DIY Homemade Icepack

Homemade Ice Pack

2- cups of water
1/3- cup (80%) alcohol- rubbing alcohol or vodka, etc.
Zipper- top plastic bag

Combine water and alcohol in a zipper-top bag. Seal top and freeze. The alcohol keeps it from freezing solid and creates a gel-like ice pack. You can add food colouring to the water to your liking for something different. Be sure to label your bag so  you know what it is. Contents are not to be swallowed.

    Dish detergent makes a great gel ice pack as well.. stays cold much longer than regular ice.. but always be sure to double bag it because it is soap and you wouldn’t want that leaking into your food lol
