DIY Gel Pack
Did you sprain your ankle or bruise your thigh and need a gel pack? There is no need to run to the store and buy one.
Here is a recipe to make your own!
What you need:
¾ cup water
¼ isopropyl alcohol
2 sealing sandwich bags
Food coloring (optional)
How to make your gel pack:
Add water, isopropyl and a few drops of food coloring, into your sandwich bag.
Press out as much air out of the bag as you can and then seal the bag.
Place your bag into a second bag.
Press out as much air as you can out of the second bag, and seal it shut.
Place the bag in your freezer for 2-3 hours before use.
*Mixture may be slushy, but will not completely freeze
