Q. What should I do if my cold pack gets punctured or leaks?
A. The cold packs can be punctured by sharp objects, pets, or other disturbances. They can also be damaged if they are dropped onto a hard surface while in their fully frozen state. Eventually it will start to leak. Throw the damaged pack away and order a replacement. It is a good idea to periodically check your cold pack for leakage. Remember that condensation is not the same as leakage.
Q. My cold pack leaked, and I now have a stain on my clothes, carpet, chair or bed sheets. What should I do?
A. Our cold packs are strong and durable, but they can occasionally be punctured or leak. To remove any stain caused by leakage, follow the instructions for cleaning the material in question. The fluid inside the cold packs will typically not cause any staining.
* Note: Before starting any new diet or exercise program, it is advised that you consult your doctor.
