Here are 5 quick tips for getting the most out of your microwave body warmer. This includes tips for keeping you safe and making your product last as long a time as possible.
Always read the heating instructions carefully before use as they may vary from product to product. It is very important that you do not overheat the warmer as this could cause serious injuries. This includes trying to fully reheat the product before it has cooled back down to room temperature.
Place a small glass or container of water in the microwave with your wheat bag to help keep it moist and prevent the wheat grains drying, which will reduce the risk of charring.
Ensure the microwave turntable is working properly to ensure that the warmer rotates freely and that the heat is evenly distributed. It is important that you do not leave the warmer unattended while it is being heated.
After use, leave your wheat bag to cool fully on a non-combustible surface such as a kitchen worktop or draining board, then store in a cupboard or other dry environment away from direct sunlight.
Most body warmers are fragranced with lavender or an alternative scent, which will diminish over time. As long as your wheat bag is otherwise good to use, you can revive the scent by adding a few drops of essential oil after heating, such as lavender or eucalyptus.
