Subject: Re: keep cool Bandanas with Soil Moist?

Use Linda S's directions above, but only put 2 Tbs of the crystals in each pocket so it dosen't pop the seams when they swell from hydration.
Soil moist is sold at nursery's. If desperate, open "un-used" diapers and use those crystals.
[Wait until G sees this, or Lynette!] They are the same thing.
