How To Make a Microwavable Heating Pad

This is great to warm cold feet when going to bed or to sooth tight neck muscles. ½ yard cotton flannel 4 cups uncooked white rice 1 Tbsp. whole cloves Cut the flannel into a 14”x18” rectangle. Fold with right sides together, so the rectangle measures 7”x18”. Sew around edges, leaving an opening for turning. Fill with rice and cloves. Hand sew the opening shut. For gift-giving, include instructions: To use as a heating pad, microwave for 1-2 minutes in High.

I actually keep mine in the freezer and use it as an ice pack too!

We add lavender seeds instead of cloves... Same otherwise, including keeping it in the freezer! I love it! Really good for headaches, too.
