Snuggie


Has anyone supplemented their heating this year with a Snuggie? Curious in knowing of any experiences with it.

Is it the stuff you put in the washing machine on the rinse cycle?

Yeah, you use a block heater to plug in your electric car. We use them all the time here in Alberta.

As far as using Snuggies go, we tend to wear sweatshirts and have a couple of blankets laying on the couch. You could make your own snuggie by taking an old blanket and stapling or sewing parts of it together.

Awe come on now, sewing and stapling? Red Green duct tape is my favorite!

Good idea. You can now get duct tape in a variety of colours to complement your home made snuggie.


And Ralph, no, he is still floating around somewhere. At least he is no longer harassing the less fortunate.

Do you have to wear your jammies under the Snuggie?

There used to be a product similar to this but it was more like a sleeping bag style blanket. You had to fumble with the snaps and figure it out. It was warm, but a PITA to snap it together the right way.

The Snuggie looks comfy, but it seems like it would be dangerous going up and down stairs with it on.

It reminds me of the clothing monks wear in a monastery. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
