Corn bag heating pads, a practical guide

Corn bags are natural heating pads that heat up in the microwave. They are a great and inexpensive way to enjoy moist heat therapy.

The absolute simplest way to make a bag of corn is to fill a large sock 3/4 full with dried corn. Tie off the opening with string or a rubber band, and voila! The elasticity of the socks makes it easy to change the callus to distribute heat and adapt to your body. A fuzzy sock can be particularly comfortable.

If you have basic sewing skills, it’s easy to make one yourself. Simply sew a square or rectangular pillow from a natural fabric like cotton or hemp and fill it with dried corn. An easy way is to tear 8 to 10 inches of cotton fabric 45 inches wide and fold it in half. Sew along two of the open sides and then fill the bag up to 3/4 full with dried corn, then sew closed (the fourth side will be the fold). The results will be a 7-9 inch by 22 inch bag corn heating pad. You can also make custom pillowcases so you can remove them for washing.

These corn heating pads are usually heated in the microwave, but can also be heated in the oven if you’re careful. Place the bag of corn in a baking dish and place it in a hot oven just turned off. It will take about an hour for them to heat up this way. If you use your oven to cook dinner, put bags of corn in it once you turn it off and by bedtime your bag of corn will be warm and cozy and ready to take to bed.
