Using Sushi Rice as Filling?

Does anyone know if it is okay to use sushi rice for hand warmers/heat packs? I've tried the jasmine rice and it was divine, but I have this sushi rice that's been sitting around and I wanted to know if I can use this for my heat packs too. My logic is that sushi rice has more moisture then regular jasmine rice therefore lasting longer.

Any type of rice should be fine, technically, but I would try a sample first to see how it compares with long-grain rice such as jasmine in terms of heat retention and aroma.

My daughter uses long grain rice or Jasmine rice and these work well but in Florida these are only needed occasionally.
I could not find any reference to anyone actually using Sushi rice as a filling except one responder to a posting on ThriftyFun some years ago.
This is her comment:
"Homemade Heat Packs
I had the idea to make one for myself last night having sore muscles from jogging. I poured some Sushi rice I had on hand in a sock and tied it off with a scrunchie rubber hair band. It worked awesome."


I'm not sure about using a hairband as these have rubber inside so maybe think about this before using one.

Here is a comment that I read that I had never heard mentioned before:
"It is absolutely essential to put a mug with some water in it in the microwave at the same time as you heat your hot pack. Without it, your pack could possibly burn or catch fire, and you can damage your microwave. If you give hot packs as a gift, be sure to mention this with your gift."
This link has some very interesting information on the different types of fillings.

I believe that you should just try some of your Sushi rice in a small sock and see how it does.
