choice, as it generates no more carbon dioxide
than if it were left to rot on the forest floor.

Husqvarna dealer Southern Lakes Mowers can

to cut your own wood for the fire.

Electric blankets - when it doubt, throw it out
Electric blankets, although convenient,
can be dangerous so making sure you
are following the right safety steps is
If you can't remember when you purchased
your electric blanket then chances are it's
too old. Most fires caused by electric
blankets are blamed on those that are over
10 years old. So if yours has seen better
days, don't risk it, get a new one.
You should never buy a secondhand one.
You don't know the history of it and it
could be unsafe.
The internal coils of the blanket can get
damaged which may cause a variety of
problems out of your control.
If you're no longer in bed, turn it off. If you
are leaving the house, turn it off.
An electric blanket left on all day is a recipe
for disaster. If you have an older electric
blanket, it may not have an internal
temperature gauge to measure when it
gets too hot which could
cause it to burn.
If you have stained or marked
your electric blanket and
think it needs a wash, then
Your every day electric
blanket is not capable of
coming out of the washing
machine without some internal damage.
The twisting, tugging, and turning action of
the washing machine will damage the
internal coils making it unsafe to use again.
The coils are very important for the safety
of the electric blanket. When winter is over
and you are no longer needing that extra
warmth the blanket provides, then how
you store it is also very important. If it is
possible, lay the blanket flat in storage. If
you are having to fold it, try to avoid
folding it more than twice to avoid
bending or damaging the internal coils.
If your blanket gets wet, do not turn it on
to dry it out, let it dry naturally or save all
possible dangers by purchasing a new one.
Replace any electric blanket that is worn or
torn, where any cord is frayed or where the
temperature control is damaged.
And when in doubt, throw it out.
