How do you make a heat pack without rice?
If you don’t have rice, you can make a homemade heating pad by putting dried beans in a clean cotton sock. You can also place a wet washcloth in a microwave-safe freezer bag and heat it in the microwave. Simply wrap the pack in a towel and apply it to your sore muscles for 15 minutes!
How long do you microwave a bean bag?
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.
