Instructions for the Happy Mitts

Happy Mitts contain a removable pouch filled with a therapeutic blend of rice and lavender. Heat the mitts in a microwave and enjoy temporary relief from arthritis, aching muscles and joints.

Heating Instructions

Because all microwaves have different power settings, do not leave unattended. Do not heat on a stovetop, toaster oven or conventional oven. Do not place the outer cover in the microwave. Do not overheat. Heat in a clean microwave for 1 minute on medium setting. If more heat is desired, shake gently and refold in opposite direction to avoid scorching; reheat at 30-second intervals only. Test temperature before use. Insert should feel damp when heated; this is beneficial moist heat. Moist heat penetrates more deeply than dry heat.

  • Use only with adult supervision.
  • Not for children under 3 years old.
  • Important: Do not use on sensitive skin.
  • People suffering from nerve damage, circulation problems or paralysis should use this product only as directed by a physician.
Washing Instructions

Remove the grain-filled insert; wash the outer cover only. Machine wash cover in cold water on gentle cycle. Hang to dry. Do not wash insert. Spot clean insert with damp cloth as needed.
