Spin Dryer takes the wet out


Clothes dryers are a huge power drain; it takes a lot of energy to fling around heavy wet stuff and heat it to a toasty glow. However, if you first put your clothes through the Spin Dryer, it removes the majority of the water in only a couple of minutes, meaning you can either air dry or toss them in the conventional dryer for about a quarter the usual time. Costing only $130 USD and running on standard mains power, it's sure to pay for itself pretty quickly if you're using anything other than a laundry line (and even then it might, since your clothes will be treated more gently and therefore last longer). Then throw in the dryer balls Sarah reviewed in November and your laundry may travel back in time from being dried so fast. [GT]

I've bought things from that company before, the hand washer, and reviewed it on my blog. Wonderful little gadget, that, and nearly forgot about the spin dryer. I should pick that up, the line doesn't do it anymore, not in this weather.

surely if your washing machine is half decent it will finish its cycle with a good spin anyway?

Actually the spin dryer will remove a lot more water from the clothes, even if you have a half decent washing machine, as the spin speed is over 6 times faster. This is very easy to verify, just take the clothes out of the washer after the spin cycle, put them in the spin dryer and run a cycle. A lot of people question this, but it is an indisputable fact.
