DIY Ice Packs

  • Method #1
    Select Ziploc bag size of choice (double or triple bag to protect against leaks).
    Get a big bottle of cheap dish soap.
    Load up the Ziploc about 1/2 – 3/4 full. Close and reopen the bag a couple of times squishing out the air each time.

    Method #2
    2 cups water
    1/3 cup vodka (80 proof)
    Food coloring (any color you like)
    Ziploc Freezer Bag
    Pour liquids into Ziploc freezer bag, add food coloring (you’ll know at a glance that it’s your ice pack and not something to consume) then freeze.

    Method #3
    1 cup rubbing alcohol
    2 cups water
    Ziploc Freezer Bag (1 quart size)
    Pour liquids into freezer bag, remove air and seal bag. Place bag seal side down into another Ziploc freezer bag, remove air and seal that bag. Place in freezer and use (and reuse) as needed (nice and slushy!).
