To make your own shapeable ice pack: Mix 1 part rubbing alcohol with 3 parts water in a ziploc bag and put in the freezer. (The alcohol will prevent the water from freezing completely.) When it’s frozen, wrap with a towel or cloth of some sort and apply. Tip: If the mixture freezes too hard, just add a little more alcohol. If it’s too slushy, add a little more water.
