Description

The Wheat Bags Bottle Shaped Value Range Heat Pack is a microwave heat pack made in the UK, designed to resemble a traditional hot water bottle in shape but filled with wheat.

  • Wheat bag to replace a traditional hot water bottle.
  • Body warmer made with a robust value fabric.
  • Heat pack warms your body during cold weather.
  • British Safety Standards compliant (BS8433).
  • Trusted WheatyBags® brand.
  • Made in the UK.

The Value Fabric Hot Wheat Bottle Body Warmer from WheatyBags® is a safer, more effective replacement for your ailing hot water bottle. Filled with cleaned, CE-approved, locally sourced wheat - there is no emptying or refilling involved with this wheat bag. This lovely body warmer is the perfect companion during cold weather and is ideal for those looking to save water. As we manufacture this microwave heat pack in the UK, you can rest assured that what you receive is of impeccable quality.

The fabric we use in the manufacture of this wheat bag is highly robust and has been specially formulated to withstand consistent, repeated use over a period of time. As with all of the heat packs in the WheatyBags range, this bag offers outstanding heat retention, which makes it a convenient tool for targeting strains, aches and pains. If you find the smell of lavender therapeutic, we offer a beautifully fragranced Provence lavender option, where we mix dried flower buds in with the wheat.

Customer safety is paramount to us here at WheatyBags®. The Value Cotton Hot Wheat Bottle Body Warmer is fully compliant with British Safety Standards (BS8433). This means that our microwave heat packs have undergone thorough testing to ensure their safety. Full heating instructions are provided with this body warmer, so please read carefully before use.

NB Fabric and Colour will vary depending on stock availability at the time. Our Value Range heat packs from WheatyBags® are made to order from fabric and colours available at the time. We cannot guarantee the colour nor fabric as we use up the end of line fabric rolls to make these heat packs. If you would like a specific fabric and colour, please order from our standard ranges where you have a full choice available.

For my mum - My mother has recently had a stroke and is now in a care home she loves a hot water bottle but was not allowed one so I ordered the wheaty one it is fantastic and safe it arrived quickly and it was a good price (Jackie Bauer)
Better than a hot water bottle - The product heats up really well in the microwave and retains the heat over a reasonable period of time. Much safer than filling a hot water bottle. (anonymous)
Fab Winter Warmer - A real comfort; warm and cosy and easy to mould to wear you need the warmth. (anonymous)
Love this - 7 months pregnant and suffering from sciatica, this is a god send (anonymous)
A quick and easy comfort!th - This is so easy to pop in the microwave now the weather is getting chillier. A good robust cover too- my last one, bought elsewhere was so thin it started leaking wheat very soon. Good service too. (Green Granny)
My aching back loves this Wheaty Hot water bottle - It only takes two minutes to heat up so it is quick and convenient to put on a bad back. Even better with a Wheaty bag to put it in. It stays warm for ages (Mrs. Eunice Barth)
Wheat filled bottle - I bought this for a friend who has had a stroke and is unable to screw up the top on the usual type of bottle. I am hoping it will be a good substitute. (Jan)
Water bottle warmer - Very easy to use. It beats waiting for water to boil,in just 1 and 1/2 minutes the hot wheat bag warmer bottle is ready (Ann Neff)
Couldn't live without them - I have used WheatyBags for many, many years, the wheat bags are always good value, generously filled, last a long time, and are a godsend. I really couldn't manage without them, unlike hot water bottles they never really get cold. I always put a small container of water in the microwave with the bags which helps the wheat from drying out too much. Thank you WheatyBags. (Retired Annie)
Wheat bag - Very pleased with wheat bag thank you. Speedy efficient response. (Lorna Barbour)
Jackie - Very good value. Did what I need it for which is my lower back the heat reliefs the pain. Would buy others. (anonymous)
"Does what it says on the tin" - A great buy. No cover (hence the cheaper price). Good quality, great price. Arrived quickly. I recommend. (Trish T)
Customer Service Review of Value Range Hot Wheat Bottle Body Warmer - If you're a user of hot water bottles, but don't like the emptying or refilling - consider this product. The Value Range Hot Wheat Bottle Body Warmer can be conveniently used in the microwave and there is no potential scalding hazard, which remains an issue with traditional hot water bottles. This body warmer is also superb for those who need targeted heat for pain relief, as this wheat bag is large enough to provide exceptional coverage across a myriad of key body areas. This bag is very much recommended to those who are looking to replace their ailing hot water bottle, with a much more safe and effective option. (Lance Plachciak)

