Making your own cold pack to treat sprains and other acute injuries is simple. Here's how.
1. Add 3 cups water and 1 cup rubbing alcohol to a ziplock freezer storage bag.
2. Add a few drops of blue food coloring, if desired.
3. Double bag to prevent leakage.
4. With a marker, write, "Do not eat" on the bag and place in freezer.
The alcohol will keep the water a soft, cold slush, instead of freezing solid. Perfect for cold therapy.
Note: A bag of frozen peas works well, when you need an ice pack in a hurry and there isn't one on hand.
