Thrifty hand warmers

Spread the love

Thanks to Pamela for passing along her great idea, how to make instant hand warmers.  I have made these before, but always made them bigger with a large piece of cloth.  I have to say I think these little hand warmers are such a cute idea…..

Of all days to not be able to locate the hand warmer’s, today was the day. Over 17 inches of snow and “nasty” winds!
I decided I had to figure out a way to make some quick warmer’s.

Here’s what I did.

1. I found an old pair of my socks I don’t wear anymore.

2. I filled each sock with 2 cups of Long Grain White Rice.

3. I tied the socks tight.

4. I then folded the rest of the sock over the rice filled part.

I microwaved each about 2 minutes.
(I’m sure time will vary with each microwave.)

These stay nice and warm! You can reheat them over and over
