Perhaps, like most people you have suffered from the pains of a sore muscle or cramps.  To alleviate this pain, you crave nothing more than to place something warm against the pained area. What are your options?

1.  You could purchase an electric heating pad. Of course, that means you need to sit somewhere near an outlet.

2. You could purchase a package of adhesive heating pads.  However, most of these have a strong odor.  Also, they are single use items, making them rather expensive.

3.  You could purchase a microwavable heating pad.  Reusable and no need for an outlet, makes this a good choice. . .

But for the best choice:

4. You could make your own microwavable heating pad.  All you need is 2 cups of rice and a clean knee-high sock.


Carefully pour rice into sock.

Tie a knot to prevent rice from escaping.

Place heating pad in microwave for 1 minute*, and it’s ready for use!

*Heating times may vary.  Start with 30 seconds, and check the temperature of the heating pad, adding more time if needed.

    I love microwavable heat bags when I have a cold in my shoulder. My sister made me one but with just one addition of some lavender from the garden you get a heat pad that relieves pain and smells divine.
