A good hand warmer works better than even gloves or mittens to keep the hands warm. They can provide up to 130 F of warmth for 45 minutes. When choosing a hand warmer, youâ€™ll find that there are a few different options, including reusable ones. These are considered to be ideal since they donâ€™t have to be thrown away after just a few minutes of use, like many cheap, disposable hand warmers do. They are also an inexpensive alternative to chrome warmers that require refills with Zippo Lighter Fluid. Itâ€™s important that you know how to use reusable hand warmers so that you can get the best out of them.
What is Included in the Design?
These warmers are usually available in different sizes, with the standard size being approximately 5x7 inches. They include a gel pack that contains water and sodium acetate trihydrate, which is a food grade ingredient usually found in salt. A metallic disk made out of stainless steel is also included and integrated in the package. This disk is designed for easy snapping, even for those with carpal tunnel syndrome. After heating the gel pack in boiling water for several minutes, they can be activated by snapping or bending the disk.
How Can Chemical Hand Warmers be Reused?
Once the pad has given off all of its heat, it will remain in a crystallized state until it is reheated. Depending on the size of the pad, it needs to be boiled in water for at least five minutes, until the crystals are completely melted and the gel is liquefied. You can then remove it and store it until it is needed. Just like the initial use, you simply snap the disk to activate the heat once again. As long as you use a high-quality product, such as the warmers offered by Express Heat Therapy, you can expect the warmth to last for at least 45 minutes for each use.
How Often Can Hand Warmers be Reused?
There really is no limit to the number of times the chemical heating gels can be activated. As long as you take good care of them, they can last for years. However, at some point, they may become damaged or simply begin to wear out. If there is a hole in the material, the warmer will no longer be able to operate.
Who Can Use Reusable Hand Warmers?
- Anybody â€“ although the boiling should only be done by a capable adult. The activation itself is simple since all that is required is a snap of a small disk and a bit of kneading.
- Anybody who wants a hand warmer that will work whenever they need it will find reusable heating pads to be very beneficial.
- Some of the people who will benefit the most include backpackers, hikers, individuals who have a sensitivity to cold, people who work outside, and anyone else who has to spend a lot of time outdoors during cooler months.
