I’m not in the habit of using products like this, but I had a hunch it would appeal to my wife. I was correct, in the short time we’ve had this blanket, she has become a big fan of it.
So what exactly is it? Essentially it is an electric blanket but instead of going on your bed you throw it over yourself on the sofa. It measures 150cm x 70cm and has six heat settings.
It is made of faux velvet and is very soft to the touch, Most impressive, however, is the fact the power cable is detachable and this allows you to stick it in the washing machine.
You’re probably thinking it would be easy to snuggle under the blanket and fall asleep forgetting to turn it off. Do not fear if you’re likely to do this as the Relaxwell automatically turns off after three hours which is a good safety feature.
It’s been fun to use and I can think of times when it would prove useful. Mrs Adams, who feels the cold much more than I do, has made quite good friends with this product so I may not get much chance to use it myself!
The Relaxwell is available from . Expect to pay around .
