Space Heaters & Heated Blankets
During the winter months its hard to stay warm. We bundle ourselves up in coats and heat up our cars a good while before we get in them. However once we get home we tend to use blankets, fires and space heaters. All of these items can allow us some level of comfort when the weather is chilly. However, do you really know the safety precautions to take for these items? Heated blankets are great for snuggling on the couch but once it is bedtime make sure they are unplugged and away from children. Ditch the old heated blankets! Newer heated blankets have timers and heat settings on them. Space heaters should not be left on during sleep either. It is important to keep running space heaters away from comforters, curtains and any object within its reach that could potentially catch fire.
