Homemade ice gel pack


Ice gel packs come in handy in case of sore muscles and injuries. Fortunately, you can make one yourself using a Ziploc bag and some rubbing alcohol mixed with water. Having an ice gel pack in the freezer is always a good idea. Using one is as easy as treating a razor burn with after shave cream.

1. Conventional method
Make a 2:1 water to rubbing alcohol solution in a bowl. The alcohol doesn’t let the water freeze completely. Rubbing alcohol is available in any drug store nearby. Don’t make too much of the mixture. Add the solution to a Ziploc bag. You can pick the size of the bag according to your preferences. You can double bag, it won’t affect the effectiveness of the pack. Remove all the excess air before zipping. Use your hands or a vacuum sealer. Put in a refrigerator for 12 hours.

2. When you have no rubbing alcohol
Fill the Ziploc bag with a colorful dish soap (so that you don’t mistake it for edible things), the blue color looks cool. There are no amount restrictions, make it as bulky as you want, yet it will take longer to freeze. Put it in the freezer overnight. It should be semi-frozen when you use it.


3. How to apply an ice gel pack
Wrap the ice pack with a piece of cloth or a towel to prevent ice burns. Apply the wrapped pack onto the sore area for 20 to 30 minutes maximum. Don’t apply more than four times a day.


Numbness or burning when applying the ice gel pack is a sign to see your doctor. Moreover, major strain or soreness should be treated by the physician as well, the ice simply is not enough.
