    Homemade Icepacks. This is so cool - you use plain Dawn....it doesn't freeze totally solid but like those gel packs you can buy where you contour them to your body. So neat! Add a bit of rubbing alcohol and double bag as needed. Great baby shower gift idea or give to someone right after surgery.
