It is safe, as long as the blanket is not too hot. Keep it cooler, and try not to cover up the cord leaving the blanket at the foot of the bed.

Can I use a woollen underlay or mattress protector with my electric blanket? Yes, if you have a Safe & Sound electric blanket manufactured in 2005 or later, it can be used in conjunction with an underlay, providing it does not have a heavy rubber backing. The underlay or mattress protector can be placed either on top of the electric blanket or underneath it. Please note that your electric blanket may take longer to heat up should you place the underlay over the top of it. If you have any other Sunbeam electric blanket (i.e. not Safe & Sound) or one manufactured before 2005, you should only place the underlay or mattress protector underneath the electric blanket. Placing a heavy underlay over the top of this type of blanket may trap the heat and inadvertently activate the safety overheat protection system, which cannot be reset. If using a magnetic underlay, you should check with the supplier of the underlay to ensure its effectiveness when used in conjunction with an electric blanket.

It is fine to use an electric blanket with a Wenatex Mattress. Please ensure the electric blanket is fitted on top of the mattress cover (not inside the mattress cover). It is advisable that the electric blanket is switched ON prior to retiring to bed and then turned OFF when actually getting into bed to avoid overheating - enabling natural body to take over and keep you warm. As overheating in bed can cause a restless sleep, where possible, please remove the electric blanket during the warmer months and place it in the cupboard - it can be set up again when the cooler weather arrives.

Do you use blankets over an electric blankets?

no. r u kidding me!! Yes my wife and I do use an electric blanket with one or two other blankets. We have for years. We are very safety and health minded, so our process is to turn on the blanket 2-3 hours before we go to bed, then turn it off so we are not exposed to the normal EMF radiation from any electric current. We do not have the blanket on when we are not home to monitor it. We are mindful to never fold or bend the internal resistance wiring.
