Frequently Asked Questions
What sort of microwave should I use to heat my Physi Pak?
Ensure that you use a microwave with a turntable that is working properly, so the wheat bag rotates freely to ensure even temperature distribution.
You MUST place the Physi Pak in the middle of the plate & it MUST NOT touch the sides or be able to fall over.
If the pack touches the sides of the microwave, it could stop the plate from moving & cause a HOT SPOT which could cause a fire!
Fold the pack as per the sections so heats evenly, or keep flat if your microwave allows.
DO NOT walk away from the microwave whilst your Physi Pak is being heated.
How long do I heat my Physi Pak for?
Each Physi Pak has a different heating time due to the weight.
ALWAYS Follow the heating instructions on the sewn in label.
ALWAYS read the instruction card supplied before using your Physi Pak every time!
Every person has a different tolerance to heat, so please check the tempertature on your body before using.
If too hot, wait for your Physi Pak to cool down.
ALWAYS follow the heating instructions given before use & check that you have selected the correct time ie 30 seconds NOT 30 minutes!

Is there a Warranty?
In regards to Wheat Packs & Eye Pillows,we guarantee the item for 3 months for faulty workmanship such as a seam coming undone within this period, but we do not exchange any goods that have not been used correctly ie instructions NOT followed!
If you follow the instructions given, the wheat packs will never overheat and burn.
Faulty microwaves can damage your wheat pack when heating, so ensure your microwave has been tested and is up to date with this testing procedure. (Call your electrician for details).
Storage instructions also need to be followed as per instruction card to ensure vermin do not eat your wheat pack!
How long should my Physi Pak last?
We recommend that you replace your Physi Pak after 12 months if it has been used regularly. If it has been stored in the freezer and used only a little, it will last longer.
As soon as your Physi Pak does not retain its heat for as long as it did, it is time to throw it away and purchase a new one, as the wheat is now at its use by date. If you smell a burning smell it is also time to throw away your Physi Pak.
Once a wheat pack becomes old and has been heated a number of times, the internals can degrade and then when heated, it can smoulder and catch alight.