FAQs

How do the Value Range heat packs differ to the main WheatyBags®?
Our Value Range heat packs are made very simply from fabrics we have available and made in bulk ready to sell at the lowest possible cost to you. The value fabric tends to be slightly thinner than the premium outer (normal) fabric we use though remains strong, natural and suitable for purpose and keeps costs as low as possible for you. The fabrics we use tend to be left-over fabrics from larger trade jobs so the fabric usually will be either cotton or polycotton or polyester, and the colours vary from our core and non core fabrics so there is no guidance we can give you on which fabric and colour you will get for your order. All we can say is they will be great value and a great product as you will trust from the WheatyBags® brand.

Are the Value Range heat packs safe to use?
Yes. All have been tested in the same way as our premium range and you can rest assured of the same safety standards used on all the products in the core WheatyBags® brand range.

Do these products come with heating instructions?
Yes. All instructions are on a sewn-on label and a card reminder label attached to the product in accordance with the safety standard guidance we follow.

Can the Value Range be personalised?
No.

Are there other options I can choose from in the Value Range products?
All options you have are shown within the product. No other options are available other than those shown online when ordering to keep matters as simple and low cost as possible.

Is the Lavender Organic?
Yes. We purchase Organic Lavender from our Grain & Seed Merchant in the UK and they have sourced genuine lavender buds for our heat packs.  This is not a scent, we add the flower buds from Organic Lavender for the most exquisite fragrance.

How long should the heat pack be put into the microwave or chill in the freezer?

Please read the “Instructions” shown on our web site in each Product as the heating and cooling instructions vary by product. All our heat packs have been safety tested and come with instructions labels sewn into the product itself and on a card attachment to be retained for safe reference.

Is it normal that my heat pack feels damp when microwaving?

Yes. When you first microwave the heat pack the contents inside will feel damp. This will subside after a few heating cycles and is quite normal especially if you have selected the (polyester) fleece fabric covers. Cotton is much more absorbant and breathable and will lessen theinitial damp effect. Do not overheat the wheat bag to attempt to dry it out.

What happens if I microwave the heat pack for too long or it burns?

Please be very careful not to overheat the heat pack. If overheated they can catch fire which is very dangerous. Overheating can be caused by food or contamination from your microwave so it is important that the microwave is clean before you heat the product.

If overheating occurs, remove from the microwave and put in a safe place while it cools (perhaps outside). Do not use again until the product has returned to room temperature. If it is giving off a 'burnt' smell or has small burn marks on the fabric, you have overheated the product and it must be disposed of being careful that the product is not actually burning. A replacement product would then have to be purchased.

Can I wash my Heat Pack?

Do not place the full heat pack in the washing machine or get the contents wet as it can damage the product. It is advised that you surface clean with a damp cloth or sponge to clean the product. If the product becomes wet then it needs to be dried out before the wheat inside germinates and we suggest placing the product in a warm room to dry at room temperature. If the wheat inside does germinate then we do not recommend that you use the wheat bag.

Can I purchase removable covers that can be washed for my heat pack?

On most of our products you will see the option to purchase a removeable cover for cleaning. If this is shown as an option then this cover is removable from the main heat pack and can be washed with like colours in the washing machine or by hand at a low temperature of 30 to 40 degrees.

Is it possible to warm the heat pack other than the microwave?

No. Our heat packs are safety tested to be exclusively heated in a microwave.

How do I fit a larger heat pack in my small microwave?

Some of our products are larger when flat than the size of smaller microwaves. It is ok to “loosley scrunch up" the heat pack lightly to fit into the microwave but is important not to fold the pack in half tightly as this can create hot spots when heating.

Are these heat packs suitable for young children?

No. We do not recommend that heat packs are given the very young children under the age of 3 years old. Adult supervision should always be provided and should only be heated by an adult with great care.

Are these products a medical product?

No. Clear Prospects Ltd manufactures WheatyBags® microwave heat packs which have been tested to safety standard BS8433:2004.  We are not Doctors and our products are not medical products (our heat packs are simple microwave heat packs that provide warmth and comfort). If you are unsure about their use, we recommend you consult your doctor before using heat packs in general.
