I am a cold feet girl. The rest of me WARM ALL THE TIME…feet though, that’s a problem. Also, my foot warmer husband passed away in June and now I’m really in trouble with no one to warm my feet at night so I resorted to this….
It’s a Sunbeam Heated Mattress Pad.
I had tried wearing socks to bed…which I hate. I’ve tried warmer pajamas, which I also hate so I broke down and bought the heated mattress pad.
When we lived at the farm house the upstairs didn’t have heat to speak of it and it was really cold. We had one of these there and it worked well. Here, we have heat upstairs but I’m pretty conservative with the thermostat and our upstairs naturally doesn’t heat as well as the main floor.
So did it work…do I like it???Here’s the story. The first night I turned it on before bed. I turned it on the lowest setting possible as I don’t necessary want it hot, I just don’t want to crawl into a cold bed. I didn’t really notice any heat as I climbed in. I thought well this is good. Then as I laid there, I really didn’t notice any heat at all. So I turned it up to three.
In the middle of the night I woke up to go to the bathroom and hmmm….still no real heat. I turned it up to five thinking this is going to be HOT.
I woke up that morning…still not heat. Well, I was sure I bought a lemon.
I rolled over and stuck one foot on the other side of the bed and boy oh boy….it was HOT. Here I had the wrong control. All night long I was turning up the heat on the OTHER side of the bed. I needed the controller for MY side of the bed. HAHAHAHAHA!!!
Well the next night I tried it out for my side of the bed…I LOVE it!
I’ve found that I like to come upstairs and turn it up to seven. Then I go sew for a half hour or so and then get ready for bed. By the time I get there, the bed is toasty warm. I turn it down to 2 then and sleep that was through the night. The mattress pad also has an automatic shut off after 10 hours time has passed which is perfect as I’m sure there will be times I forget to turn it off.
I’d far prefer to have Kramer here to warm my feet but if I can’t have him, this heated mattress pad is working just great! I highly recommend it if you, like me, enjoy crawling into a warm bed.
I’m adding this to my list of things I recommend. You can find that tab at the top of the blog.
