DIY 2 Ingredient Homemade Ice Pack

Whether you are hiiting or lifting, sometimes an injury happens unexpectedly. This is when an ice pack comes in handy; however, most of us do not keep one in our homes because, well, we just do not think about it... until the boo-boo's happen. Icing is great for injuries.
Remember the RICE technique?
  • R – REST 
  • I – ICE
  • C- Compression
  • E- Elevation

Here is how to make your own homemade ice pack without any mess or fuss.

  • 1 large ziplock freezer bag
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup rubbing alcohol
  • food coloring or glitter (optional-just for fun, especially if you have kids)
  1. Fill the large ziplock bag with the water and alcohol.
  2. Freeze overnight or for at least 5 hours. Make sure the bag is laying down when you freeze it!
  3. Use when boo-boo's occur!
