Donna , you need a couple of fur baby's, they will keep you warm. By the time I put down their blankets that they sleep on, on top of our comforter then put blankets over them the bed is overly warm at least for me. And no safety issues. LOL........... Two Doxie's and their b's on top of your bedding, you be plenty warm all night long . Robin

we use brunswick sheets...they are the kind made of fleece. soooooo cozy. i am hesitant to try an electric blanket, due to safety concerns...but do so enjoy being warm when i get into bed. when we boondock at our lot, it's either use the furnace, pulling the covers back to allow warm air inside first...or else body heat.

Thought I'd let everyone know, I'm trying out the electric blanket in the trailer this weekend. It's NOG weekend and supposed to get down to around 37 degrees Friday and Saturday nights. Not especially cold, but I don't have any FurKids or partner to cuddle with... so I'll give this a whirl. Have a twin bed blanket that's only two years old, so it should be safe and I won't leave it turned on while sleeping... just to heat up the bed prior to the sheet show!

I'll give everyone my impression of it's worth when I get back on Sunday or Monday.

I haven't used an electric blanket or pad - but have used an electric oil radiator when hooked up. I love that - can control the heat and it makes no noise.. the problem I had was that it was too big.

But finally - Home Depot has a half height oil filled heater - with a timer with up to 92 on/off setting combos.. (a little much) but the size is great..

great heat - no noise....
