I know it's a bit early to ask.  I have bought an electric blanket for the first time.   Could I ask?   At the end of the winter when the blanket is not in use, do I leave it on the bed, or do I remove it and possibly fold it and put it away?  Would this be safe?  Thanks for your advice.

You can put it away, it's up to you

You can leave it on all year...but it will probably last a whole lot longer if you remove it and ROLL it up (better than folding) and keep in a dust-free place (preferably in some sort of bag, like an old pillow case).

We keep ours in the thick plastic bags they were sold in

I take ours off and wash it. Then it gets losely folded into four and put in a plastic bag under the bed.

Wash an electric blanket ?

Yes Anne, most of them are washable these days, I didn't believe it either!

Most modern electric blankets are washable, with the cable section removed obviously, but check. 

I've said on another thread about them, ours is like a mattress protector, the cable plugs into a bit of it. You just unplug the cable and throw the thing in the washing machine.
Modern technology eh, marvellous 😊

Isn't technology wonderful !!

Wash it, then it's up to you - put it back or roll it up and stow it for the Summer.
