This post will show you how to save money on your weekly shopping by replacing your regular laundry detergent with an award-winning Ecoegg.
What is an Ecoegg?
If you haven’t heard of the *Ecoegg, it’s a rubber and plastic shaped egg (made from 100% recycled plastic and rubber of course!) and contains two types of pellets inside.
Using the Ecoegg is also an environmentally friendly and hypoallergenic way of doing your washing. Perfect for those of us who suffer from skin irritations. In fact, it is supported by Allergy UK and the National Eczema Society.
The Laundry Egg is dermatologically tested and perfect for even the most sensitive skin.
What are Ecoegg Pellets Made of?
Inside the Ecoegg there are two types of pellet; tourmaline ceramic pellets that weaken the adhesive forces between dirt and fabric, and mineral pellets which naturally ionize the oxygen molecules in the water, penetrating deep into the fabric lifting away dirt and grime without fading the colour of clothing or damaging fibres.
The ionized oxygen molecules increase the ph level of the water which has a natural softening effect on your laundry. You don’t need to use additional fabric softener or conditioner although Ecoegg do supply a range if you still prefer to use it.
The pellets produce a naturally powerful cleaning foam without any harsh chemicals that *wash your clothes just as well as normal laundry detergents.
Ecoegg Pack Sizes
The Ecoegg is available in 3 sizes and 3 fragrances being fragrance-free fresh linen and spring blossom:
54 washes will last your around 3 months
210 washes will last up to a year
720 washes last last up to 3 years
The *720 wash egg works out to just 3p per wash, that’s the average family doing around 4 to 5 washes per week. So you’re saving a huge amount over the years.
How to use the Ecoegg
Simply put the egg into the washing machine and wash as normal. It works with both front-loading and top-loading machines. It must not be used above 60 degrees Celcius.
Less Plastic Waste
Once you’ve used the egg, don’t throw it away! Refill pellets are available which allow you to continue using your egg for many years, in fact, each egg comes with a 10-year guarantee.
