    Every now and then life hands you a situation that says “I need an icepack!!”

    Maybe you’ve had an injury or a sprain, perhaps a hurt child needs to soothe a boo boo, someone might be recovering from surgery. . .

    Or . .

    maybe you just need to keep your lunch cold.

    (That’s an important situation too!)

    When you find yourself needing an ice pack, why not Make Your Own? Here are five easy methods using common household items:

    Katee's note: I've been reading this blog for a couple of years. Some of her posts are brilliant. Others, where she is trying to recreate a processed food at home fall into my "not so healthy" category. Of course, i like that she shared my Glycerin Skin Moisturizer, too.

    I thought this post on making your own ice packs was particularly good as we all often need one for bumps and bruises.

    I haven't tried to make my own yet, but our favorite ice pack is a sheet of clay that is encased in a plastic cover. The clay molds to body parts and retains the cold for a good long while. Then it's popped back into the freezer where it lives until needed again. It also will not leak even if the cover developed a hole.

    Another one that would hold cold the longest - freeze a bag of fresh peas

    I've been known to use a bag of peas. But over the years I've had products mailed to me with ice packs in them, so of course they live in my freezer.

    Anyone ever try wetting and freezing a dish towel? As I recall, that works well, Use several, swap them in & out as they thaw.
