@nolrak As a kid in grade we’d walk home from the high school (1.5 miles away) in the winter (snow belt) after swimming class. I had long hair, it froze and I broke off pieces of icicles that had formed around my hair the entire way home. Oops.
The reviews indicate that they can leak after just a few uses and said his cat was licking the stuff off the seam. This person then couldn’t find any information about what was in there and whether or not it was dangerous to humans and pets.
@JT954 according to at least one review, 25-35 minutes for other ice packs. but it likely depends on what they’re in contact with. i have several gel packs that i got for free with grocery deliveries that i use in a cooler bag when i go grocery shopping during warmer weather and can’t go home immediately after. they last hours. but the same ice pack in between my knees while laying on the couch on a hot day won’t last anywhere near that long. and again the same ice pack used on forehead/temples for a migraine in winter lasts somewhere in between.
@mehcuda67 I’d wager (your money) you could: freeze one and then dip half into boiling water. (I would also recommend tongs when doing the dipping, so that your hand doesn’t also freeze and get boiled.)
Alternatively, I suppose you could freeze one (of the three-pack) and heat another and hold them together to duel it out; one side hot, one side cold. But that doesn’t include the thrill of dropping the pack in boiling water and making a mess.
Based off the meh write up: Does anyone suspect that meh purposely posts ridiculous and somewhat negative reviews on Amazon so they get to swoop in and save the day for these companies that are hemorrhaging money on their products that aren’t selling well? Am I acting like a conspiracy theorist or did I just discover the deal-of-the-day site equivalent of Russian collusion?
@nolrak@shiranissosexy Some sort of special prosecutor is in order. We all know there was collusion here. There was interference with those products, and we have many indications Meh colluded with Russians and Ukrainians to bring that about.
My grandmother gave me one of these. It’s not bad. Holds heat for a good while. My biggest issue with it is the beads are a bit too flexible and it didn’t “sit” in the spot I wanted it to on my back easily. Was great on the shoulder though.
I seem to be accident prone. Something tells me I should get these. Especially since they seem to be somewhat flexible where my ice packs that are plasticare clearly not. But, what happens if after I buy these, I never manage to injure myself again?
MEH! I’ll stay with the bag of frozen peas or edamame…use till it gets thin then replace. Bag of edamame lasted 3 months as an ice pack for my knee after arthroscopy. The “steamer” bags hold up better than the other type. As for the heat, I’ve hot a perfectly good heating pad or 2.
