These velvet rice bags can be left in the fridge or freezer and taken out and cuddled when you are overcome by the heat, as your fridge or freezer is on all of the time, using the rice bags saves you expensive power bills for cooling you down, or they can also be microwaved and used to warm you on cold days or nights. The rice bags can also be used for swelling and sprains and using them during menopause for hot flushes is also a welcome relief from the heat and they are more comfortable to use on your skin than other cold packs as they shape themselves to you and they don’t leave wet areas. The rice bags stay cool or warm for one and a half to two hours at a time so having a few at hand to rotate them is a good idea. They do not have an unpleasant smell like the wheat bags do.
Do not allow your rice bag to get wet, dabbing it with a clean moist cloth for cleaning is okay but do not submerge your rice bag in any liquid.
