DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Store the wrap in the freezer for a minimum of two (2) hours. It may be left in the freezer indefinitely until ready to use. It will remain flexible even at -20°F. Remove the wrap prior to defrosting the freezer. Note: Always store products in a plastic bag while in freezer.
The most convenient method of heating the wrap is in a microwave oven. Suggested heating times: 600-700 watt microwave: 30-45 Seconds per side, 1100 watt: 30 Seconds per side. Note: all microwaves vary in heating and may have “hot spots”. Be cautious when heating.
Wait one minute (60 seconds) before use. The wrap should feel WARM to the touch, NOT HOT. Hold the wrap firmly against the skin for 30 seconds before re-heating* If the wrap is not warm enough, heat in 15 second increments and rotate the product each time.
The wrap can also be heated in a conventional oven at 250°F for 15-20 minutes. Place wrap on cookie sheet or baking dish in the center of the oven. Do not allow straps to touch the heating element. Flip the wrap after 6 minutes for even heating.
DO NOT GET THE PRODUCTS WET:
The gel will absorb water and swell. If the product becomes damp, lay it on a flat surface and allow it to fully air dry before continuing use. Do not use wet towels under the gel.
Wipe the cover down with a damp (not wet) cloth using mild soap or disinfectant. Allow the product to fully air dry before continuing use.
