Is THIS the answer to keeping warm this winter? Shoppers go wild over Aldi’s £7.99 long hot water bottle
Shoppers have been raving over £7.99 Aldi’s long hot water bottle – as they say it could be the answer to not putting the heating on this winter.
The Kirkton House long hot water bottle holds 1.7 litres of water and is 78cm long – ideal for putting in your bed or across the sofa when the nights turn cold.
It also has a faux fur cover, making it perfect for snuggling, and the long shape can heat up many parts of the body at the same time.
As two-thirds of Britons have said they are taking steps to ration their heating as the cost-of-living crisis hits, the long hot water bottle is being heralded as the answer to keeping warm without the expense.

According to Manchester Evening News, the water bottle can be warm on just 500ml of water, the equivalent of two cups of tea.
They calculated that, with current electricity costs, the cost of boiling your kettle for the hot water bottle would be 2p, rising to between 4p and 8p to fill the whole bottle.
Flooded with five star reviews on the Aldi website, shoppers are saying the product is great for staying warm and even helps with aches and pains.
One customer said: ‘This has been a God send for my aching leg and hip. So glad I have bought it!’
The bottle can hold 1.7 litres of water and is 78cm long, meaning it can cover several parts of the body
Another said that the products can help with high heating costs, writing: ‘Great idea for a hot water bottle. With the high cost of fuel, snuggle up with this!’
One shopper bought the hot water bottle in both available colours, navy and blush pink, describing them as ‘sturdy hot water bottles’ with ‘beautifully soft’ covers.
It comes after Facebook user Kaylee Whormsley, from North Wales, urged people to check their old hot water bottles after seeing a This Morning segment in November where Dr Amir explained people should throw away the device after three years of use.
Old water bottles could possibly rip on their owners and cause serious burns by emptying their boiling contents on their skin, like this New Zealand mum who was left with horrific burns after her water bottle exploded.
Several Aldi customers gave the long hot water bottle five star reviews, saying it eases aches and pains and can help with high heating costs
In her post, which has since gone viral, Kaylee explained that a flower symbol on each bottle tells you about the year you bought it, and the month and the week on which it was made to help you calculate how long you should use it for.
If your bottle doesn’t have the symbol, it probably means it’s old and should be discarded.
People thanked Kaylee for her warning, especially at a time where hot water bottles are touted as a way to cope with the cold this Winter.
‘Check your hot water bottles for when they were made,’ Kaylee warned on Facebook.
She went on to say she saw the information on This Morning, and that she thought she’d share it online, due to hot water bottles’ popularity in the wake of the cost of living crisis.
