It’s an eco-friendly alternative too, to battery-powered warmers, which end up clogging landfills. These heat packs contain a supersaturated solution of sodium acetate with a metal strip in the middle.

The liquified crystals start to solidify, releasing heat in the process. Each warmer can produce up to 129F of heat and lasts 30-minutes. The temperature will gradually start to decrease. So expect high heat for around 15-20 minutes, after which it will be warm.
These reusable heat packs can be reset by tossing them into boiling water. This liquifies the crystals, making the pack ready to use again.
