Am I the only one who uses frozen peas as ice packs?

They feel so nice and flexible on my head and knee!

  • Nope. They work great! My mom actually found a gel ice pack type thing that's called "Peas" (the brand name)--it consists of pea-sized gel balls in a bag that you stick in the freezer and use for aches and pains. For occasional use, I wouldn't bother; but if you use it all the time (she has arthritis in her back), it sure beats wasting all those peas, lol.

  • I do if I don't have any frozen gel packs. I'll use any bag of frozen veggie/fruit if I have to.

  • No. A couple of weeks ago, I got a terrible sunburn. and in the process of trying to cool my skin down, I think I thawed out at least 2 bags of frozen veggies! I used them to make vegetable soup for dinner the next day! lol
