Thanks to the polar vortex, it's been a rough winter in parts of the country.
Throughout January, massive snow storms and freezing winds sent the temperatures plunging into the negatives and hitting record lows.
If you live in a place where you can't escape the teeth-chattering cold, there's really not much you can do but to bundle up in layers when you go outside and crank the heat while you're inside the house.
However, the heating bill can easily get out of control and put a dent in your wallet at the end of the month.
But don't worry, we've found a great solution for this problem: microwavable slippers.
Online retailer Prezzybox has been recently offering slippers that will bring ultimate comfort and all you need to do is zap it in the microwave for a few seconds before putting them on.
What's even better is that the slippers are scented.
"Not only will they make their tootsies super toasty, but the boots will release a serene, soothing lavender scent, to get them in the mood for an evening of snuggle and chill!" read the description on the website.
Since going viral, the highly-rated slippers have been selling fast, with many people purchasing them for Valentine's Day.
If scented feet isn't your thing, Amazon is currently selling a pair of scent-free microwavable booties for $29.90 with free shipping.
While keeping your feet warm may seem like matter of comfort, it actually has a lot of benefits for your overall health.
When your feet are warm, your blood vessels dilate, a process known as vasodilation, making it easier for the brain to open blood vessels in the hands and feet. This process is needed for heat to be evenly distributed throughout the body.
When your overall body temperature is off for long periods of time, you could experience a slew of uncomfortable symptoms.
This is why people are often encouraged to wear socks to bed, especially if they trouble getting adequate and comfortable sleep.
So not only are these slippers great for you, they'll make your body warm enough for you to turn the heater down a bit.
Will you be treating yourself to a pair of microwavable slippers?
