The Best Homemade Ice Packs


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Make flexible ice packs that will shape around body parts by mixing 2/3 water and 1/3 isopropyl alcohol in heavy duty freezer bags. Place in freezer between uses. The alcohol prevents the water from freezing solid leaving it in a more 'squishy' and flexible state. I always have a few of these in my freezer for injuries or post workout icing.
