The following list of words has been altered from the original word list:

heat
jeans
ram
silk
mice
malt
pest
belly
tears
drapes
bill
gutter


The first letter of each word above has been changed to that of one of the other words in the list i.e. the first letters of the words have been exchanged.

Rearrange the first letters of the words to form the original list of words. While doing so, see if you begin to notice a theme emerging from the newly-formed words.

Determine the common theme of the original word list, and then solve this teaser by identifying the one word not belonging in the group i.e. the one word which does not fit the theme.
