As legend has it, in old rural farm houses, the cold nights were made warmer with a CORN SACK. During the day, a large pan of shelled field corn warmed under the kitchen wood burning stove. Before bed, Mom would distribute the corn into sacks, one for each family member. That hot corn sack warmed the bed, feet or back for quite awhile. Every morning, before breakfast, the corn was returned to the pan under the stove to warm for the next night's use.
This great versatile corn sack bag can be used for making you more comfortable if you have need of a hot or cold pack or just need to keep body parts warm!!
They can also be used for pet beds to keep your "best friends" cozy.
Heat up your bed before retiring at night and leave it at your feet to keep them toasty!!
These corn sacks are made of new heavy duty cotton or poly-cotton material with printed cotton or poly-cotton pillowcases. Each of these corn sacks is 7 1/2" x 16" - a perfect size for shoulders, tummies, knees, elbows, hands, or sore muscles anywhere. These corn sacks are larger and heavier than many of the others you'll find for sale, therefore, are more versatile. No need to buy different sizes for different applications.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE AND CARE:
Today's microwave makes heating the Corn Sack much easier. Heat the entire bag on full power for about three minutes. Some microwaves may take a minute or two longer. You will soon discover the exact time for your microwave to produce a comfortably hot Corn Sack. Remember, the Corn Sack may get very hot, and misuse or overheating can cause a burn like any extremely hot object. Do not use on babies or anyone who cannot tell you that the sack is too hot. If it feels too hot, let it cool a few minutes before using.
They will stay warm for up to 2 hours after heating. These corn bags are also great if put in the freezer for use as a cold pack. Freeze at least 2 hours before use, or keep one in the freezer all the time. Put in a zip-lock plastic bag for storing in the freezer. Take out of the plastic bag for use.
You may wash your Corn Sack Pillowcase, but do not attempt to wash the Corn Sack itself. The water will damage the corn.
You may notice a roasted corn scent after extensive use that will, in no way, diminish the usefulness of your Corn Sack. We choose to add no fragrances or herbs to our corn sacks since SO many people are allergic to fragrances and additives.
THE CORN WILL NOT POP. We use field corn, NOT popcorn!
