I have not used one for a few years but after another morning of 2°C, I have decided to put it back on.
Last night I turned on the reverse cycle air in my bedroom onto 27 degrees and it was lovely watching tV in bed, however I will put on the blanket after not having had it on for about 3 years, just to warm the bed before I get into it.
I find that fleecy sheets also help with no electric blanket.
I don't have one now, but have in the past. I think they are a good way to warm up the bed before you go to sleep. I have a heated throw rug and cover myself with that in the evenings. I find it keeps me warm enough for a few hours so that hopping into a cold bed doesn't bother me!
When I lived in Melbourne,I definitely used and enjoyed using my electric blanket.Since coming to North Qld in 1980,I have never felt the need to use an electric blanket at all!! Even in the very coldest winters I have had up here,a lovely doona and cuddly night-wear including Bed socks,has been ample to keep me warm and toasty!! Much as many others do not like the idea,I also have my Fur Babies(dogs) on my bed and they definitely share a nice extra bit of warmth!!
no dont have one here but they are wonderful for warming the bed before getting in. I tend to warm the room with a reverse cycle heater for a while before going to be and that does the same trick. Hate it when you forget to turn it off before sleeping and wake up boiling. There are very safe and well fitted versions these days.
Yes, just to warm bed, then switch off. That's enough heat to last the night.
It's packed up in one of my moving cartons & I don't know which one, there're so many!
Doona works well, & if very cold, add extra one!
Yes I have had one for years and still have one. Have found after being diagnosed as an asthmatic later in life, that if I turn the blanket on before going to bed for about an hour the sheets are warm and my chest stays warm and there is less coughing. Did find over the years that going from a warm to cold environment did aggravate the asthma and now I am good. An electric throw rug during the day also helps if watching tv.
We used too, years ago, turning it off or only having it 1, when we got into bed. When it packed up, we did;t bother buying a new 1. Now we just use a hot water bottle, when we need extra bed worth. I also wear pjs & bed sox, but I don't use flannel sheets. (We don't have aircon of any kind either)
