Topic - Hand warmer chemical on harness/gear

sopaz - on 03 Apr 2013

Recently had a reusable chemical hand warmer "explode" in my bag. It seems to have set itself going and then split, covering my bag and gear in the crystallised chemical (sodium acetate I think?).

Luckily I only had a spare harness, belay device and nut key in the bag. I've washed the metal gear and presume this is now fine to use, but could the chemical do any damage to the harness?
