I don’t know about you but I appear to have a magic laundry basket. As soon as I empty it I turn around and it’s full again. There are only three of us but it never ceases to amaze me how much washing we create. Sadly until I’ve got Monkey better trained, the responsibility for getting it all cleans lies with me and my trusty washing machine. It can cost a small fortune to keep everything looking pristine can’t it. Well I’ve discovered something that’s rather clever, eco-friendly and will save me money, all whilst keeping on top of the laundry. Let me introduce you to the Ecoegg Laundry Egg.
The Ecoegg Laundry Egg – Soft Cotton, we received priced at £9.99 will last for 210 washes, before the cleaning pellets will need replacing. So one wash is costing me just 0.45p. This instantly made washing far more interesting as far as Daddy P was concerned. There is a 720 washes version of the Laundry Egg available which reduces the wash cost down to 0.28p! You can also choose a Fragrance free or Spring Blossom fragrance version on the Laundry Egg.
This novel washing device consists of the Egg itself, five bags of white mineral pellets and one bag of dark coloured tourmaline ceramic pellets as well as full instructions for us.
Push the button on the side of the Egg to separate the two halves and fill the larger end with only three packets of the white pellets and the one packet of dark coloured pellets.
Place the top half of the Egg in place and match up the triangle to the locking device to click into place.
The Ecoegg Laundry Egg is now ready to complete the first 72 washing loads. Place the egg on top of your washing inside the drum and wash as normal. You can use stain removers if needed for extra stubborn stains.
The tourmaline ceramic pellets weaken the adhesive forces between the dirt and fabric. Then the mineral pellets naturally ionise the oxygen molecules in the water which then penetrate deep into the fabric lifting away the dirt and grime without fading colours or damaging the fibres.
There are no harsh chemicals to worry about and the product is hypoallergenic, making it great for babies and those with sensitive skin. The product has won awards for Best Baby Skincare Product from Prima Baby & Pregnancy Magazine and is supported by Allergy UK and the National Eczema Society.
So far I’m impressed with our Ecoegg Laundry Egg on all levels, it’s already saving me money, its super simple to use and there is no mess when putting tables, powder in the washing machine. The Egg is washing our clothes well and even Monkey’s school uniform is coming through the wash well.
When we’ve completed the first 72 washes I will need to top up the pellets with another pack of the white pellets, and again following the next 72 washes. This is my only niggle. I can barely remember what day of the week it is sometimes, let alone how many times I’ve done the washing in a given month. It would be great if there was some sort of indicator on the Laundry Egg to tell you it needed refilling. But that aside I love this product.
When I’ve completed my 210 washes in the future, I can just buy the refill pellets for £7.49 and start again. Honestly, sit down and work out how much you are spending per wash and you will be converted. You can buy directly on the Ecoegg website and fond information on national stockists.
