1

How much extra moisture will be removed?

This depends on your washing machine’s spin speed, as well as the type and thickness of the fabric. Generally, top loaders have spin speeds of 600–800rpm and most front loaders range from 800–1200rpm. The below table is a rough guide only.

How will this affect my drying times?

Certain thinner and synthetic fabrics can be ironed immediately, while thicker fabrics will air dry in a fraction of the time. Spindel can also be used to reduce your tumble dryer’s cycle time and energy consumption by up to 70%.

3

How much energy does Spindel consume?

Spindel consumes less than 1% of the energy consumed by an average tumble dryer cycle. In fact, the energy consumed by a 3 minute cycle in the Spindel is comparable to using a 60 Watt light bulb for just 15 minutes.

What fabrics can be loaded into the Spindel?

Spindel is safe for all fabrics – even delicate fabrics such as silk and wool that are usually hand-washed.

FAQs

No, the majority of the moisture will be removed, but the fabrics will still be slightly damp. This will allow you to air dry your laundry in a fraction of the time and avoid additional wrinkling. The level of dampness will depend on the type and thickness of the fabric. For example, certain fabrics will be ready to iron immediately if necessary (i.e. synthetic fibres), whilst others may require some air drying (i.e. cotton).
Its spin action ensures that fabrics do not tumble around the drum, so there is no stretching, pulling or knotting of garments. There is also no heat applied to the fabrics.  This is why Spindel is ideal for those hand-washed delicates such as silk or woollen jerseys.
You can run over 65 cycles in the Spindel with just one unit of electricity (i.e. 1 kWh), whereas one tumble dryer cycle alone can consume over 3 units of electricity!
Yes! Spindel uses minimal energy to remove the majority of moisture from your laundry in just 3 minutes. This can
reduce your tumble dryer cycle by as much as 70% – saving time and money, whilst also lowering your impact on the environment. In addition, a shorter tumble drying cycle will reduce heat damage to your fabrics.
This depends on a variety of factors such as the ambient temperature, humidity and the type and thickness of the
fabrics. Generally, most fabrics can be air dried indoors overnight.
The moisture that is extracted will flow through the spout. You can place any suitable receptacle under the spout
(i.e. a tub or bowl) or even position the spout over a floor drain.
Spindel is very compact and light enough to be moved around the house, packed away after use or even taken on
a camping trip!
No, just enough moisture is left in the fabrics to dry without most of the wrinkles, as long as the garments are
hung up neatly straight after the cycle. Certain fabrics are obviously more prone to wrinkling than others, but
Spindel will not cause more wrinkling than a standard washing machine cycle.
