HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR WHEAT BAG

GENERAL CARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Store your wheat bag in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight or in the freezer.

  • We use specially dried and cleaned wheat, but nevertheless it does contain some moisture.  This leads to a slight dew or dampness on your wheat bag the first couple of times it is microwaved.  DO NOT HEAT IT FOR LONGER! Just put it on a hot radiator for a couple of hours, and it will be fine.  Otherwise, it will just stop doing it after a couple of times being microwaved.

  • Do not attempt to wash your wheat bag, it will all go horribly wrong and the wheat will swell up.  Just use a damp cloth to wipe it, and again pop it on a hot radiator to make sure it is dry.  If it is damp when you put it in the microwave it is more likely to burn.

  • Put a small dish of water in the microwave when you are heating the wheat bag, this helps the wheat stop getting too dried out over time, which can lead to burning.  Having water in the microwave at the same time can absorb excess microwaves and prevent any possible damage to the microwave oven.
