With the blankets that there are today, they are all very safe as they are made with more stringent standards than in years past, so there is no need to be concerned at all about the safety. One other thing that is available now is some variations of the king size electric blanket such as heated warming blankets, the fancy electric warming blankets, comfy electric throw blankets and even some very decent heated mattress pads.

As sometimes you come home at night and see the little light on, meaning you left it on all day, opps!

Sometimes when you have poor insulation in the house as we did as kids, or it is just very cold, putting a sheet on top of the electric blanket will keep more of the heat in, in other words you create a sandwichwith the blanket in between two top sheets.

If it gets colder in the middle of the night, you simply turn the dial up and you will stay warm all night, no matter what the outdoor temperature is. Getting into your bed each night will always be cozy and toasty warm during the night.
