ACCESSORY OF THE WEEK
NIFTY hand warmers from Kathmandu may be worth popping in your travel bag if you are heading for cold climes. The PVC pouches contain a metal disc that, when flexed, causes the surrounding gel to crystallise and heat up to 54C. (We tested the hand warmers in Travel&Indulgence’s offices and they stayed toasty for more than an hour.) To reuse, the pack can be reheated in boiling water for five minutes until the crystals are completely liquefied. $18.90 for a pack of two from Kathmandu stores. www.kathmandu.com.au.
