What Is A Wheatty Bag?
A Wheatty Bags is a cotton bag filled with non-chemically treated whole grain A grade wheat that can be used hot (heated in a microwave). Wheatty Bags are a natural alternative for treating and managing aches and pains.
How Does A Wheatty Bag Work?
The cellular structure of wheat provides fantastic insulation properties. Wheat can absorb and distribute heat evenly and gradually ensuring effective pain relief. Wheatty Bags easily mold to the contour of the area that is being treated.
How Do You Use A Wheatty Bag?
A Wheatty Bag is heated in the microwave for a set amount of time with the recommended heating time up to 3-5 mins for maximum safety. Once the Wheatty Bag is heated it is simply placed on an area where heat is required
My Wheatty Bag Isn't Hot Enough Can I Heat It Longer?
Yes you can heat it longer. Heating times are only a guideline as microwaves vary as well as an individual’s tolerance and preference for heat. Older people and young children have a different tolerance to heat so the Wheatty Bag does not necessarily need to be as hot as an adult may usually have it.
Do not exceed this time limit even if the patient or yourself cannot feel enough heat. If 2 minutes is not hot enough increase the heating time in 15 second increments until the heat is hot enough but do not go above 150%. If the heat is still not hot enough we suggest checking with your medical practitioner as maybe a loss in sensitivity may be present and the heat cannot be registered fully. Heating above this time will make the Wheatty Bag too hot and may cause damage.
Wheatty Bags emit heat slowly so we suggest checking the heat by placing the Wheatty Bag on your forearm and leaving for 10-15 seconds.You will feel the heat gently increase and this is the safest way to determine if the heat is warm enough. DO NOT OVERHEAT MORE THAN 150% OF THE STATED TIME.
My Wheatty Bag Smells - Why?
If a burning smell is detected your Wheatty Bag needs to be discarded. Carefully remove from the microwave, place on a non-combustible surface such as a sink or kitchen bench, and let the Wheatty Bag completely cool and then discard. Heat over time will dry out and start to emit a cooked/burnt smell. This is letting you now that it is time to replace your Wheatty Bag.
Fire can occur from an old over used Wheatty Bag that is continually over-heated. It is when this over-dried, over-heated Wheatty Bag is placed in a bed or under covers where the heat cannot dissipate that a fire may occur. It is like spontaneous combustion the heat cannot escape and is in a dry (flammable) area the heat continues to rise and worst case scenario, it may cause a fire. These cases are very rare but caution should always be exercised. If in doubt throw it out.
I've Over Heated My Wheatty Bag What Should I Do?
Most people innocently program the microwave for the wrong amount of time, walk away and do not realise until they come back that something is wrong
How Do I Store My Wheatty Bag?
Wheat is a food source so anything like weevils or mice are going to try and find it. We suggest keeping your Wheatty Bag in an airtight container or sealed bag. If this is the case heat your Wheatty Bag once a month. Alternatively you can permanently store you Wheatty Bag in the freezer, just pop into a plastic bag and seal.
How Long Will My Wheatty Bag Last?
Once again this is like asking how big is big. It is not a straightforward answer as many variables come into play. Generally speaking if you heat a Wheatty Bag once a week it should last a minimum of 7 years. I have a Wheatty Bag that I have heated up to 6 times a day during winter and erratically during the hotter months and it is only starting to smell now and it has been 8 years. The slight burnt smell is telling me it’s time to replace the bag.
My Wheatty Bag Has Burnt And There Is A Hole In The Fabric. Why?
Microwave turntable is not spinning correctly or there may be a fault with your microwave.
Microwaves are very complicated but a very simplistic way to explain them is, it is like a laser beam bouncing around – if this bouncing around is stopped due to the turntable not turning and keeping the Wheatty Bag in the same exact position, this laser like heat will concentrated in one area and cause a burn.
How Long Will The Heat Last?
This is not an easy question to answer; it’s like how big is big? There are some factors that will need to be taken into account. If the Wheatty Bag is placed behind your back while you are sitting in a chair then the heat is going to remain longer (maybe up to 40 minutes) as the heat is trapped by your back and the chair. If a Wheatty Bag is sitting on your stomach the air surrounding the Wheatty Bag will make the Wheatty Bag cool quicker. The cooler the surrounding air, the quicker the Wheatty Bag will cool. Heat may last 20 minutes in this environment. The most benefit from heat therapy is gained in the first 15 minutes.
Can I Re-heat My Wheatty Bag Even Though It Isn't Cool Yet?
Yes you can re-heat the Wheatty Bag even if it is still a little warm.Re-heating for half the original heating time. Please shake the Wheatty Bag and test before applying it to the area (or person) to be treated.
Can I Wash My Wheatty Bag?
You can wash the outer bag but not the inner one. You can use a damp sponge to lightly clean the outside of the bag. If the Wheatty Bag becomes a little damp then place into the microwave and heat for the recommended time.
