Stick-On Self Heating Pad by Hotteeze
Hotteeze heat pads are perfect for those times when you need a steady supply of heat. Unlike a wheatbag or hot water bottle which are bulky and visible, Hotteeze are discreet, portable and last a lot longer. Use Hotteeze to comfort tired muscles. Take them outdoors or anywhere you'll feel the cold.
Q. How does a Hotteeze work?
A. Each Hotteeze heat pad contains iron powder, water, vermiculite, carbon and salt. When you open a Hotteeze, the iron oxidizes with the air, creating heat. If you accidentally open it up, quickly seal it in a plastic bag to stop the oxidization process.
Q. Why can't I wear it directly on my skin?A. You might burn yourself. Hotteeze will feel cozy at first, but after a while it will heat right up without you noticing and might feel too hot. You will probably start to sweat too, in which case the pad will slip off and you won't get your 12 hours of guaranteed heat.
Q. Why shouldn't I wear it to bed?
A. If you fall asleep wearing a Hotteeze, you cannot properly monitor your comfort level. The heat might sneak up on you and cause a burn.
Q. Are they bad for the environment?
A. Hotteeze contain natural ingredients which are biodegradable, so when they're done, you can throw them away guilt-free! Its contents can be reused as a soil conditioner, which contributes to the reduction of wastes. The outer packet is combustible and does not generate toxic gases.
Q. Where do they come from?
A. Hotteeze were invented by the Japanese and are manufactured in Japan. Your Japanese friends will know them as KAIRO. They are very popular and are recommended for various remedies. For example, if you catch a cold, a Japanese person will recommend that you stick a Hotteeze over your abdomen to help you recover more quickly.
Q. What if I'm pregnant?
A. Whatever you do, do not put a Hotteeze near your abdomen, and check with your doctor before using it on any other part of your body.
Q. What if Hotteeze gets wet?
A. If you get a Hotteeze wet, you can kiss it goodbye! The water will stop the oxidization process.
Q. What if my pet eats it?
A. If swallowed, rinse the mouth with water and seek medical advice.

I LOVE Hotteeze. I have had several lumbar surgeries. When it is cold outside, my back aches. With Hotteeze, I can keep my lower back warm and move more freely outside in the winter. I do not need to watch my family from the window. They last a really long time and now my roommate uses them when she strains her back or pulls a muscle and she LOVES them. I have shared them with friends and now I need to order more and more! I STRONGLY recommend them.
