Additional stitch lines have been made in manufacture to the Shoulder, Leg & Knee Heat Packs and Wheat Bags to hold the wheat contents in place for even distribution of the warmth which will happen once warmed in the microwave.  This Heat Pack and Wheat Bag, like all our products in the Pain Relief range can also be placed in the freezer to then use as a cold press.

Heat loss During Testing

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

  • The Shoulder, Leg and Knee hot pack reached a maximum 65 degrees which is a lovely comfortable warmth.
  • That it retained a useful heat for well over an hour depending on the conditions of use.
  • After 1 heating cycle and 1 hours of continual use, this microwave heat pack had only lost 43% of its peak temperature heat which we consider a very good length of time.

The approximate weight of the heat pack is 1100gms.

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.

    What a wonderful product! I am absolutely delighted with my purchase of a Wheatybag. I only wish I had ordered one sooner! It is so comfortable, easy to use, and wraps around my sore knee effectively, distributing warmth far better than any hot water bottle. I would not hesitate to recommend this product.

    So relaxing! I purchased a wheat bag for my shoulder, I have a damaged rotator cuff and was advised to use heat to help relieve the pain. And I love it, really helps ease the discomfort, making relaxing just that....relaxing.

    convenient to use The shoulder wheaty bag is very convenient to use and I like it very much. It doesn't stay warm for as long as a hot water bottle though.

    Great heat retention. Bought this for various arthritis aches and pains. Very impressive quality and finish. The great surprise on first use was the time that the bag retained the heat for. Very impressive.

    Very good product I love this wheat bag. I broke my shoulder and it is a long haul to being mobile again, the break is mended but my muscles are very painful. This wheat bag helps with the pain. It is expensive compared to others but the size and shape is brilliant, it covers the whole of my shoulder and top of my upper arm. Another feature which I think is fantastic is that the instructions are on the pad on a sew in label. It is so easy to forget how long you are supposed to heat it for, great idea. Really pleased with my purchase.

    My wife loves the comfort This was bought to ease the discomfort in my wifes knee and it certainly makes her more comfortable. It is cut to fit round the knee and to deliver the heat equally around the whole area. This does the job very well.

    Quality item It was great to find a wheat bag that was big enough to cover both my painful shoulder and upper arm together. This one did the trick and was well made.

    Why Didn't I Buy This Sooner I bought this for my dad who suffers from arthritis in both his feet. He's not one for taking painkillers, so this is a great alternative for pain relief. He's delighted and equally relieved to have this product - soothes discomfort immediately and is ever so comfortable.

    Colourful Fleece Covered Warmer I bought this for Christmas for an elderly neighbour who suffers with terrible, constant pain, in her shoulder and arm. Nothing is helping so I'm hoping this will ease it a little.
