No pain, no gain

Today, I've been using a clay pad to warm up my stiff neck muscles. I put it in the microwave as instructed on the box, just as I've been doing for weeks. This time, the bag exploded, splattering sticky clay. Now my neck is even more sore from reaching inside to clean the microwave. FML

Had one too, mine lasted 2 years before exploding so violently it broke my microwave's door

I'm not sure it would have the same effect as the clay pad, but rice in a sock and heated helped relieve my sore neck issues and it won't explode.

Initially, I voted no, but as I read this again, I see the humor. I say yes.

Initially I voted thumbs down on your comment, then I read it again... Never mind it's still a thumbs down.

You know that's not how it works right? You choose between ydi and fyl not yes and no.

They meant when moderating

Sounds like a sticky situation. Hope you find some relief soon, OP!

That's one intense explosion.

Did you use the popcorn button?

Next time try a kiln.

This. The worst risk is setting it on fire, which, since you should be in tame of your microwave when using it (especially with non-food items) you should be able to notice and turn it off before it finishes catching fire. They do start to smell after a while, though.

My mom makes these warmable rice bags for us. They last forever and never explode or anything. You can also put a little lavender oil or cinnamon or something inside if you don't like the smell of the warm rice. She also made me a bag this winter of one with a bunch of hard mixed beans. It actually holds the warmth a lot longer than the rice. Warm them for 2 minutes and you're good to go.

I'm using coarse salt. It can be heated to any temperature safely, cheap, and takes any shape.

I'd honestly just buy a new microwave.

Might I recommend a wheat pillow from now on?

You could heat up some sea salt in a pan and wrap it up in a cloth. It stays pretty warm for a while.

F that. Buy a new microwave.
