Homemade Ice Pack

Now I'm sure you guys were picturing something totally awesome and crafty!! Yeah, no. THIS is my homemade ice pack!But this is no ordinary chunk of ice!! It is pliable too... kinda slushy! So here's how you can make your own:

In a QUART size freezer bag mix one cup rubbing alcohol and two cups water. If you need a bigger bag, simply double the liquid to two cups rubbing alcohol and four cups water in a GALLON size bag.

The alcohol doesn't allow the water to freeze all the way. It's awesome!

I have spent A LOT of time with this bad boy lately. My knee has not improved yet; I am hoping it does in the next day or two. I am getting more and more anxious with every day that goes by.

What a GREAT and CHEAP idea! My husband has a bad knee, and for some reason we are ALWAYS losing the expensive ice packs we buy :-) Thanks for the idea!
