Winter is here, and while the rain in the Cape is most welcome, the struggle to get laundry dry is certainly not! It’s either the horrifying electricity bill at the end of the month from the tumble dryer, or that awful musty damp smell after days of waiting for laundry to dry indoors!

The Spindel laundry dryer has double the spin power of most washing machines, leaving fabrics almost dry in just 3 minutes. And it uses less than 1% of the energy required for a standard tumble dryer, saving you time and money. Plus, it’s safe for all delicate fabrics – yes, even your woollen jerseys!
5 laundry speed hacks to make doing washing a breeze
1. Organise and prioritise
Prioritise the laundry baskets. Have a basket for essential items like school uniforms, sports gear and work outfits. Explain to the family and domestic worker that these get washed and dried first when the weather turns.
2. Choose a shorter cycle
Unless clothes are visibly grubby, choose a shorter wash cycle on the washing machine.
3. Make sure the machine is filled properly
Add a few socks, underwear and light weight items to fill the machine up and save time in the long run.

4. Pull into shape and use a coat hanger
All clothing should be pulled into shape before hanging out to dry. For work items, pull into shape, place on a coat hanger and then hang this on the clothes-horse to save ironing, which is the most time consuming task of all.
5. Get a Spindel
A Spindel is best time-saving solution for laundry and is a lifesaver during winter. It uses rapid spin power instead of heat to remove up to 80% of the leftover moisture from garments in just 3 minutes. So laundry dries much, much faster – even inside on a rainy day. Spindel is also safe for all fabrics, even winter woollens, and by removing excess moisture from the clothes and especially towels, laundry dries thoroughly without that awful, lingering damp smell.
The Spindel is light and compact enough to pack away after use. Available from home stores such as Hirsch’s, Tafelberg Furnishers, Wakefords, or shop online at Takealot.
