Chilled: Refrigerate for at least one hour before use. Insert each pad into a cotton sleeve before placing on your skin.
Frozen: Keep in freezer for at least one hour before use. Once frozen, insert each pad into a cotton sleeve before placing on your skin. Do not apply frozen compression pads directly to the skin, as this can cause ice burns.
Hot Water Method - We recommend heating your pads by submerging carefully in hot water for 3-5 minutes. Do not use boiling water. Drain water before removing pads. Once heated, handle pads with caution and insert each one into a cotton sleeve before placing on your skin. Do not apply hot compression pads directly to the skin as this can cause burns.
Microwave Method - Please be aware that microwaving pads can cause uneven heat distribution. Place pads on a clean, dry plate in the microwave for 20 seconds, then in five-second increments if needed. Ensure that the pad does not brush against the walls or ceiling of your microwave as it spins. The microwave carousel must be able to spin throughout the heating cycle. Once heated, handle pads with caution and insert each one into a cotton sleeve before placing on your skin. Do not apply hot compression pads directly to the skin as this can cause burns.
