Cassandra Plain Hot Water Bottle
Advantages: cosy, relaxing, decent price
Disadvantages: can sometimes leak
Ever since I can remember my mum used to put a hot water bottle in my bed before I went to bed so that it was nice and warm when I got in. It was natural that when I moved out I would buy one of my own and I chose a nice pink one from Amazon and it cost £4.25 which I think is reasonable. You can also buy them from markets and places like that, and they are probably cheaper there. I also have one in a cover which is a small one that I got with a gift set and I allow my son to use this.
When you fill the hot water bottle there are a few things to note. Firstly you should always be very careful as you are dealing with boiling hot water-you could let the water cool down somewhat before pouring it into the hot water bottle but if like me you are quite impatient and don't wait for it to cool down a lot you need to be very careful when you pour the water in as if you pour it too fast it is likely to bubble back up and splurt out over your hands. You should always only fill the water bottle until it is around 2/3 full to avoid major spillages.
When you are filling the water bottle you should hold the bottle by the neck as you pour the water in. Once you have filled the bottle to the desired level you should screw the top back on. A useful tip to note is just before you fully secure the lid you can squeeze some of the air out of the bottle so it doesn't expand majorly. Once I have tightened the lid on the bottle I always make sure that I give it a good shake to make sure it isn't leaking.
I have never had any nasty accidents with hot water bottles but obviously you are dealing with very hot water and as such it could cause scalding should any accidents happen. The worst that has happened to me is that is has leaked overnight leaving you feeling like you have wet the bed!
I think hot water bottles are wonderful. When I am feeling warm at night I feel more relaxed and genuinely believe that these help me to relax and drift off to sleep. However there are other uses for hot water bottles too. I suffer from a bad back quite regularly-some of this is posture related and some is actual back issues. I find that propping myself up in bed with the hot water bottle behind me can really help the pain as the heat relaxes my muscles. Hot water bottles are also great for period pains when placed on your tummy. You can also wrap the hot water bottle in a blanket or towel for a less intense heat.
So far I have had this hot water bottle for over twelve months and it has been great so I would certainly recommend them!
