Helpful Tips

  • If you place the ice packs in your freezer with the plastic side facing each other, they will not freeze together.
  • These ice packs can be microwaved to create a wonderful hot pad. Ice packs need to be thawed and microwaved for only a few seconds.
  • Shipping perishables - if you seal a cooler or Styrofoam container with duct tape, with ice packs and perishables inside, you will get an extended freeze time with the packs.
