Wash and dry the bedding if essential, and make sure it’s fully dry before utilizing it once more. Keep pets off the bed when you’re utilizing heated bedding; they might scratch or chew the bedding and damage the wires. We assume the wires on this blanket might shift extra over time than those in different blankets . The channels sewn into the Sunbeam design are wider, which can allow the wires to shift from aspect to side, presumably producing hot and cold spots. Like all Sunbeam heated bedding objects, this blanket requires a single outlet even for the dual-controller variations. Blankets we tested from other manufacturers required two separate retailers.
