Wheat bags

Wheat bags can provide warmth, relief and comfort when used properly but, as with any product involving heat, there is a danger of fire and a risk of injury if care is not taken.

Wheat bags available in shops usually contain buckwheat. Because the moisture content and volume of filling is known, the manufacturer can recommend safe heating times. If you follow the recommended heating time, the bag should not overheat, cause a fire or burn you.

Homemade wheat bags can pose a greater fire and injury risk, because the moisture content and volume is not known, and the proper heating time can’t be recommended. The use of a type of wheat other than buckwheat may increase the risks of overheating, fires and burns.
