What is the ecoegg Laundry Egg?
The ecoegg Laundry Egg is a unique and innovative laundry washing system that cleans clothes effectively, using two types of natural mineral pellets encased in a recyclable egg.
Containing no harmful chemicals and kind to your skin, the ecoegg Laundry Egg completely replaces laundry detergent and fabric conditioner, giving you a kinder laundry solution.
How does the ecoegg Laundry Egg work?
Firstly, we recommend cleaning your machine with an ecoegg Detox Tablet so that any residue from previously used detergents or fabric conditioners are cleaned away.
Then, simply open your Laundry Egg and fill the larger half of the egg with the two types of mineral pellets. Close your egg so that it ‘clicks’ and place it in your washing machine on top of your laundry.
The mineral pellets work together in the water to effectively draw dirt from your clothing fibres and soften your clothes by changing the pH, leaving your laundry clean and fresh without using harmful chemical laden detergents. The mineral pellets in the ecoegg Laundry Egg are perfect for people with sensitive skin, are non-biological and do not contain any petrochemicals, enzymes, bleaches, phosphates, parabens, SLS/SLES, palm oil or microplastics. You’ll need to replace your mineral pellets after approximately 2 months of use (this time frame will depend on whether you have the initial 70 wash egg or 50 wash refills, how often you put a wash on and the machine wash cycle you choose.)
What are the benefits of the ecoegg Laundry Egg?
The ecoegg Laundry Egg was originally developed for people with sensitive skin. It has been dermatologically tested on people with sensitive skin and given the result of ‘excellent.’ The natural mineral pellets contain no harmful chemicals. We are so proud to have worked with Allergy UK to hold their ‘Allergy Friendly Product’ award’ for the Laundry Egg which gives customers confidence and trust in our product.
The ecoegg Laundry Egg helps to reduce your single-use plastic use. Once you’ve used your Laundry Egg for around 70 washes, you can buy Refill Laundry Egg Pellets which allow you to use the egg over and over again.
If you switch from liquid detergent and fabric conditioner to a Laundry Egg you can save up to 40* bottles of plastic each year. (*Based on 7 washes a week and 18 wash bottles.) We are proud to have been awarded the Good Housekeeping Institute’s ‘Getting Greener’ accreditation that recognises our efforts towards sustainability and reducing plastic.
The ecoegg Laundry Egg is suitable for vegans and is cruelty-free. Made without any testing or cruelty to animals, and without any animal derivatives, the ecoegg Laundry Egg is suitable for use by vegans.
The ecoegg Laundry Egg is also suitable for handwashing. Simply place the egg to soak in water for 5-10 minutes then handwash as normal. The Laundry Egg must not be used above 60 degrees Celsius.
The ecoegg Laundry Egg is cost effective. Not only is the Laundry Egg kind to your skin, it is also kind to your pocket, costing just 14p per wash or 10p per wash when you buy the refills.
The ecoegg Laundry Egg comes with a 10 year guarantee.
