Win a Spindel 6.5kg laundry dryer worth R2,599

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. 😛 😉

About Spindel

Spindel

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 Laundry Dryer

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.

Top 4 eco-tips to help you save money this winter:

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

Spindel Laundry Dryer

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. 😉

    I love the fact that the spindel is so energy efficient and uses 100 times less electricity than a tumble dryer. In Cape Town around this time the sun isnt hot enough to dry your clothes and we battle the weather. It takes me around 3 days to dry a simple load of washing which kills me. Baby no 2 in the way and I am struggling. Need a spindel!!!

    I love that the Spindel Dryer can be used on hand-washed laundry and is safe for
    all fabrics. 🙂

    I absolutely love the Spindel dryer – it is so innovative. It is not difficult to use at all, takes very little space & is an absolute life saver. It is so energy efficient, which means you save a heck of a lot on electricity which is a winner for me. I love the fact that it is safe to use on all fabrics & it is absolutely AMAZING that it can dry within 3 minutes! I have to wash every day with my little girl which means i need to keep the clothing dry too. With winter coming along with a vengeance, this would be the perfect way for me to keep her clothes dry & not pile up. I have wanted one of these for the longest time, but they are quite pricey. This would be an absolute winner in my house and what a phenomenal win this would be. Fingers crossed 🙂

    What I love the most is that it saves energy and dries laundry in a fraction of the time. This is exactly what I need I live in a flat and we always hanging our clothes around the place to dry, some times it leaves a damp smell so the spindel would really help alot with drying our laundry.

    Love the Spindel for all the hand washing clothes.

    It’s great for the winter months especially when clothes take longer to dry off.

    Love the fact that the Spindel uses 100 times less energy.

    Since we moving to a flat that has a small balcony to hang washing the Spindel would be very useful.

    Thank you for the competition. #YouBabyAndI #SpindelSA

    I’m expecting my 1st baby in july right in the middle of winter, with recovering from the delivery and taking care of a new born the spindle would be a great help to me especially since with a new born I’ll have laundry to do every da. It really would make the transition into motherhhooda bit easier

    Laundry dries in a fraction of the time and it uses 100 times less electricity than tumble drying. My 2 year old has loads of laundry and with the winter months still ahead and no tumble drier, this will be just perfect! It’s great that it is safe on all fabrics!

    Laundry dries so quickly and it uses 100 times less electricity than tumble drying. My 2 year old has loads of laundry and with the winter months still ahead and no tumble drier, this will be just perfect! It’s great that it is safe on all fabrics!

  30. 2016-06-05 / 09:15

    With a new baby on the way, a messy toddler and cloth nappies that take ages to dry in winter, my favourite feature is that it shortens the drying time in only 3 minutes!! Definitely need this!

  31. Haniyyah
    2016-06-05 / 11:44

    I need this for my cloth nappies. They would dry so much quicker in here.

    I love the fact that Spindel saves electricity & time.Going on to be a first-time Mom in the winter means saving the best way you know how on both of the above.SPINDEL can assist in achieving this goal!Anyone would be lucky to have this.Goodluck everyone:)

  33. 2016-06-05 / 19:24

    To be very honest I love that the Spindle is so energy efficient imagination saving 100 times more energy than a tumble dryer I would take it hands down plus this would be perfect for our baby on the way as Capetown winters are so tough if we had this we would never have to worry about what to put for baby as all her clothes would always be clean and dry with the help of this amazing Spindle, PLEASE BLESS US WITH ONE #praying

    Always looking for time-savers…this is awesome! Family of 5 and although we have domestic help this would be great for her use and finish earlier in the day especially during the colder days. And saving costs fore at the same time. Love it

  35. Deidre
    2016-06-06 / 08:23

    I love that the Spindel is energy efficient and safe for all fabrics. We don’t own a tumbledrier because it uses so much electricity but when it’s rainy or cold, some laundry items can take days to dry, resulting in my house decorated with drying laundry and sometimes musty-smelling garments that need to be washed again. The Spindel would be such a help!

  36. BJ
    2016-06-06 / 09:40

    I just need it. Less electricity to use.

  37. Michelle van Zyl

    With two kids I feel like laundry is never ending and I can’t do a load of the precis is still wet. I love that the Spindle cuts drying time which I need in wet winters! As a cloth mom it also means my nappies dry quicker!

  38. Sarah Vorster

  39. Shay Mohamed

    Fingers still crossed for this.

    Love that after a 3 minute cycle laundry can airdry faster. Also, certain oieces of clothing can be iron almost immediately.

    If you will be tumble drying your spindled clothes, it will use a shorter cycler thus saving time and electricity.

    I absolutley love love love the spindel!!! It makes use of spinning power instead of heat to dry clothes!! Soooo clever!!!

  42. 2016-06-07 / 01:32

    Having little ones and elders at home means we have to do laundry everyday. Sometimes it doesn’t dry on time we have to iron it while wet to try and dry but that also damages the clothes big time. I love the spindle drier because of the technology put in its making because as an appliance on its own has such remarkable features I mean it is fast working and doesn’t damage the fabric which is just too awesome.

  43. Anette Olwagen
    2016-06-07 / 07:30

    Aaaw this will be perfect when baby arrives and the laundry increase! I’ve never really liked using the tumble dryer because of the high electricity cost. Thanks for the review

    Biggest love has to be the energy saving factor. With the price of electricity going through the roof its great to know there is a super alternative to the traditional, energy guzzling monster that is my old tumble dryer! Would love to win a Spindel!!

  46. Linda Williams
    2016-06-07 / 10:22

    Having a baby means lots of laundry, and in winter, nothing ever dries! This dryer sounds awesome and hearing it’s an electricity saving benefit is even better. Fingers crossed that I win it! Mommies need all the help they can get! 😉

  47. Vutivi Chauke
    2016-06-07 / 13:25

  48. Janet Perry
    2016-06-07 / 14:54

    For me it’s the fact that my clothes are protected and preserved as opposed to the harshness that is exerted on fabrics by conventional dryers. The fact too that it’s an environmentally friendly dryer is very important to me thus making something that is normally a leech on electricity at a cost that makes conventional dryers an absolute luxury, a viable options in homes across SA today. The fact that it’s fast too is just a super-bonus! 🙂

    Oh wow this is too amazing! What I love about this concept, is that it uses less energy and its sooooo much quicker!

  52. 2016-06-08 / 07:47

    The spindel offers offers way more than dryer clothing before hanging up or tumble dry; I’mreally impressed by how delicate it promises to be. I’m all for saving energy and using less electricity and think that’s the best selling point for me 🙂 Also, HIGH FIVE for removing excess detergent and softeners! Lord knows ain’t nobody got time for residue!
