This mattress protector is furry, heated, cheap as chips to run and machine washable. We want!

A mattress protector that means you can turn the heating down, never suffer from icy feet in bed again and that can be machine washed? It's almost too good to be true

If you've been on the hunt for a mattress protector but are feeling the chill and thinking you might spend your budget on an electric blanket or fluffy throw instead, search no more. Argos is selling a furry mattress protector that heats up too. Yes!

The Dreamland Intelliheat Faux Fur Mattress Protector is super-soft with a deep, welcoming pile (don't worry, it's faux fur) to not only provide your mattress with extra protection from spills and stains, but also to make sure you feel quite literally as snug as a bug in a rug. Love it. 

This furry find has dual controls and can heat up in a speedy five minutes; its smart technology also responds to temperature changes while you sleep, auto adjusting by monitoring the bedroom's temperature. So while it might get colder during the night, you'll still feel as toasty as when you went to bed. And for those with ice cold feet, there's even extra foot warmth built into the bottom of the protector. Where has this been all our lives!?

Now for the practical details: it's designed to fit deep mattresses with its 30cm elasticated skirt and costs as little as one pence per night to run. So, you can turn the heating off and save money, too. There are six heat settings and it reaches 37ºC, as we said above, in five minutes, plus there's a timer with an auto shut off, so you can fall asleep warm without getting overheated in the middle of the night, if that's your preference. Made from polyester, not cute and cuddly animals involved.

More good news? It comes in a reusable storage bag, is suitable for a single to king size beds, and it's both machine washable and suitable for tumble drying. Hurrah! It costs £89.99.
