The reusable Laundry Egg – With energy prices rising and difficult decisions being made on where to cut costs. Women Talking looks at an innovative laundry aid the ecoegg Laundry Egg which means your washing isn’t an area you need to worry about.
With large families, your laundry rota can be pretty full-on and every penny count when you are trying to cut costs. The ecoegg is not only cost-effective but also less messy. My laundry cupboard contains a huge detergent box, which creates never-ending snow of power in the surrounding area, which has now been immediately eliminated with my selection of ecoeggs.
The eco-friendly, refillable ecoegg completely replaces washing detergent and conditioner, reducing single-use plastic in the home but also helping save you cash. At just £9.99 for an ecoegg Laundry Egg and £4.99 for refills, it works out at just 10p per wash when you refill and reuse.
The innovative, egg-shaped, eco-friendly ecoegg Laundry Egg is filled with mineral pellets that clean with a gentle formula for a more environmentally friendly wash. Rated ‘excellent’ for sensitive skin by Dermatest, the independent dermatology institute, the ecoegg Laundry Egg comes with a 10-year guarantee and doesn’t contain any of the following “nasties”: enzymes, chlorine bleaches, phosphates, parabens, SLS/SLES or palm oil.
“With household bills soaring, many households are making the tough decision about where to cut costs.When it comes to those piles of laundry, the ecoegg Laundry Egg is an affordable solution that also helps to reduce plastic, costing just 14p per wash and then 10p per wash when refilled and reused, users can rest assured their washing isn’t an area they need to worry about,” says Lisa Whalley-Smth, Head of Brand and Marketing, Ecoegg UK.
How it Works
The white and black mineral pellets in the egg case, work together in the water to effectively draw dirt from your clothing fibers and soften your clothes leaving your laundry clean and fresh without using chemical-laden detergents. If you switch from liquid detergent and fabric conditioner to a Laundry Egg, as well as saving money, you are also doing your bit for the environment as you can save up to 40* bottles of plastic each year. (*Based on 7 washes a week and 18 wash bottles.)
The ecoegg Laundry Egg comes in three colours, pink, with a spring blossom scent, blue scented with fresh linen and yellow which is fragrance-free and has been awarded the Allergy-Friendly product award by Allergy UK.
To keep your whites, white try the ecoegg Laundry Egg for Whites. The Laundry Egg pellets for whites contain a natural brightener which helps to keep your laundry looking brighter and whiter.
We love the idea of the Laundry Egg Cup Holder, which you will find in each box. Perfect for holding your egg case while you fill it with pellets, and great for storing your Laundry Egg between washes. This handy contraption can be secured to any hard surface. It comes with a suction pad which can be attached to either the bottom or the back of the holder.
Simply pop your Laundry Egg in the cup when not in use so that it dries between washes, and you always know where to find it.
