Will the corn in my Comfy Cuddler pop when it is heated in the microwave?
No, it will not pop. The corn that your Comfy Cuddler is made from is feed corn which is different from "popping" corn. You may actually hear a "pop" from time to time, but this is the corn cracking and is considered normal. Nothing "fluffy" will come out of the corn.
How long should I microwave my Comfy Cuddler?
For most microwaves 1-3 minutes will be sufficient. If your Comfy Cuddler has been used a few hours prior, the second heating should be shorter. The average time for heating is usually about 2 minutes.
My dog ripped open my Comfy Cuddler and ate some of the filling....is it dangerous?
No, it isn't dangerous, it's just corn!
Is it safe around children?
Absolutely! Children love the warmth of Comfy Cuddlers! Please test the temperature before giving it to your child to ensure that you haven't heated it too much for them though.
Is it safe to use on pets?
Absolutely! Arthritic pets love Comfy Cuddlers as much as people do! Please make sure that you test the temperature before allowing your pet on it.
How long will my Comfy Cuddler last?
I have been making Comfy Cuddlers since 1992 and some are still in use! The life span of a Comfy Cuddler depends on how often you use it. The moisture given off is the moisture that is in the corn. Obviously over time the moisture is depleted from heating. The corn is easily replacable should your Comfy Cuddler begin to lose this moisture.
What conditions are helped by the moist heat of Comfy Cuddlers?
Just about every ache and pain you can imagine! Arthritis, muscle aches, menstrual cramps, knee pain, fibromyalgia, backaches, headaches, sinus pain, neck pain, earaches and tendonitis to name just a few. It's important that you check with your doctor to make sure that heat therapy is safe for your condition prior to use. Comfy Cuddlers are not implied to cure any illness.
Can my Comfy Cuddler be used as a cold pack?
Absolutely! Comfy Cuddlers make excellent cold packs. Simply place your Comfy Cuddler in a large freezer bag (such as a Ziplock baggie) and place in the freezer for a few hours. The corn filling doesn't stick together so you will have a very moldable cold pack for your bumps and bruises!
I have allergies to perfumes, is there a scent in Comfy Cuddlers?
There are no perfumes or herbal scents added to Comfy Cuddlers. They do emit a slight corn scent when heated but this does not bother most people. This corn scent diminishes over time. Comfy Cuddlers are great for sinus sufferers that are bothered by other heating pads on the market.
How much is shipping and handling?
Shipping and handling for 1 Comfy Cuddler is $6.95 for Priority Mail with the United States Postal Service. This cost covers the shipping itself and the cost of the shipping container. I do not make any extra money on shipping and handling. Corn is heavy and each Comfy Cuddler can weigh in excess of 2lbs when it is shipped. If you buy more than one Comfy Cuddler, don't worry.....the price will not double. It will only go up minimally.
