What is it?Hot Bootiesare aslipper-type foot warmer you heat in the microwave before you put them on.

What does it claim? Hot Booties promise to 'warm your feet in seconds' and provide 'long-lasting heat' to soothe cold, achy or stressed feet.

Who tested it? Virginia Beach resident and jewelry maker Kym Bach

What Are The Instructions? Place Hot Booties in the Bootie Bag and then heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Carefully touch to test. If they're not warm enough, heat in 15 second increments but for NO LONGER than 90 seconds total.

Did it work? Bach really liked them. She found that Hot Booties lived up to the claim to warm her feet in seconds. The one thing she found a little odd was walking in them. She said the natural linseed that holds the heat made her feel like she was walking on sand.

While she gives Hot Booties a good review, she'd like them even better if they covered her ankles.

Cost/Availability? You can purchase Hot Booties at Michael's for $14.99.

Cautions:
Use care when removing the booties from your microwave because of the heat.
Don't leave the booties unattended during heating because overheating may cause the cover to ignite. Allow Hot Booties Foot Warmers to return to room temperature before reheating.
Due to variations in microwaves, it may be necessary to adjust temperature and time settings.

NOTE:
Hot Booties can also be used cold to soothe and cool tired, over-heated feet. Just place the Hot Booties in the Bootie bag and put it in the freezer.
