Warm your hands up

Bought a pack of these to try. Pack of 2 for 39p in Home bargains. You take it out and it starts to heat up when exposed to the air. Got nice and toasty and was still warm 6 hours later. For 20p a day I will be buying a whole lot more of them

I do believe one of your new years resolutions is to ''work less on the tools''... Get back to your nice warm office and make sure you push that pen hard 🤣😂😆

They were at the till on special offer. If you buy them in bulk in Stroud you could probably save enough to cover the petrol cost to get here in less than 4 years 😂

Probably could do, it would only really warm up the palm of your hand though when its your fingers that need it the most. I kept it in my pocket and just rubbed my hands on it between jobs.

I was going to say it would've looked like he had crabs, but as it's a friendly forum I thought better of it 😃

I use the Whitby hand warmer, keep it in my pocket on very cold days and it pumps out heat for twelve hours. After the initial cost of around £15 it costs about 25 p to refill on Zippa lighter fluid. Even warmed a mince pie wrapped in foil in my pocket leading up to Christmas, living the dream!

If you have it near to your face yes you can smell very slight fumes but in my pocket nothing. Smells much less than a zippier lighter as a reference. It is always in the provided pouch as it gets Very hot 🥵

As it's starting to get a bit colder now  Aldi Special Buys  merino glove liners and beanies I have found the glove liners to be really good and I wear the beanie under another hat I bought mine last year and field-tested them in Finland were the average temperature was -19 through the day although it dropped to -27 one day

My wife hikes Penyfan in the Brecon Beacons most mornings and even when it’s covered in snow and the wind chill is nasty she says her merino wool thermals are amazing. I recently got a gortex lined wool skiing bobble hat that is great too, warm and dry. This weather sorts the men from the boys but the right kit helps!

ill have a look in Aldi’s thanks for heads up
