Corn Bags for Staying Warm

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,


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!


Stay Warm!

Hi Becky,


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!

Warm Hugs,

I've always wanted to make some of these, but never did. Now, I have no reason....thanks to Becky and Shelley! :rolleyes:


Not only do I have several freinds who would find these very useful, but also family members...myself included!


Thanks, Ladies!

Hope you are having a good weekend!




Special Hugs,

My daughter got me a pair of these for the feet and they are wonderful! I was having a terrible raynauds attack and put it in the microwave and then on my feet and it warmed my entire body. I wish I had something like that for my hands too.


Warm hugs,

I also love those hot corn bags. I've been making them for years, ever since someone gave me one for holiday one year. I usually make mine about 8 x 8 inches and I have several of them. I take them everywhere I go and also sleep with them.


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