You can find hottie's that are collar shaped to warm the neck area and also large pads for greater surface heat such as shoulders and back. These microwaveable heat wraps colours and styles change each season for the latest trends but the tartan style heat wrap is a firm favourite and there year after year.

Q. How does a microwave hot wheat bottle work?
A. By placing the grain filled hot wheat bottle, hottie or hot soft toy in the microwave for the time and power recommended, the grains heat up and will slowly cool down over the next two hours giving plenty of warmth. Very fast and very safe to use time and time again. Many hottie's are supplied with removable covers that can be machine washed. For heat click pads read Heat Click Facts page.
