Hotties Fleece Micro Hottie Microwavable Heat Pad
Hot water bottles can help you stay warm in cold winter months, and also relieve aches and pains through heat therapy. Unfortunately however, most standard hot water bottles carry a risk of injury as the water inside them is not very carefully contained. Designed to provide a safe yet effective alternative, the Hotties Fleece Micro Hottie Microwavable Heat Pad contains a special microwaveable heating pack that can retain heat for up to four hours.

How Does the Hottie Work?
Hotties are thermal heat packs containing plant based material and water, which warms up when microwaved. As there are no water currents within the heat pack the transfer of energy from the centre of the pack to the outside takes longer, meaning it stays warmer for longer.
Is the Hottie Safe to Use?
Hotties are very safe to use compared to conventional water bottles as they don't contain any gels or seeds, and won't explode if heated too much. However, you should always use your Hotties Replacement Pack with the Hotties cover supplied, or with a hot water bottle cover to avoid burning yourself on the pack.

The Hotties Microwaveable Hot Water Bottle should be very safe for use by most people. However, if you have Diabetes or a lack of sensitivity, speak to your doctor before use.
