What a great idea...thanks!!!I burn out an average of 3 heat pads a year.
Another little trick I learned is to buy Therma Care self heating pads.
They are supposed to be used for the back, but I have learned to put them over my tummy & they help take the edge off.
Beats the heck out of a zillion mile extension cord trailing around behind me. :lol:
I hate that mine shuts off automatically!! I wish it'd stay on all night.I bought one from walgreens, I love it!! It is extra long so it fits all areas of my abdomin. I think it was a "sunbeam". It cost between 20-30 bucks. It is well worth it though. It has an automatic shutoff so if you happen to fall asleep, it shuts off after a certain time. It also has heat control settings too, which is nice you can control how warm you want it. Definitely worth it. Shoot, my heating pad is my best friend!!!
