We needed a therapeutic hot/cold bag around here…..without forking over any money for one.
(Place in the microwave for a few minutes for some lasting heat. Or place in the freezer for several hours to use a cold compress.)
Here’s how to make your own.
- Fabric rectangle, 25 x 12 inches
- 2 pieces of wide ribbon, 10 inches long each
- Rice…….(I didn’t count but I’m thinking around 8-10 cups)
- Thread, sewing machine, scissors, etc
Then divide your tube into different rice sections. This will keep hot/cold rice in all parts of the bag while around your neck and such………….so the rice doesn’t slip to each end of the bag. I divided my bag into 4 equal parts.
Then sew that section closed and repeat until all of your sections are filled.
Now your ready for some relief.
