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

  • The Original heat pack reached a maximum heat of 60 degrees which is a lovely comfortable warmth.
  • The product 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 in terms of heat loss after warming in the microwave.

Wheat bags - Nice and compact Easy to use (Mas, 12/07/20)
Really useful heat pads - we have been using these pads alongside their disposal covers in the hospital grade fabric. They are very much appreciated by our patients and a useful addition to our non-pharmacological pain management interventions. (Hospicenorth)
wheat bags to the rescue! - I am absolutely delighted with the wheat bags- had to replace mine in a hurry as my previous ones were accidentally destroyed. Perfect for the job and the speed with which they arrived was better than promised. Thank you so much. (busy lizzie)
Great comfort to pulled muscles - Posted very promptly, great communication. Needed the Wheaty Bag for my neck and has solved the problem. (Fifi)
Wheat bags - Delivery was very good and the product also did a good job. (Paul)
Great Wheat bag - This bag does what is ways on the box, what is so good is that the wheat is split into three so that it does not all go down one end like most other bags. Ideal for my husband who recently had a wrist Op and needed hot and cold packs on his wrist to enable more movement. (Daphne Allen)
My wife found the Original Hospital Heat Pack agreat help in easing her back pain. - Great product, easy to use and almost instantly ready with less than two minutes in the microwave. (Bugalugs)
My wife found the Original Hospital Wheatybag a great help for easing her back pain. - Great product easy to use and ready from the microwave in less than two minutes. (anonymous)

FAQs

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.

How do the Hospital Heat Packs differ to the main WheatyBags®?
These products have a natural cotton inner heat pack manufactured from our value cotton range and are supplied with 2 disposable covers to help keep the pack clean.

The removable covers are made from white non-woven (man-mad) fabric with the intention that these covers are disposable and can be thrown away if they become dirty. 

Each pack contains 1 inner heat pack and 2 disposable covers.

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

Please read the “Instructions” shown on our website for 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 absorbent and breathable and will lessen the initial 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 it from the microwave and put it 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 removable 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.

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.
