Aug. 26, 2021


Founded in 2012, Xinle Mulan Electric Appliance is a professional manufacturer of electric blanket and electric heating appliances. Here we share with you how to use the electric blanket to last its service life.

Precautions for use

1, Due to their internal wiring, most electric car blankets cannot be washed in a washing machine. They should not be submerged in water. Clean them on site.

2, When washing blankets by hand, use a mixture of soap and water. Always unplug the blanket before cleaning it and make sure it is cool to the touch.


3, After cleaning the blanket, do not put it in the dryer. Instead, let it air dry. Make sure it is completely dry before plugging it in again.

4, If you find any damaged or frayed cords, replace the heating blanket. If it does not work properly, it could cause injury. Also, don't iron the blanket because it can damage it.

5, When you are not using your electric travel blanket, be sure to turn it off and unplug it. For safety reasons, it is not recommended that the blanket be left unattended.

6, If the blanket does not have an automatic shut-off feature and you plug it in while the receiving power is on, it will drain the battery power. Unplug it when your car is not running.

7, Gently fold or roll up the heated blanket for storage. Rolling it will protect the insulated wires contained in it. Then place it in a plastic bag and seal it.

8, Be careful not to use the blanket when it is folded over itself. This can create hot spots and may cause electrical problems. Read the manufacturer's instructions and use as intended.

Frequently Asked Questions

1,How long does it take for a heated car blanket to heat up? 

This depends on the product. Some heated car blankets begin to get hot shortly after you plug them in. Others take a few minutes to reach the desired temperature.

2,How long will a heated car blanket last? 

The best 12-volt electric blankets will last three to five years if used as intended. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

3,Will a heated car blanket retain heat after it is turned off? 

A heated blanket can stay warm for a short time after it is turned off. Some can hold heat for 15 to 30 minutes. Eventually, they will cool down and act as a regular non-heated blanket.

4,Are heated car blankets safe? 

Some heated car blankets have an off timer to keep them from overheating, thus ensuring the safety of the user. Electric blankets that are used indefinitely can be problematic if they are not monitored during use.

5,Will a heated car blanket continue when the car is turned off? 

This depends on the type of 12-volt plug in your vehicle. Some plugs only work when the vehicle is on or in accessory mode. If the 12-volt outlet is operating without the engine running, the blanket will remain on when the vehicle is turned off.
