What is a Hot Water Bottle Used for?
Heat for relaxation
When stressed or strained at work or school, muscles can become tense and hardened in adults or children. A hot water bottle can help relieve tension and provide relaxation for the whole body. In general, snuggling up with a hot water bottle on the sofa increases well-being because the warmth signals the body that it's time to relax.
Heat against pain
Hot water bottles can work wonders for various types of pain. Whether it's stomachaches and bloating or muscle pain, the relaxing effect of direct heat application stimulates blood circulation and reduces pain perception. For example, if your neck is stiff and sore after a long day at the office, simply use a specially shaped neck hot water bottle and relax on the sofa.
Heat against cold
In the cold season, hands and feet can quickly become cold. When it's damp and cold, the chill reaches into the limbs. A nice hot water bottle counteracts the cold, displaces it, and brings pleasant warmth to the body. It is also an ideal foot warmer - simply place your feet on a hot water bottle like on a heating pad while sitting. And if the winter nights are particularly cold or even if the heating fails, just take the hot water bottle with a cover to bed.
Hot Water Bottles as Inexpensive Aids for Heat Therapy
Hot water bottles have proven to be practical and versatile helpers in heat therapy. Heat can relieve tension, loosen muscles, and alleviate pain as the heat effect prevents the affected tissue from transmitting pain signals.
The application of heat promotes blood circulation in the affected body parts. This allows for quick relief of painful tension, resulting in a reduction in pain in a short period of time. Heat is a basic human need, which is why using a hot water bottle improves overall well-being - an important factor in the treatment of numerous problems such as:
- abdominal cramps
- menstrual discomfort
- tension, e.g., in the neck
- shoulder pain
- sore throat
- muscle soreness
- back pain
- sore legs

- cold and hot compresses
- Grain pillows
- Warming massage oil
Step-by-step Guide: Properly Filling a Hot Water Bottle
When filling a hot water bottle, caution is always required. Pouring hot water into the bottle can be a bit challenging at first.
Follow these six steps to fill your hot water bottle safely:
- The water should be hot but not boiling vigorously. When heating the water, wait for a moment before starting to fill the bottle. The ideal water temperature is 40 to 47 degrees Celsius.
- Fill the bottle: Fill the hot water bottle three-quarters full. Be careful not to burn yourself with the hot steam.
- Gently squeeze out the remaining air from the container.
- Make sure the screw cap is tightly closed and no water leaks out.
- Use a hot water bottle with a cover to avoid scalds.
- Place the bottle on the desired body part. Avoid direct skin contact. Use a towel if you don't have a suitable hot water bottle cover at hand.
Hot Water Bottles with Covers in Various Shapes and Forms
In addition to the classic, flat, and rather rectangular shape of a hot water bottle, there is a wide selection of different body and bed warmers available with various shapes. You can buy hot water bottles cheaply in this shop, which are designed to fit specific body parts. Here is an overview of the different shapes and variations of hot water bottles.
Neck Warmers with a Perfect Fit for the Neck
The neck warmer is elongated and curved in the shape of a horseshoe. As a result, the neck warmer fits the shape of the neck and shoulders optimally. This has the advantage that the pillow can be worn similar to a scarf. The hot water bottle provides warmth to the neck and shoulder area and relieves tension. Furthermore, it can be easily integrated into everyday life because the hands are free, and the neck warmer stays in place on its own.
Cute Hot Water Bottles with Motifs for Children
Specially designed for children and babies, our selection of cute children's hot water bottles is an alternative to the classic hot water bottle. The fleece covers are washable and have velcro fasteners at the back for easy removal of the hot water bottle. They are embroidered with adorable animal motifs or fantasy images or designed to have the head of a cuddly toy peeking out from a wide garment.
It is especially important to ensure that the bed warmers are not too hot for children. Therefore, a reduced capacity of one liter is particularly suitable. Children particularly enjoy using these hot water bottles for cuddling and falling asleep.
Cute Hot Water Bottles in the Shape of Stuffed Animals
These cute little animals are plush stuffed animals with integrated natural rubber hot water bottles. The heat containers can be easily removed and filled - the plush or fabric animals are washable. Children can warm themselves and play with the cuddly hot water bottles. When needed, the new little friend helps relieve stomachaches or other pains. The hot water bottles in the shape of teddy bears, rabbits, sheep, or fantasy animals are also popular among many adults.
Funny Hot Water Bottles for Adults
In addition to classic models, there is now a wide selection of funny hot water bottles with patterns or designs that mainly appeal to adults.
Cozy Foot Warmers for Cold Floors and Seasons
Extremely practical are the foot warmers from our range. Worn like slippers, these practical heat sources ensure optimal heat distribution and warm each foot separately up to the ankle.
Eco-friendly Natural Rubber Hot Water Bottles
For the classic natural rubber hot water bottles, it is essential to use a cover. Direct contact with the skin should be avoided to prevent scalds or burns. Simply use a hot water bottle with a fleece cover or a cozy knitted cover to avoid direct skin contact at high temperatures. Thicker covers also provide better heat regulation.
Conventional hot water bottles filled with water typically stay warm for about one hour. After that, the water needs to be replaced. One trick is to add a few spoonfuls of salt to the water when filling the bottle. This helps the bottle stay warm for a longer period.
If you regularly use your hot water bottle, you may notice deposits inside the bottle after some time. These are simply lime and suspended particles from the water. There is no cause for concern. If you still want to clean your hot water bottle, you can do so with simple mechanical tools.
It is not recommended to use chemical cleaners or vinegar, as these substances can attack the rubber and make the hot water bottle leak. Instead, you can fill the dry bottle with raw rice. Shake the closed bottle vigorously to mechanically dissolve the deposits.
You can clean the cover in the washing machine and wash it at 30 degrees.
Regular hot water bottles should not be heated in the microwave or oven, as they may cause the rubber to melt. For the oven or microwave, grain cushions are suitable, which we offer as a classic pillow, as a cherry stone neck cushion, or as a plush toy.
In addition to grain cushions, there are also pre-filled hot water bottles. In most cases, these are filled with gel, moor, or grain. These fillings have the advantage of retaining heat for a longer period of time. Heating can be done in the microwave or oven for such hot water bottles. Always refer to the product description!
When used correctly, it is unlikely for a hot water bottle to burst. Make sure to fill the bottle only two-thirds or three-quarters full and do not use boiling water. Here in the online shop, you can buy TÜV-tested, safe hot water bottles.
A hot water bottle nowadays is mostly made of rubber or PVC plastic. While a rubber item perfectly adapts to the body's shape, the material can become leaky over time. In this regard, the use of PVC is more advantageous, as it also allows for longer heat storage.
In addition to the aforementioned options, there are also hot water bottles made of metals such as copper or brass. However, these can become very hot and are mainly used to warm mattresses.
High-quality materials like natural rubber and quality craftsmanship ensure that you can use your hot water bottle for a long time. Order a hot water bottle now at an affordable price!
