Would you like to know how to make your own cool gel pack?
You know, the kind you can freeze and toss into an ice chest or wrap in a towel and put on aching muscles?
It is super easy to make your own!
You will need these supplies:
- Ziploc bags
- rubbing alcohol
- blue food coloring
1. Fill a Ziploc bag with 1 part rubbing alcohol, 3 parts water. The alcohol will keep the water from freezing solid, so if you want a firmer gel pack, add less alcohol. If you want it squishier, add more.
2. Add 5 drops of blue food coloring. This is a visual reminder that it is not for consumption. I ended up deciding this bag was too full, so I divided this liquid into 2 bags.
3. To ensure these don't leak, seal them inside another zipper bag.
4. THAT'S IT! Seal well and freeze.
