If you ever had to slip under the icy bed linen on a cold winter night, you already know how important keeping warm in bed. Perhaps even you have thought about Dracula, and even the spouse, and only after that to raise the temperature under the blanket. Although I can’t agree to marry someone just because of the heat their bodies still need to keep toast in bed and a bottle of hot water is a great way to do it.
While people tried to keep warm bed, ever since the first cave man came up the pile of leaves closer to the fire, the first documented heaters for beds was invented in the XVI century. It was a long metal bowl with rozżarzonymi węgielkami, and while they have done admirable work, also causes a lot of serious burns and fires linens.
Of course, if you don’t want every night to deal with a metal tray of death, you can get a room , which is a large wooden frame built on the pot, which burns fuel. It’s a little too close to a spit-roast for my tastes, but I think that some people will do anything to defeat the cold.
Several centuries later came the stove with hot water. It was heavy, oblong bottle with a plaster with a stopper on one end that perfectly shone with warmth. The drawback, however, is that they can leak when the tube came out, and easily broken if dropped. Despite this, the idea was sound , and it was only a matter of time until someone corrected it.
This time he came in 1903, and that someone was Slavojub Edward has Penkala. Croatian inventor, patented the rubber bottle, which can dissipate heat without danger of burns. Its basic design is still in use, but we have many other options to choose from, including gel packs, bottles made of latex and soft pillow that can be warmed in the microwave.
Health benefits of bottle for hot water
Bottle hot water is not only comfort. Dual devices, therapeutic, and if not, your body could pay for it.
Your muscles are particularly sensitive to thermal treatment, especially when they are shrivelled or sore from overexertion. Heat can increase blood flow to the affected area to divert lactic acid and cause the muscles with the necessary nutrients. Heat is also soothing, which can have a pain relieving effect, essentially acting as niechemiczny painkillers.
If you are stressed, but do not have the possibility of planning a massage, carrying bottles of hot water may be the next best thing. They are fantastic for relaxing trigger points that release muscle tension and act on the painful sites. Of course, it will be even more effective in combination with massage, but then we run the risk of damage.
The hot water bottle should also be part of therapy “is” in case of pain monthly. It was shown that the application of heat up to four hours reduces cramps , making it a great way to deal with the discomfort without medication.
These bottles are not, however, an absolute cure. If you have an injury or you are dealing with inflammation, you should cover the ice rink instead of heat. A good rule of thumb is that ice is for injury and heat to relieve aches, pains and stress.
Of course, the best treatment often is to add ice to the glass and finding a good, crippling decisions, but that’s a discussion for another time.
How to best use your hot bottle
The presence of warm bottles out of the house, it is a good idea, but a lot of people buy one and then just hides it under the sink in the bathroom or in a closet somewhere. If this sounds familiar, you are not getting full value from its bottle, and as we have noticed, you lose a pretty good advantage. However, when working with it it is important its correct use .
First you need to boil water before putting it in a bottle. I know it sounds unnecessary, because it physically does not touch the liquid, but cooking removes contaminants that can damage or destroy the material. If you have a device for the purification of water , bring the water to boil is less important and can be heated to the desired temperature.
After the boiling water, and let it sit for a few minutes before serving. You can even cool it down even more by using cold water or a few ice cubes.
Also do not overfill the bottle. About two-thirds full of many, because each is more podkreśliłby flexibility of the bottle. This can lead to cracking and believe me, you don’t want to leak hot water was difficult. You also need to wrap it in a towel before applying it on your skin, just in case.
If you use it primarily for heating, spring for the larger model that really can warm your bed. Insert it under the blanket for a few minutes before you’re ready to turn, and you will be able to climb a small cocoon, not to wait until the heat slowly spread across the frozen mattress.
However, if you use it for obolałych muscles , apply it directly to the affected area after 20-30 minutes. When the time is right, please take a minute to stretch and massage the painful place that it is now necessary to weaken from the heat. Repeat this several times a day until complete recovery.
