Discovering Self Care

My name is Erin Payne (the brand name makes so much sense now, right?!) and I’m the owner/maker/one-woman-show behind all of Payne & Comfort’s products. Some of my favorite things include skulls (duh), pizza, tarot, overthinking and astrology (I'm a textbook Virgo with a lot of Libra and Capricorn placements). I got my start on Etsy in winter of 2015 making hand warmers because I’m “temperature-challenged” as my dad calls it; I wanted to keep warm on those bitterly cold New England days. I expanded to larger hot/cold packs within a few months, again, mainly to keep me warm when I was cold, and cool when I was hot. Self care wasn’t even on my radar.

Flash forward to early 2018. I was 28, working a full-time job on top of working P&C, and going through some SHIT. I suffered a huge financial loss, my personal life and relationship at the time were a mess, my home was in transition...it was the most physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausting time of my life. And during all that time I wasn’t doing a SINGLE thing for self care. I knew I needed to make a serious lifestyle change or risk imploding from all the stress.

I used the transition of moving to facilitate the transition of personal and spiritual growth. I started meditating, exploring new hobbies, and actually taking time for me. Then it hit me. I MAKE A PRODUCT DESIGNED FOR SELF CARE. Realizing this completely changed the way I approached my business and my brand. I want to help others find that peace of mind and body that took me almost 30 years to discover. So heat up a socket sack, close your eyes, put your phone down and REST for a few minutes. The world (and this website) will still be here when you’re done.

Thanks for reading and for all the rad support <3

Frequently asked questions
How do I keep my hot/cold pack clean?

Make sure to remove all make-up before using your hot/cold pack on your cute face! Wipe down your microwave or place your hot/cold pack on a clean microwave-safe dish before heating up. Do not use any perfumes, hair sprays, or chemical cleaning products around your hot/cold pack.

How should I store my hot/cold pack?

If you’re ever not using your hot/cold pack, you’ll want to store it in a plastic baggie. If you like it cold, you can store it right in the baggie in the freezer (which also keeps it from smelling like freezer burn, yuck). If you store it outside the freezer, it’s still recommended to keep it in a baggie to prevent accidental stains or prevent mice from getting into it (yes this actually happened to someone). Note the plastic baggie cannot go in the microwave…but you’re smart enough to know that, right?

I’m sloppy and got a stain on my hot/cold pack. How can I clean it?

It’s okay, I’m sloppy too. DO NOT use any chemical cleaning products on your hot/cold pack as these may be flammable when heated and may also cause irritation when the pack touches the skin. To best clean your hot/cold pack, press a warm wet paper towel to the stain and try to soak out as much as you can. If necessary, gently rub a mild, clear hand soap into the stain and continue to soak it up with the wet paper towel. Let it air dry and repeat if necessary. Payne & Comfort products cannot go in the washing machine or dyer. Please note P&C cannot replace hot/cold packs due to stains that occur after purchasing.

There’s something wrong with my hot/cold pack. What do I do?

Oh no! As long as you are following the heating and care instructions above, it should be smooth sailing. But in the rare instance a manufacturer’s defect does occur, P&C will provide a refund less shipping or a replacement product WITHIN 90 DAYS of purchase. After 90 days of use, P&C can no longer offer a refund or replacement. Please email payneandcomfort@gmail.com with all product concerns. Inquiries will be responded to within 48 hours. Please note stains are not considered a manufacturer’s defect. See cleaning and care instructions above.

Do you wholesale?

Yes! Email payneandcomfort@gmail.com to request more information or find me on Faire Wholesale. Thank you for your interest!

Do you offer custom orders?

It depends. If you're looking for one of my products in a different fabric already available in my shop, I can likely do it. Custom sizes however are more complicated, and I may not always have the time to test new products for microwave safety and comfort. Email payneandcomfort@gmail.com to discuss options and pricing. Please note custom orders will not be available at all during the months of October-December due to increased holiday order volume.

Do you ever offer sales or coupons?

Sure thing! Email subscribers get 10% off one order by signing up at payneandcomfort.com. I also run several shop sales throughout the year! The best way to be notified when those are happening is to subscribe to emails. You can also follow @payneandcomfort on Instagram (although email subscribers find out about sales first)!
