Corn Bags for Staying Warm
Posted 16 January 2009 - 12:02 PM
Have you every tried corn bags to stay warm? These are home made (of course they also sell online) cloth bags about 22 x 9 inches filled with about 4 pounds of clean feed corn.
I received one as a gift last year and this year I made them and gave for gifts.
Anyway, you put this bag in the microwave for 3 minutes and it stays warm for an hour or more. I lay it in my lap while I am at the computer and also take it to bed with me. It is great! Better than a heating pad cause you don't have to worry about turning it off!

Yes, these are wonderful, aren't they? We have an instruction page for Heatsocks on the main site. They are also good for keeping foods warm, especially bread and buns. I make mine with rice, I haven't tried corn yet. Thanks for the idea!

Not only do I have several freinds who would find these very useful, but also family members...myself included!
Hope you are having a good weekend!

I have made them with rice, corn and wheat and I suppose any grain or bean would work. My favorite is deer corn.
