Are electric blankets safe?
Many electric blankets have built-in safety features that can detect over-heating and can automatically shut off in response or make minor temperature adjustments.
As well as this, all electric blankets sold in Australia must comply with strict safety standards. When you first purchase a blanket, read through the manufacturer's instructions and regularly inspect the blanket for scorch marks, wear, discolouration or damage.
Also be sure to never use one on a waterbed and if you need to store it away, roll it up instead of folding.
