Recently, I bought a hot water bottle. At least I thought I’d bought a hot water bottle. It was wrapped in a cellophane-type material and when I got it home I saw that the wrapping had printed instructions on it. I’m one of those sad people who always reads the instructions. Even for a hot water bottle. Or not, as the case may be. I discovered that what I had bought was not a hot water bottle at all. It was, so the instructions claimed, a ‘Heat Water Bag’. The instructions read as follows —
RUBBER HEAT WATER BAG
- Heat water bag is used in medical treatment health and common live to get warm.
- The water temperature that the heat water bag used should be around 90 [degrees] C. The water should be not over 2/3 than the capacity of the heat water bag.
- After filling water, must let the air in the heat water bag out and let the screw tight. Check if there is leak water phenomenon.
- When baby use the heat water bag, should let the heat water bag a little far from baby.
- When the heat water bag is used or storage must avert it to be weight on or stabbed, not touch sour, alkali, oil and sunlight shoot.
- Storage heat water bag should fill a little air inside. Put it in shady environment.
- The dirt on the heat water bag can be washed by soap water than use water wash it clean
- The heat water bag should not be put in the display window so long time, especially the display window in the sunlight shoot.
After reading that a couple of times I sort of understand all of it other than the bits about ‘sunlight shoot’ which have me completely baffled.
