The electric blanket was invented somewhere around the 1900's. This primitive invention was a far cry from the modern electric blankets of today. These blankets were big and bulky and very dangerous to use. The electric blanket gained notoriety in the 1920's when tuberculosis sanitariums began using them. TB patients were placed outside in the fresh air a lot and the electric blanket was used to keep them warm.
There are many types of electric blankets on the market today and they come in different price ranges. It is probably a good idea to purchase one that has an automatic shutoff. Experts caution against using an electric blanket while you are sleeping, so buying one that will automatically shut off after a couple of hours is probably a good idea. You should also place a thin blanket or sheet between you and the electric blanket to prevent burns.
