Whether you are dealing with a headache or a severe fever, ice packs offer the sort of relief that you are not going to find anywhere else. When we were young, ice packs were our go-to. There’s something about seeing your mother coming around the corner with an ice pack that makes you feel like everything is going to be okay. Now that we are adults, we do not get to enjoy the same feelings anymore.

Not to worry, though. You do not need to head to the store to grab expensive new ice packs anymore. We are offering you the tools that you need to make one at home, with no real effort. No, we are not talking about the Ziploc baggie that you fill with ice cubes. Those end up melting anyway.
