These ties keep you cool for fun in the sun. They're 42" - 44" long, with a 2" x 18" section filled with nontoxic water-absorbing crystals. Soak a tie in cold water 30 minutes or until the crystals turn to gel. Tie it round your neck or head to stay cool while exercising, gardening, or traveling. You can also use one as a cool compress for sprains, since it can be tied in place. When it starts to lose its cool, refresh in water for a few minutes. Hang to dry (takes several days indoor). Hand washable with a mild soap. 100% cotton with polymer crystals. Made in a smoke-free home.
In the summer I keep one in the fridge and wear it at work because the AC can’t keep up with the Texas heat. The wet tie can be put in the freezer for 10 minutes or so, but don’t leave it—the crystals may burst. You can speed up the drying process with a short period in the dryer if you have a rack.
I use Watersorb® crystals, which absorb more water than those found in garden stores. Once soaked, a tie with Watersorb® crystals can be heated briefly in the microwave to use as a heat pack. They retain heat about 3x longer than cold!
These make great gifts for family, friends, teachers, co-workers, hair stylists, and servicemen and women. The brown is best to send to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
