How To Make Your Own Hot/Cold Packs
Heating Pad With Rice Rather Than Corn
Instructions on how to make your own hot/cold packs
This is an affordable way to make reusable and low energy hot/cold packs. They make great gifts because one size fits all. For each 2- pack, you will need 2 squares of colorful material (12x24 sq in) suitable for making bedsheets, appropriate colored thread, dried feed corn, and any scent of fragrant oil (optional). There are many different ways to make your hot/cold pads, some use dried corn, some like to use rice. Once you begin, you will discover your own method and you can then put your own preference into play.
Step By Step
Take each 12x24 square of cloth and cut it into four equal lengths. Sew two of them together inside out, leaving one side open. Repeat with the remaining two. Next, fill each bag with dried feed corn until 80% full. Sew the remaining sides closed. Check for leaks or holes.
Apply 2-4 drops of the fragrant oil to the outside of the bag and let it dry completely. To use as a heating pad, pop it in the microwave or freeze it to use as a cold pack. See below for step by step instructions and other resources.
