6 Care tips for delicate fabrics
A Spindel laundry dryer uses spinning instead of heat to remove moisture from your laundry — great for delicates!
- Use your Spindel to remove most of the moisture that’s left behind after your washing machine’s spin cycle — leaving fabrics with just enough moisture to air dry on the hanger without wrinkles. Some thinner fabrics can even be ironed straight away if necessary.
- Unlike a tumble dryer, a Spindel won’t damage even the most delicate fabrics. So now you can wash your clothes in the evening and have them dry and ready to wear the next day!
- The Spindel is also safe to use on woollen jerseys. In fact, it’s ideal! You can even hang your jersey upright after the Spindel cycle, as most of the weight of the residual moisture is removed.
- What if the label says ‘no tumble drying’ or ‘hand wash only’? — The Spindel is completely safe for all these types of garments! Spindel does not apply any heat to the fabrics, so there’s no chance of shrinking. The spin action is also much gentler than your washing machine. This is because the items are packed tightly into the drum, which means no tumbling, pulling or stretching of those delicate fabrics.
- The Spindel also extracts residual detergent and mineral deposits that usually dry into fabrics — leaving your laundry cleaner and softer, while also protecting your family’s skin fromskin irritations and allergies.
- The Spindel also uses 100 times less electricity than tumble drying. In fact, with one unit of electricity you can do 65 wash loads in the Spindel — so no worrying about the electricity bill at the end of the month!
