Eco-friendly Home: The Spindel laundry dryer review

by | Jul 10, 2019 | Eco-Friendly Living, Things we love | 156 comments

When I’m not putting in a load… I’m waiting for the washing to dry, so that I can find a spot of sun on the line. Add cloth diapers, a toddler fashionista with at least 3 outfit changes a day and a Grade 1 that is always running low on clean school clothes and I’m telling you, laundry day seems to NEVER end! So, of course I could not turn down the opportunity to test and the review the Spindel laundry dryer.

Beso-ecofriendly-kitchen-appliances

What is the Spindel Laundry Dryer?

Just the niftiest, little “green” laundry appliance we’ve come across and a dryer we don’t mind using. With it’s high speed spinning, the Spindel basically spins the excess moisture (which can be collected in a bowl and used elsewhere) and detergent from our washing. In only 3 minutes items are 80% dryer, needing only a quick turn on the washing line.

Best of all; NO HEAT is applied making the Spindel safe to use on ALL fabrics. Delicates, knits, all cloth nappies and more… No shrinking, no burning, no damage to elastic bits.

Technical features of the Spindel laundry dryer:

  • Size: 64cm high x 38,5cm wide – it’s a tiny fellow compared to conventional dryers.
  • Available in a 4,5kg and 6,5kg capacity
  • 300 watts power consumption – The energy use of a typical dryer varies between 1800 and 5000 watts!
  • 2800 rpm spin cycle – My head’s still spinning!
  • Termo-protection keeps everyone safe, with the power automatically switching off if the motor overheats or if mom forgets to switch it off. (No worries, after 20 minutes you’ll be spinning again).
  • An ACS locking systems ensures that the lid stays shut whilst the inner drum is in motion and the dryer will not start spinning if the lid is open.
  • The Spindel also comes with a 12 month warranty that’s valid from the date of purchase.

Price and where to buy:

R 1999 (4,5kg) OR R2599 (6,5kg) available at Takealot.com, Yuppiechef and Faithful to Nature.

How to use the Spindel Laundry Dryer

  1. Load garments straight from the washing machine into the Spindel.
  2. Be sure to start with smaller, delicate items at the bottom, followed by larger, heavier items on top.
  3. As you load, keep pushing clothes down ensuring a compact, even distribution inside the drum.
  4. Fill the Spindel 3/4 full.
  5. Place a bowl or measuring cup under the water collection spout. (We’ve collected between 400 – 850ml of water during various drying cycles.)
  6. Now just turn on the switch and let Spindel “work” for 2 – 4 minutes while you enjoy a cup of tea (or put in the next load.)
  7. Once the drying cycle is complete your clothes will be almost dry, needing only a touch of sunshine / air.

* The Spindel does not have a timer. Drying time is dependant on the fabric type. You will know the Spindel is done when water stops flowing and dripping from the spout. NEVER let the Spindel run for longer than 5 minutes.

So, what did we think of the Spindel laundry dryer:

Over the past few weeks our Spindel has been a lifesaver on more than one occasion.

– Ava wears bamboo cloth diapers. These can take an entire day to dry but after introducing the Spindel we now have dry nappies within only a few hours!

– Remembering last minute, next day school outfits ain’t a problem either… After 3 minutes in the Spindel I can hang clothes indoors, overnight. Come sunrise and it’s completely dry.

The Spindel is:
  • Compact and easy to store anywhere.
  • A massive timesaver giving me time to get more important things done.
  • Eco-friendly, using FAR less power than other dryers and also collecting water that can be used in the garden.
  • Great for sensitive skin, removing all excess detergents.
  • A huge money-saver.

AND DEFINITELY A MUST FOR BIG FAMILIES!

Giveaway Closed: Congratulations to Lené Greyling (Instagram entry) Time for one lucky reader to try a Spindel laundry dryer for themselves!

We all deserve a little less time spent in the laundry room… And the Spindel is just the appliance to help you out! WIN your own 6,5kg Spindel.

      I would love a spindle for my 1 and 3 year old’s clothing. It is important to me that they can be kids and play and vecome messy at anytime and thus means changing outfits 3-4 times a day. It is extremely difficult to dry the clothes in winter and I do not wish to use a tumbledryer forthe delicate fabrics. It will also allow me more playtime with my boy and girl and taking part in getting dirty and making memories.

      I need a spindel because I have been struggling with my washing in winter since the birth of my eldest! Who is now 4. We have often contemplated a tumble drier, but it would be too costly for us as it uses a crazy amount of electricity. I’ve only heard of spindel recently and all the reviews have me pining for one too! I currently move my washing around outside to wherever the sun is… Hoping it dries before sunset. So my fingers and toes are crossed for this competition! ???

      I would love to win a Spindel for my mom. I have my own Spindel and it has been the biggest lifesaver with a toddler living in Cape Town where our clothes take forever to dry. Not anymore. This was the best investment! I would LOVE to be able to gift my mom a Spindel as she lives on a farm where the weather in winter is worst than Cape Town and her laundry takes so long to dry. As you can imagine there is a constant pile of muddy, dirty clothes she needs to deal with. Plus it’s her birthday coming up in July so this would be a great birthday surprise. Fingers crossed for my mamma bear.

    Just moved to Durbs and summer is wet here! Would love this to save some time- just making it easier to be with my hubby and little boy. Plus I am determined in cloth nappies with next baby, so it would help that much more!

    I hate struggling with laundry that does not dry properly especially in winter. I think the Spindel dryer is exactly the thing I need to keep me sane during these wet winter days ?

