Matalan shoppers rush to buy cheap winter essential that 'stays hot for hours' – & you can avoid putting the heating on | The Sun

IF you are still trying to hold off from reaching for the thermostat this winter then you may need a helping hand. 

One of the cheapest and most affordable ways to stay warm when it's cold is using a hot water bottle.  

But most hot water bottles don’t stay warm forever, and there is always the risk of burning yourself when you are in a rush to fill it up. 

Now shoppers are flocking to nab technology’s latest invention a rechargeable hot water bottle. 

Unlike traditional hot water bottles, they don’t need to be filled up with hot water every few hours. 

Most can be charged in less than 15 minutes and then they will stay warm for up to six hours. 

Matalan is selling a Carmen spa rechargeable hot water bottle which is perfect for keeping your hands warm this winter. 

The winter warmer is selling for £20 and has received rave reviews online. 

One user said: “Brought this for my mom who’s in her 80s she really loves it,  plus I don’t have to worry about her burning herself on the kettle.”

Another said: “Very easy to use, quick to charge, stays hot for hours, excellent value, highly recommend.”

Keeping warm this winter

There are a few tricks you can use to stay as warm as possible this winter.

If you've got a few pennies to spare consider buying an electric blanket. They are another great way to keep warm and most cost around 3p an hour to run.

Don't forget about preventative measures, draught-proof your home and seal your windows to stop air coming in.

Prices for draught excludes start from a fiver in most stores but a thick blanket rolled up will work just as well.

Loft insulation is also very important as it can stop heat escaping, therefore slashing your heating bill.

You can buy insulation from all local builder merchants or retailers such as B&Q and Wickes.
