The commercial packaged handwarmers immediately quit producing heat when
they get wet, even the slightest moisture puts them out. Put them bag in
the bag and then wrap a piece of cloth around them.
I learned about the moisture when I tried using them on a raft rip. I lady
in the front of the boat was cold so I gave her two. I asked here 10
minutes later if they were working and she said no. I asked her where she
had put them and she said under her feet. Her feet where in the bottom of
the boat, wearing sandals, in the water.
