This product is an excellent heated neck warmer but can be used on almost all body areas and will retain its heat for a good length of time (when heated to our guidelines). There are many options available so you can personalise the product to suit your taste, with the lavender wheat bag being a popular choice for its relaxing properties.

Heating pad:

When heated to the recommended guidelines (at 1000w), we tested the product fully and found the following:

  • The Original heat pack reached a maximum 60 degrees which is a lovely comfortable warmth.
  • That it retained a useful heat for almost 2 hours depending on the conditions of use.
  • After 1 heating cycle and 2 hours of continual use, this microwave heat pack had only lost 30% of its peak temperature heat which is excellent when it comes to heat loss after warming in the microwave

The approximate weight of the heat pack is 750gms.

Removable Covers   If you purchase this Product with the option for "Removable Cover" for cleaning, the outer removable cover will be supplied in the fabric and colour of your choice.  The inner pack will be manufactured from a fabric and colour of our choice depending on supplies available at the time of manufacture (usually our value natural cotton or non-woven fabric depending on the product).  

 

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.

    Best heat treatment ever Bought this for neck pain after trying the stick on heat patches from the chemist. This works so much better, so soothing and because of its size and weight I can walk around the house with it on. Worth buying the one with the lavender, lovely natural smell.
