We love the Spindel

As a newly-wed, there are some tasks I adore doing...and some I loathe. Ironing, mopping...you can keep - but doing the laundry? Any day. I would happily do washing every single day - I'm not sure whether it's the smell of fabric softener wafting through the flat, or clean, fresh laundry drying on the racks, but I truly adore it.

However, we do live in a flat - and although we have a drying rack, it can take quite a while to dry. We have a pretty awesome washing machine, but it can really only do so much once everything is washed and spun.

I've never been a fan of a tumble drier - apart from the ridiculous amount of electricity it uses, it's very harsh on your clothes and generally does more harm than good. What can we do then? Ah, enter the Spindel.

Having seen it online, I was intrigued and started looking into buying one for us - at around R1500 it was something I was willing to invest in (after all, it would allow me to do even more washing in a shorter period of time) - and before I could, they sent me one to try and review. Happiness. It's fairly small and compact - small enough for us to keep it in our study cupboard. You simply plug it in, place up to 4.5kg washing inside the drum (we fold ours for even weight distribution) and let the magic happen. You can watch a demo video here.

Even after a full washing machine spin cycle, we've never got less than a full 250ml from the Spindel after a load of washing - sometimes as much as 600ml. We're still in awe.

Why use Spindel?

FAST DRYING : Air dry laundry in a fraction of the time, crtain fabrics can be ironed immediately
SAVE ELECTRICITY : Uses 100 times less electricity than tumble drying, lower impact on the environment
PRESERVE FABRICS : No heat damage and safe for all fabrics, removes detergent residue that can damage fabrics, fade colours and cause skin allergies

How does it work?

Simply load the wet laundry, turn the switch on and watch the water pour through the spout. The stainless steel inner drum accelerates up to 2 800 revolutions per minute, extracting the majority of the residual moisture without damaging even the most delicate fabrics.

After the 3 minute cycle is complete you can air dry your laundry in a fraction of the time, iron certain fabrics immediately (i.e. fabrics with synthetic fibre), or run a significantly shorter cycle in the tumble dryer to save energy and reduce heat damage.

Note - I received a Spindel to review. All opinions are my own.
