PRODUCT QUESTIONS

How can I insure a long life for my gel pack? Proper treatment includes not overheating the pack, storing it in a plastic bag when it is in the freezer, keeping the pack out of direct sunlight, and keeping the hook and loop clean and free of debris. Gently adjusting the hook and loop will keep the strapping and materials looking new.

How do I wash my gel pack? Any outer cover should be washed by hand (recommended) or machine with mild detergent and hung to dry (recommended) or set on tumble dry low in a machine. Avoid bleach, harsh cleansers and fabric softeners. The gel pack inserts can be wiped clean with soap and water or antibacterial disinfectant. 

What happens if my gel pack gets punctured? Although the gel consists of safe non-toxic components, the pack should be discarded. Any spilled gel should be cleaned immediately to prevent falls. If the gel dries and later becomes wet, it will create a very slippery surface. How long can I store my gel pack in the freezer? The freezer is a great place to store the gel pack when it is not in use and it can be stored for several months with no problems. To prevent it from picking up unpleasant odors in the freezer, place it in a plastic bag.
