As we edge ever closer to the final bank holiday of the year, thoughts will turn of how to spend that precious day off from work and school. A day at the beach, a trip to a theme park or just an afternoon spent in playing in your local park will all be an option, and one way of saving money is by taking a picnic lunch and your own drinks.
But, it has to be said that this is not always the most attractive option, especially if our day out involves a long car journey. Droopy, limp salad, hot sandwiches filled with melted cheese and butter, and warm soft drinks – none of this is very appealing if we are honest. But Thermafreeze may just be the answer to all our packed lunch problems.
Thermafreeze ice packs are a new and efficient alternative to traditional ice products. They can be used as lunchbox icepacks as they are certified as totally food safe by the American FDA. The Thermafreeze ice packs come in sheet form which you can buy in quantities ranging from 5 sheets for household use, to a roll for industrial purposes. You soak the sheet in water, dry, and then place them in your freezer, plastic side facing down. (You can find all the technical details here.) Leave them to freeze overnight and then they are ready to use.
What is great about the Thermafreeze sheets is that they can be cut to any size and shape. This means they can be shaped to fit any size lunchbox or bag, making them a great way to keep desserts and drinks cool during those bank holiday picnics. The sheets are also flexible, so there is no reason why you couldn’t use these in a cooler for your bottle or wine or even a bottle of fizz if you are aiming for a more grown up picnic. Add in the fact that the sheets can be reused, making them eco-friendly, and can also come in a range of cool and trendy prints, and you have a great product that is well worth having in your own.
There is one final use for the Thermafreeze strips that I think is brilliant. If you are using certain sorts of medication that need to be stored in the fridge, traveling can cause all sorts of problems. The thermafreeze can keep medications and creams cool while you travel, and can also be a great cold compress for sprains, migraines or even a heavy head due to a hangover. I would also wrap this around aftersun bottles to make them extra cooling.
