Now, the obvious uses for disposable warmers are sports games, snow days, outdoor hikes. But I bet some of the uses you’ll find on this list might surprise you!
1.For emergencies, I keep a bag of hand warmers in my car. If ever stranded on a cold day, you can wrap them in some cloth or paper towels (don’t put them directly on your skin) and stick them under your armpit or by your groin to prevent hypothermia.
2.Keep your coffee warm or your water from freezing on a cold day by sticking a hand warmer in between the bottle and some sort of coozie.
3.Use hand or toe warmers to dry wet boots, socks or mittens.
4.Put them in your sleeping bag when camping on cold nights for added heat. When I went backpacking in Colorado in October, I didn’t have a super cold rated sleeping bag and I FORGOT my hand and toe warmers and my cold toes kept me up just about all night.
5.After you’ve used your hand or toe warmers up, you can still use them to soak up moisture because they are oxygen collecting! Drop your phone or other electronics? Try sticking them in a bag with used hand warmers in it!
6.Headache or migraine? Wrap up your hand warmer in a washcloth or soft cloth and hold it against your head. It should provide the same amount of relief as a heating pad.
7.In addition to helping with headaches or migraines, use hand warmers for cramps or muscle pain! Remember, do not hold them directly against your skin.
8.For photographers, keep a hand warmer in your photo bag to keep batteries warm so you don’t have to miss the perfect shot!
