Last year October I posted my review on the Spindel Laundry Dryer. You can read the full review here.
To me, a Spindel was the item that made sleeping beauty sleep but over the past couple months, I’ve learnt that Spindel is also a little helper. 😛 😉
Spindel is a specialist laundry dryer that uses spin power instead of heat to remove up to 80% of moisture from fabrics in just 3 minutes. Plus, it uses 100 times less energy than a tumble dryer! It also extracts residual detergent and mineral deposits from fabrics, so laundry dries cleaner and feels better too. Spindel can be used with machine or hand-washed laundry and is safe for all fabrics. For more information visit www.spindel.co.za
Seriously… I did not consider buying a Spindel because it seemed easier to just use the spin cycle twice. It sounded like a waste of money and hence I never bothered to research it further.
Spindel does so much more than a second spin cycle and that with half the ‘damage’ on my clothes.
Interest rates are up, electricity is up, petrol is up, food prices are up. This year we need all the help we can get to save money – especially during winter! The place to start is your home, and in fact, making your home more eco-friendly will help you save money while doing your part for the environment.
Tip 1 – Replace and switch off
Replace all light bulbs with LED or long life. Turn off lights, plugs and especially cell phone chargers when not using them. Use multi-socket extension leads, but turn them off when you leave for work.
Did you know just these few things can reduce your home’s electricity consumption by 15%?
Tip 2 – Invest in a gas stove
A 2 plate gas stove only costs about R400 and is essential during load shedding. It also cooks food faster and saves electricity since the stove and geyser are the two most costly appliances to run. We moved to a gas stove last year and it was so worth it! My monthly bill is cheaper than before.
Tip 3 – Lose 1 degree
Going solar is expensive, so it’s easier to turn your geyser down by 1 degree and switch it off during the middle of the day. This alone can save R100 a week on your electricity bill. Take it further and contact your local municipality to find out about geyser blankets and timer switchers.
Tip 4 – Get a Spindel
Doing laundry in winter is very costly if you are using a tumble dryer, so rather use a Spindel. It’s an innovative dryer that uses spin power instead of heat to remove up to 80% of the leftover moisture from clothes in just three minutes. Laundry dries in a fraction of the time and it uses 100 times less electricity than tumble drying. Spindel is also safe for all fabrics – perfect for those winter woollens and hand washed delicates.
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.
The beauty of this is that it actually saves me money and time.
Now it can help you too. 😉
