No matter how much it makes sense in our head, scratching an itch from a mosquito bite is never the right thing to do. What you can do instead is to ice it up to soothe the itchiness. It’s hard to handle individual ice cubes though, so you can do this instead:


  • Film canister
  • Water
  • Freezer


  1. Fill the canister 3/4. This is to give space for its expansion
  2. Freeze it
  3. When you nee to use it, run a bit of water on it and just pop it out with your fingers!
