX
These are ice pack "recipes" - I was told how to make these for my husband after surgery. I double bag these and use gallon size bags. External Use Only - goes without saying! Note: Never apply an ice pack directly to the skin as it can cause frostbite. Always(!!!) wrap ice packs in a towel or cloth before applying to skin!
Directions See How It's Made
- Palmolive Bag.
- Use the green liquid dish soap - Palmolive.
- Don't dilute, just put into your zip lock bag, double bag and freeze, maybe reused several times. Makes a nice bag that molds to the affected area.
- Alcohol Bag.
- Use rubbing alcohol.
- 1 part alcohol and 2 parts water. Freeze and use. (this is my favorite).
- If it's too stiff, add more alcohol, too mushy - add more water.
