Eco Laundry Egg - natural detergent breakthrough

Our Summary: the Ecoegg is a fantastic addition to your laundry routine. It will clean clothes just as well as traditional detergents but without the impact on the environment from detergent waste passing into the drains and waterways. It works best when you don't have a very full load so that the laundry gets a chance to move around. It also works better in soft water areas, you may need a second if you have very hard water. Finally it is a gentle cleaner so may not lift all stains so we recommend you also use a little eco stain remover in the wash if you have stains to remove. Keep the pellets topped up regularly and you can buy refills from us whenever you run low so your egg will last for years as a fantastic sustainable low waste low impact option. 

Containing no harsh chemicals, and kind to the environment and your skin, the Ecoegg Laundry Egg completely replaces laundry detergent and fabric conditioner. The Ecoegg is packed with unique, natural and powerful cleaning pellets which activate in the water and are scientifically proven to gently lift away dirt and grime. And if that wasn’t enough, it completely replaces washing powders, liquids, gels and tablets. No mess, no fuss, less money!

Inside the recyclable plastic egg shell are natural, biodegradable cleaning pellets. These mineral pellets weaken the adhesive forces between dirt and fabric and then ionise the oxygen molecules in the water to drive them deeply into your clothes, lifting away grime without fading colours or damaging the fibres. The mineral pellets are non-biological and do not contain any petrochemicals, enzymes, bleaches, phosphates, parabens, SLS/SLES, palm oil or microplastics. They also increase the pH level of the water, which has a natural softening effect, so there’s no need to add fabric conditioner either. 

How To Use Your Eco Egg:

Wash up to 60°C and is even better on cooler washes to save energy!

No measuring, scooping or pouring!

Safe for use with fabric softener or  a few drops of essential oil

Suitable for white and coloured clothes – no bleaches

Safe for all fabrics – even delicates

Using the Laundry Egg is easy: Just simply place it into drum of your washing machine along with your laundry – no other liquids or powders are required.

Temperature - The Laundry Egg will work at temperatures up to 60 degrees Celsius. However it is just as effective at 30 or 40 degrees, if desired.

The Laundry Egg also does not leave any residue as with powdered detergent, therefore there is no need for a rinse cycle. This can save you time, energy and even more money with every wash.

The ecoegg Laundry Egg is suitable for handwashing. Simply place the egg to soak in water for 5-10 minutes then handwash as normal. 

Softener - The Ecoegg will naturally soften fibres even in hard water, so no fabric softener is required. However we know that some of you love your clothes extra soft, therefore fabric softener can be used in conjunction with your Laundry Egg if desired.

How Does It Work?: 

The Laundry Egg contains scientifically formulated, patented cleaning pellets and it is these pellets that are the secret to the Laundry Egg’s amazing cleaning power. The egg contains two types of cleaning pellets:

Dark coloured tourmaline ceramic pellets – these weaken the adhesive forces between the dirt and fabric

White mineral pellets - these naturally ionize 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.

Scientific testing shows that these two types of pellets used together give the best cleaning results. The ionized oxygen molecules also increase the pH level of the water, which has a natural softening effect on your laundry, so you do not need to use additional fabric softener or conditioner.

Benefits for you and your family:

  • Saves you so much money – from just 2c per wash, you'll never buy washing detergent ever again
  • Hypoallergenic – great for sensitive skin - the whole range of Eco Egg products have the Allergy UK stamp of approval. Leaves significantly less residue on clothing
  • Eco-friendly – great for the environment, no harsh chemicals, far less pollution, refillable pellets
  • 10 year guarantee on egg case
  • Suitable for Vegans


Does the Eco Egg contain harsh chemicals?

No, none of the products in the range contain any harsh chemicals, petrochemicals, optomisers, bleaches or amonias that normal detergents often contain. 

How Long Will the Eco Egg Last?

Approximately 720 washes, which is about 3 years worth of washing for the average family (based on 4 or 5 washes per week). Note: The number of washes that the Laundry Egg will last for depends on many factors including the hardness of your water, the load size and the length of the cycle. 720 washes is an approximation for guidance only.

Is the Eco Egg Safe to Use with Sensitive Skin including Babies Skin?

Yes absolutely, as there are no harsh chemicals involved. All our products have been assessed and approved by Allergy UK, the leading medical charity for sufferers of allergy, sensitivity and intolerance. What’s more, the National Eczema Society are also happy to put their name to our Fragrance Free Laundry Egg.

If you are using the laundry egg in a dual washer/dryer machine, it is important that the laundry egg is not allowed to go through a tumble dry cycle, therefore the laundry egg would need to be removed before the drying cycle. If using the ecoegg dryer eggs they would be added at the beginning of the drying cycle.

You don't need to dry your ecoegg between washes but once you've finished washing for the day, leave your egg out of the washing machine to dry.

Available in 70, 210 or 720 washes, Fragrance Free, Soft Cotton or Spring Blossom

Ecoegg - Great for washing and the environment
Wednesday, 16 December 2020  | 

I have been using the ecoegg Spring Blossom system for the past year. Whilst the fragrance is very subtle the mineral pellets wash the clothes very well. I still use a pre stain remover on certain stains as I would have with my previous washing product. There's no need for a fabric softener as the clothes come out beautifully soft too.

One piece of advice, no matter what the size you order for refills: 50, 70 or 210, the size of the egg is the same.

I recently purchased 2 eco eggs as I have a large capacity washing machine. I have been using them without fabric softener and the clothes are thoroughly washed. The clothes include sports gear, towels, clothes etc. Very happy with the purchase

Our laundry has never been easier to do, and is perfectly clean everytime. I was skeptical at first whether it would be enough to cope with the grubby clothes that come with having a large family and lots of little kids, but I’ve not had a single issue

I got this egg as a gift and love it. I was worried maybe that it would leave clothes a little unfragrant compared to traditional washing powder but it leaves them smelling great and with the added benefit of no horrible chemicals. Maybe don't overload the machine when using it though. I bought one for my sister since too. Can't recommend it enough.

Love this so much! I hate the smell of detergent and softener, and this has no chemical smell at all. The first load I did was muddy rugby clothes and they came out actually squeaky clean. It does a great job. I had to use stain remover on some jeans with shoe polish on them (don't ask, I have no idea) but other than that, it's just been the egg for everything!
