Regardless of whether it is summer or winter, you should always have a hot / cold bag at home to be able to freeze or heat it and thus be able to put it anywhere on our body in case we get hit hard.
However, these packages or “jellies” do not sell them anywhere, because they are a little difficult to find and can become very expensive. So if you are looking for one and don’t know where to buy it, just try making it yourself easily.
Products you can use to make your homemade ice pack.
You will need:
A bag that can be hermetically sealed
Dish washing liquid
1/4 cup of alcohol
Follow these steps to do it
1- Mixing dish-washing liquid with alcohol
Alternatively, you can use liquid detergent or a different mixture by using the same amount of water and alcohol.
2- Put the mixture in a hermetically sealed bag.
Place the mixture in the hermetically sealed bag, and fill it to 3/4 of capacity. Then, once the bag is closed, remove as much air as possible inside the bag to make it close as well as possible.
Make sure the mixture doesn’t get out, place this bag inside another bag and close this second bag hermetically.
3- Place a bag into the freezer
You will not freeze the mixture as a solid block, it will be always malleable in order to adapt to any part of your body. If you wish to stop using it at some point, you can defrost it using the liquid for normal cleaning as you would have always done.
This is not only a simple way to make your own jelly without spending any money, but also a way to make it last longer than any other jelly you can buy off.
However, you should be aware that you shouldn’t stick it directly to your skin as soon after taking it out of the freezer. We recommend that you wrap it in a towel or cloth so that it doesn’t freeze. You can use it as many times as you want and for any part of your body you need.
