With forecasts warning us of a ‘big freeze’ this winter, it’s no surprise that people across the country are looking for ways to keep toasty at night. One question that we get asked a lot is whether it is okay to use an electric blanket on a Memory Foam Mattress – or if it will cause damage. Well, look no further because here’s the answer…
Step Away From the Electric Blanket!
Memory foam is a heat-sensitive material which reacts to your body temperature. That’s how it moulds to your shape, providing sublime comfort and optimal support. Adding an electric blanket into the equation could disrupt this harmony – the extra heat from the blanket may cause the mattress to soften too much, leaving you without the nighttime support you need.
So if you were thinking of investing in an electric blanket for your memory foam mattress, put your wallet away! Trust in the heat-sensitive memory foam to keep you warm even on the coldest of nights.
If you’re really concerned about your nighttime temperature, consider purchasing an Outlast Mattress Cover for your existing memory foam mattress.
Outlast fabric technology prevents temperature fluctuations during the night by storing excess body heat and then releasing it back to you when your temperature starts to fall. An Outlast Mattress Cover ensures you’re sleeping comfortably all year round – not too hot, not too cold. So you’ll be nice and toasty during the cold winter months … and cool during the summer too!
