IDK about you guys, but I’m always cold. There’s rarely ever a day that I’m not decked out in an oversized hoodie, sweats, and some slippers when I’m lounging at home. But, on the days when it’s really cold, I whip out my Warmies Microwavable Slippers to take the cozy vibes to the next level.
I know what you’re thinking…microwavable slippers!? Yes, you can literally pop these in the microwave (safely, of course) and get your toes all nice and toasty when the temps are just too brisk to deal with. I own all the blankets, sleep masks, and loungewear you can think of, so clearly these were the only thing missing from my hygge collection.
So, how do they work? Simply toss these into your microwave for up to (emphasis on the up to!) 90 seconds. From there, the lavender-infused seeds in the slippers will activate and warm up for around 25 minutes. You’ll feel that the slippers are slightly heavier than when you wear them without heat. (Think of them as a weighted blanket for your feet!)
I won’t lie, the first time I wore them I was completely weirded out. The entire process felt strange…did I really want to put shoes in the microwave!? But, since that’s the only way to do it, I sucked it up and haven’t looked back. I totally get the hype now. I usually just wear these to unwind at the end of a long day, but some people sleep with them on because they bring on that sleepy feeling more quickly than usual.
While there aren’t many downers to these, one major gripe is that they’re not machine washable. And those of you who live in slippers know how important it is to wash them to keep them in good shape. I mean, do you want to be walking around in a fuzzy, dusty mess? Probably not. So, if you don’t take good care of them you can expect to go through a few different pairs.
But, outside of that, these are like a fluffy marshmallow for your feet— and who wouldn’t want to slip into that? If you’re not down to rock the lilac pair pictured below, you can also find Warmies in brown and gray for some more neutral vibes. BTW, Warmies doesn’t only make slippers. You can find a selection of microwavable stuffed animals and pillows to keep you warm and cozy any night of the week.
Sure, they sound all fancy and tech-savvy, but these microwavable fuzzies won’t totally burn a hole in your pocket. You can get your first pair on sale for $30.39 on Amazon right now, and the original price tag is still only $35. Compared to a lot of the luxe slippers on the market that don’t heat up, these are a bang for your buck. So, the next time you’re so over having cold feet—literally—step into some Warmies and get your microwavable slipper game going.
