Upcycled No Sew Sea Salt Heat Pack

Upcycled No Sew Sea Salt Heat Pack

Ryo has a lot of problems with a stiff back and sometimes all it takes is a little heat for him to feel better.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a stiff neck, sore back, earache, bumps or bruises a nice heat pack can have you feeling better in no time.  If you need a heat pack in a pinch you can easily upcycle an old shirt, some fabric scraps or any other microwave resistant fabric and throw together a No Sew Heat Pack in no time.  We chose Sea Salt because it holds heat a long time and is the least expensive and easiest filling over cherry pits , or rice. Please note that NOT all fabric can withstand microwave oven heating, so be sure to use a natural fabric that will not melt. Acetates, polyester and other synthetic fabrics should be considered not-microwaveable and not to be used in your No Sew Heat Pack.

No Sew Heat Pad

Upcycled No Sew Sea Salt Heat Pack

Fabric 6” x 6”
12” x 1” ribbon
Rubber Band or hair tie ( no metal )
1 Cup  Sea Salt

Instructions
Lay the 6”x6” fabric face down

Place 1 cup of Sea Salt  in the center of your  fabric.
Draw up the 4 corners and then sides.

Band it tightly with the rubber band so no sea salt can leak out.
Cover the rubber band with ribbon and tie in a bow.

To heat your pack place it on a microwave safe dish and heat for 30-45 seconds in the microwave.  For moist heat microwave a shallow bowl of water to boiling in the microwave .  Once boiling place your New Sew Heat Pack on a plate in the microwave too and continue to microwave for 45 seconds. Always test that the pack isn’t to hot to burn your skin before applying it, and never leave the No Sew Heat Pack unattended in the microwave while heating.

Have you ever tried making your own heat pack? What kind of filling did you use for yours?
