Hello! I will be making some heating bags for someone. I have some dry beans for the filling...does it matter what kind of beans they are?

  • Hey sunshine! I made some last year and filled mine with flaxseed. It retains the heat well and the seeds are so small that the bags are really comfortable to use. I found some microfiber faux suede in my fabric stash to use. I made the long rectangular kind for your neck. They help my migraines! I throw it in the nuker for 1:40 and I am good to go!

  • The one that I have they used rice in it. I can smell the rice when I heat it up in the microwave. I suppose it could be flaxseed though.
