How to Make a Gel Ice Pack
Rubbing alcohol keeps pack from freezing solid. Sometimes for my cooler I do this process with water alone, but if you want an ice pack that is flexible, add the rubbing alcohol.
Yes, put the small filled bag into a larger sized bag.
Why you need to put the alcohol? when you put the alcohol with it takes longer to thaw ?
I made mine in a quart sized bag, cut an old towel to fit so it would completely wrap, then put the whole thing in a gallon bag. I have a Seal a Meal type thing, so I was able to cut/seal the outer bag pretty snugly, so the towel won't come unwrapped
the dawn is just a subittude if you couldn't get your hands on any rubbing alcohol
I have several sizes made. They are great. They are so pliable so easy to get them in the position you need them in. Like curved, etc. I will never buy one.