    I would really really love and appreciate a Spindel. We are switching the household over to green-living and this will add to us saving the planet. It will also give me so much more time with my husband and little girl. Moms spend so much time on household chores, and time flies by. Our babies are only small once.

      Being in the military wearing uniform every day makes it difficult in winter to keep up with clean uniform. The action working dress material takes ages to dry, sometimes have to iron it dry after a day or 2 of hanging it inside the house. This spindel will make life so much easier for us. Looks like a great product, small and gets the job done quickly.

    I would really love to win a Spindel. It would help so much. We have a little one and she wears so many outfits a day. This spindel would help me save money and water in the long run. It would aso be amazing for when we go camping. Since the first time I heard about spindel I’ve been dreaming about owning one. Fingers crossed

    Halo 🙂 I am trying to change our lifestyle & be more aware of our environment. Winning the spindel would be a great next step. My kids are at that age where they wear 3 outfits a day (playing outside in the mud, messy food fun etc) So the spindel would really help a lot with the washing load that needs to dry. I don’t have a big outside line to hold the wet clothes so that is another reason.

    Living in the Free State is great for raising a family, but on the cold days it is a real struggle to get clothes dry relying on the sun. By winning the spindle, planning what to wear when will be so much easier and with two little ones, the spindle will make life so much easier!!

    What a great giveaway! I would love to win this! I always feel so guilty using the tumble dryer- it’s an old model and a real electricity guzzler. Not to mention the fact that it’s not good for the longevity of our clothing. The Spindel looks like a great eco-friendly solution and definitely something that we could use in our home. I love how compact it is too! And with four kids it would really help me get on top of my washing! I feel like I’m drowning in laundry! ?

    I am trying to change our home and family to go as green as possible!!! We do not use any more plastic bags when going shopping. Also made my own all purpose cleaner with oranges, vinegar and water… Saw it on your blog of course! Would love to have a Spindel as our tumble drier had its days and we are not replacing it! Love your Instagram and Facebook posts. You are an inspiration…

    I honestly need a spindel!
    1) I love the fact that the grey water doesn’t just go down the drain, but that you can recycle it.
    2) Living in a little two bedroom apartment, the spindel’s size is absolutely a dream!
    3) The spindel will cut out the following hiccups with daily living – due to safety reason in the complex we cannot hang clothes outside, resulting in clothes either being damaged and shrunken by the tumble dryer or taking up so much space on the foldable drying rack and making such a mess with dripping water.
    4) The little bit of sound it makes actually sounds so soothing and will definitely work as white noise in the house.
    5) It’s absolutely easy to use!
    6) The fact that it automatically switches off the motor when reaching a certain temperature is such a comfort, and it makes it is absolutely safe to use in any home environment.

    I’m sure having one will make this list even longer!!!!

    A Spindel will be such a blessing as I am really struggling to get my washing dry in winter. My washing hang the whole day outside to get dry . People burn grass which gives my washing a unpleasant smell but I have no choice but to leave it to dry. It’s so frustrating
    I need a Spindel it will make my life so much easier and best of all no heat is applied and it’s safe for all fabrics. A Spindel will be my lifesaver

    I need a spindel because i’ve been struggling with my washing since the birth of my son who is now 9 months olds. My washing machine broke just before he was born so I have been doing washing at my mom’s place every week and she barely has enough washing lines for her own washing too and it’s winter so my washing would hang almost 24 hours on the line but after that still feels damp. Baby washing the same too usually when i take it off it’s still damp then my mom is having to hang the same washing on the lines the following morning. Winning this spindel would mean so much not just to me but my mother too.

    I’d love to win a spindel to make an everyday (sometimes two or three times a day) chore a whole lots easier.

Reducing drying time while being eco friendly and being able to use the excess water in the garden will make life a whole happier ?

    I absolutely have to win this Spindel… As a mother of 3(11years, 5 years and 2years) and a household of 6, my mum staying with me, we have loads of laundry every week. To top it all this winter seems to be extra in the gloom, so nit enough sunshine to dry all the loads, leading to clothing often being ironed dry so that the house doesn’t look like a clothing bazaar. Please choose me as your winner, if only to stop the clothing bazaar from taking over every room in my house.

    I thoroughly enjoy doing my laundry and I’m probably one of very little females who does but with the spindel it would with no doubt make laundry much easier and more fun not only for me but for my 2 year old who enjoys pressing on buttons whether it be the washing machine or dishwasher. I’ll teach him how to use it and have him help me as he is always willing to help. Not only is it a major NEED with having a 2 year old and a 4 week old, both boys, but also because of our lovely but moody wet weather in Cape Town.
    All our fingers crossed ??

    I need and would truly love a Spindel because I work everyday of the week and on weekends from 8am – 9pm. I don’t have a washing machine cause I can’t afford one as yet so you can imagine what time I do/finish my laundry and after how long it dries up. So winning a Spindel would truly mean a lot to me and it would make a huge difference in my life.

    I’m sure everyone ahs a reason why they would live a Spindel! My reason is that I live on a dairy farm in Creighton, KZN. I live VERY close to the Berg and so it is always icy cold and to have to go hang my washing up to dry…. Chances are I will come back to my washing with frost on and then have to rewash it. With a spindel, I could dry it lot easier as the clothes wouldn’t have to be outside for that long!

    I would love a spindle dryer in my life, my clothes are still damp on the clothes horse from a week ago! This is my life in winter here in the cape, can’t hang it outside as I am not home during the day and don’t want to risk people doing online shopping from my washing line while I am at work. Hubby is in construction and the dirty clothes comes in quicker than I can keep up with, my trusted hair dryer is on call every morning to get the clothes dry enough to wear. SOS help a lady out here please.
