Hurt yourself? Need to cool down your lunch? Either way, if you don’t need a fancy ice pack on hand, a bag of dish soap works just fine.
Dish soap doesn’t freeze solid like ice, so you get a nice cold gel when you stick it in the freezer. All you have to do is fill up a sealable plastic bag with the stuff and wait a couple of hours while it chills. In the end, you have a cold gel pack you can use to heal your injuries or keep your food cool.
