Cramps are painful, they hurt, and they can keep you from getting a good night's sleep. Fortunately, there's a solution that doesn't involve painkillers and it's so simple - our extra-long hot water bottle! There are plenty of reasons why hot water bottles still work so well today, but in this blog post, I'll be focusing specifically on how to use one to ease period cramps.
What is an extra-long hot water bottle?
An extra-long hot water bottle is a hot water bottle that is longer than normal. It can be used to ease period pain, to warm up the bed, or after a wild swim
It's made from a soft, flexible material which makes it easy to use and comfortable in your hands as well as on your body. The best part? It costs less than £25!
This product works great for saving money during times like these when our cost of living crisis has hit us hard with price increases across the board.
How do hot water bottles help ease period pain?
We all know that hot water bottles can help to ease period pain. The heat encourages blood flow, which eases muscle tension and helps to reduce the pain of period cramps. A warm heat also relaxes the muscles and nerves, helping you feel more comfortable in your own skin as well as providing comfort during periods when you may be feeling vulnerable or uncomfortable.
In addition to using our extra-long hot water bottle for comfort during your period, you can use it throughout the day whenever there is an area on your body that needs relief from aches or pains such as:
- Lower back pain (from sitting at a desk all day)
- Neck stiffness from sleeping poorly at night
How do I use fluxies extra long hot water bottle?
To use our extra-long hot water bottle, simply fill it with hot water, wrap it around your waist, and tie it. You can also place it on your bed. The heat from the water will transfer to your body, creating an effective way to get rid of cramps. If you're using a towel as a cover, make sure that there's enough room for air circulation so that your skin doesn't become too warm or too cold!
For best results, try moving around until you find a comfortable spot for your fluxies extra long hot water bottle--this may involve turning over completely or rolling onto one side or another. Once settled into place, wrap up both yourself and your fluxies extra long hot water bottle with blankets so everything stays nice and snugly warm throughout the night!

How long will my hot water bottle stay hot?
How long will my hot water bottle stay hot? We're here to help.
Water bottles can be a great way to keep warm on a chilly day, but how long will they stay hot? If you're wondering how long your water bottle will stay warm and how long it takes to heat up, we've got your answer.
The first thing you'll want to do is fill the bottle with boiling water. The more water in the bottle, the longer it will take to heat up. Once you've added as much water as you'd like, screw the lid on tightly and shake or roll it back and forth for about five minutes (this helps mix the water).
Now that your bottle is ready for use, place it in an insulated location where it won't get too cold or too hot—you don't want your bottle sitting on top of an ice pack! This can cause damage over time and shorten its lifespan.
You can expect your bottle to remain warm for up to four hours when filled with boiling water—and if you're lucky enough to have one of our new vacuum-insulated bottles, they'll keep their heat even longer!
What is the size of long hot water bottles?
The long hot water bottle is 71cm long and can easily fit around your body. It's super comfortable, and you'll love how easy it is to wrap yourself up in it.
Are hot water bottles safe to use?
Water bottles are safe to use. They have been around for many years, and they're still a popular choice today. Our extra hot water bottles are made from natural sustainable rubber and manufactured to the British Standard 1970:2012 certification.
If you're concerned about safety issues related to using hot water bottles (such as burns), don't worry: there are many ways that you can prevent these injuries from occurring. For example: make sure that your bottle fits well against your body so it doesn't slip out of place; put on clothing overtop of the bottle so no part of it touches bare skin; check regularly for signs of damage (such as tears) before each use; only fill the hot water bottle halfway up to avoid any spillages.
Other tips to ease period pain

- Take a hot bath. A warm bath can relax tense muscles and relieve period pain.
- Get sore boobs before your period? Try reducing caffeine, changing your diet, and wearing comfy clothes.
- Try a heat pad or heat patch. These can also be a good way to reduce period pain.
- Eat ginger during your period if you want something more natural than medication; studies show that fresh ginger helps relieve menstrual cramps by increasing blood flow through the body and reducing inflammation in the uterus.
