Frequently Asked Questions

How to use an electric blanket?

Electric blankets have had a bad rap in the past, so it’s important to follow all manufacturing safety guidelines to the letter. Leaving any type of heating device on for long periods of time could be dangerous. Electric blankets are very easy to use. It’s as simple as placing your electric blanket under your bottom(fitted)sheet directly on top of your mattress, facing up. Plug the cord into the power, set to your preferred warmth setting and selected zone/s. To get ready for bed, turn your electric blanket on 30 minutes before bedtime and switch it off once you get in.

Can you put an electric blanket over a mattress topper?

We would not recommend using your electric blanket over a mattress topper. It is recommended to use an electric blanket directly on top of your mattress. Some mattresses come with an in-built cushion-top, which is considered the mattress. You may place an electric blanket over a mattress protector if this fits within the manufacturer’s guidelines. We do not recommend using an electric blanket with any type of latex or foam product.

Can you put an electric blanket under a wool underlay?

The natural insulation properties of wool mean you are unlikely to need an electric blanket, but you can place an electric blanket underneath your wool underlay if you are especially sensitive to the cold. Without exception, be sure to switch your electric blanket off once you get into bed.

How do you wash an electric blanket?

It is recommended to wash your electric blanket sparingly and strictly adhering to the manufacturer’s guidelines. Electric blankets are not waterproof, and the electric controls should be removed before washing. Whilst in some instances electric blankets are machine washable, it is recommended that you rather wash your electric blanket by hand so it can be handled carefully. Use lukewarm water, as opposed to hot water and soak the blanket for 5 minutes. Rinse your blanket thoroughly and lay flat to dry. Do not wring or spin dry your blanket.

How do you store electric blankets?

When not in use, electric blankets should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and heat sources. It's important to avoid folding the blanket too tightly, as this can damage the heating elements. Instead, consider rolling the blanket loosely and storing it in a breathable bag or container.

How long do electric blankets last?

An electric blanket is an investment in your sleep quality and on average, a good quality electric blanket can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years. However, the lifespan of a fitted electric blanket can vary depending on the quality of the blanket, how frequently it's used, and how well it's cared for.

What is an electric blanket?

An electric blanket is a bedding accessory that is designed to be placed directly on top of a mattress, with elasticized edges that fit snugly around the corners of the mattress. This ensures the fitted electric blanket is secure for a comfortable and sound night’s sleep.

Electric blankets are crafted from soft and durable materials such as fleece or microfibre and contains inbuilt heating elements that are powered by electricity. This heating system within the electric blanket can evenly distribute heat across the mattress to keep you warm throughout the night.
