Because rice retains and radiates heat for up to an hour, it is an effective and affordable ingredient in homemade heating pads. Make your own by sewing two 8"x10" pieces of flannel together on three sides. Fill the bag with four cups of dry white rice, and then sew it shut. When you need extra heat, place the rice bag in the microwave for one to two minutes, then tuck it between your sheets or on top of your shoulders or slippers while you're watching TV.
