My wife pulled her sciatic nerve last week. An ice pack was recommended but one of our friends gave us a great tip.


Instead of an ice pack, partially fill a strong zip lock bag with Dawn dishwashing detergent and freeze it. (I don't know if other brands would work just as well.)


Just to be safe, we double-bagged it!


The detergent stays cold much longer and it can be re-frozen over and over. It also molds to your back better than ice.

When anyone in our household needs an ice pack, my wife pulls out a bag of frozen peas.

Once, in a fit of despair and desperation, I asked my wife to stare at my beer. It didn't work, but I bet it would of chilled if I could of taped it to her shoulder for the next couple days.
