How long do I heat my Magic Bag hot cold compress?

  • Given the different strengths of individual microwave ovens, it might be necessary to adjust the heating time.
  • To heat up your Magic Bag compress safely, place it in the center of a clean microwave and spread the grains evenly. If your bag is too long, fold it in half.
  • To avoid overheating, heat it in the microwave for 30-second intervals until the desired temperature is obtained.
  • After every 30 seconds, take the bag out of the microwave and check its temperature for at least 5 seconds.
  • Do not leave the product unattended while heating. Ensure the temperature is comfortable before applying to the skin.
  • Allow the pack to cool for at least 1 hour before reheating.
  • Do not heat your Magic Bag hot cold compress more than 3 times a day (see directions for each type of bag) so that the oat grains have time to regain their natural moisture. That’s why it’s best to purchase more than one Magic Bag hot cold compress so you can alternate for more frequent use.
