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

Please click on the “Instructions” tab online or the labelling on the product on arrival.

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

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. 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. 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. Please throw away the heat pack being careful that the product is not 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 some 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 designed 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 “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.

    Didn't fall off this one Needed to cover a lot of lower back so small bag unsuitable; this one is perfect. Excellent quality on it's own, even better with the strong cover.

    Husband's Comfort Blanket! Excellent service and product. Very well made and heats up to the correct temperature, retaining the heat for a considerable period. My husband suffers from back pain and he finds this gives him relief, as well as being comfortable to lie against. I particularly like the washable cover which is very hygenic.

    Well made wheat pack The wheat bag is well made with strong cotton material. It is the same size as my old one which I have used for 5 years as I have a severe back problem. It is large enough for a back

    Perfect for large area pain This large Wheaty bag is perfect for my lower back pain, a good size so the heat is evenly distributed across the whole of my lower back. I also lay it round my hip which it is also a good shape for.

    WHAT A RELIEF I tore a muscle in my back which was agony - the wheatybag provided very welcome relief and I think helped the healing process. Such a simple but very effective idea!

    Had to get another one! Our daughter had a sore back and hip (a little to much running) and 'borrowed' my wheaty bag that I tend to use fairly constantly, rather than have a to share, she has kept the older one and I treated myself to another, any excuse!!

    Excellent purchase I was so impressed with the regular wheat bags that I bought that I sent for a large one to help my wife's back. It really does the job for her, wish I bought them earlier.

    The ultimate soothing comfort Love this wheaty bag. With a fine lavender sent and so easy to heat it is a must. It has a large surface area so you just about wrap it right round your body. It is really light weight too unlike other brands I have used and that makes a huge difference. Very impressed. Well done guys! My first use got me a few strange looks because I kept saying "Aaaaaaaahhhh, or ooooooooooooooooohhh!" Highly recommend.
