6. No, I am not saying to use the rock salt type.

I am saying that I do not believe that it would be the type that will work to warm your feet. I could not find the information that you saw relating to the de-icer used as a hand warmer, so I am not sure of this, but I was thinking that it had to be a certain type or brand of de-icer to cause an exothermic reaction to produce heat. Just a guess though.

LOL, I only have one microwave, and I use the rice-filled warmer all the time. First of all, it never crossed my mind that it might be a tad unsanitary, but also, I doubt that anything could survive that would be a problem. Who knows.
