Like: the pink colour, good size, heat up quickly, able to set timer and heat level. Not sure about cleaning: has yet to wash it. Use: to warm up bedding for an elderly lady before bedtime. Generally I place the rug between 2 bed sheets with blankets, pillow on top. Set both timer and heat level to 2. The bed will be nice and warm ready to sleep on. If in a hurry, I set heat level to 5 for 5 minutes. Then I'll place a bath towel on the bed sheet so it is not too hot to sleep on.
