    Well it says right on the package not to subject them to freezing temps.

    We tried to be cheap about it & reused them for awhile but with reduced effectiveness. So we went back to single use.

    They need roommates in order to lighten their load. My kid in Chicago only pays $750 & the one in Milwaukee pays $600. If you insist on living alone you're going to pay through the nose.
