    if you wait for it to cool compleatly you can reboil the sodium acetate crystals and they will turn back to a clear watter like substance. then if you want you can make the reaction and hardning happen over and over again. if you get really board seal some of the liquid in a baggy with a peice of dull tin and you can make your self hand warmers that you can use over and over agian, just boil to recharge :)

    what if instead of just touching it, u put your finger all the way inside the try and kept it there. would it get stuck? and inside of lots of handwarmers is that black powder. is that it?
