Reviews

Good value - Better than the ones available on the high street. Great value. Good size.

just what I was looking for. - previous wheat bags had been too heavy, and had developed holes and "leaked". These are asensible size, easy to manage and perfect for my shoulderss/neck. service was first class score 4/5 Mjones.
By mrs m.e.jones (May 2018)
cosy in bed - I have used wheat bags for many years, but not from this firm. I was pleased to find WheatyBags because recent substitutes have not been so good, I guess the wheat is poorer. I like this one because it is quite substantial. I mainly use it as an alternative to a hot water bottle, so comfortable and easy to move around the bed, but also I use it for muscular pain.

My Sister thinks this wheaty bag is great. - Found the web site through Google search. Easy to view the range of products and place order. Very efficient dispatch and arrived promptly within the time frame specified. The product is just the job - concise instructions and quick heating in the microwave. Provides excellent warmth for old tired knees during this cold weather.

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 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.

How do the Value Cotton heat packs differ to the main WheatyBags®?
Our Value Cotton 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 cotton 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.

Are the Value Cotton 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.

Can the Value Range be personalised?
No.

Are there other options I can choose from in the Value Cotton 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.
