10 Surprising Things You Can Do With Sponges


DIY Ice Pack

Here’s a tip that comes just in time for a heatwave: You can use sponges as non-drip ice packs. All you have to do is soak a sponge and put it in a resealable zip bag. Don’t over-saturate the sponge. Seal the bag and place it in the freezer for about 8-10 hours (or overnight). In the morning, you will have a reusable ice pack that also doesn’t drip. As the water starts melting, the sponge will soak it right back up! Cool, right?

Ice packs are great for a number of things, such as keeping a brown bag lunch fresher or helping with inflammation. You can also use your reusable sponge ice pack to keep you cooler while doing yard work or gardening.
