Make your own reusable ice pack with 2 parts water and 1 part rubbing alcohol in a large freezer bag. The ice pack molds to your body and is much more comfortable than hard blocks of ice. It’s ready to go when you need it and easier than having to make an ice pack after an injury!
I’m thinking that if I double bag these I could use them to pack in our cooler for camping trips. Have you made these reusable ice packs before? Do you have any tips for us on how you use them?
