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

Tea towels
Friday, 11 October 2019  | 

I was hopeful but wary that the eco egg would live up to the bio, not only would I be doing my bit for the climate but I was also to save a fortune. I purchased three one each for each of my sons and myself. My tea towels were stained and previous wash’s with well known detergent did not lift them so I washed them using the eco egg and the stains lifted I could not believe it . My reason for washing them was for to tear them up and use them as dish cloths but they were stain free. I’ve also hand washed using it and I couldn’t be happier with the result. It’s early days but I’m getting the same feedback from my sons . Thank you so much , I am spreading the word to friends and family . One friend told me she ordered two yesterday.

Eco Egg
Tuesday, 1 October 2019  | 

Received my eco egg just over a week ago and was delighted to get started with it. It's easy to use and far less mess and bother than traditional washing powder etc.the only drawback for me and the reason I dropped one star in rating is it has to dry between washes so I can only do one wash a day. Sometimes not practical for a family of 6!
But I'm happy with how the washing turns out and glad I've made the switch. Might buy a second for use when first is drying out!!

Just a quick note to say thank you for reviewing the Eco Egg. If you are doing several washes one after another, then you do not need to dry the EcoEgg between washes. However, once you have finished washing for the day, you need to leave the Ecoegg out of the machine to dry.

Cleans nicely
Thursday, 12 September 2019  | 

With 3 kids at home under 5 it has to be effective and it is. So far perfectly cleans baby bibs, sleeping suits and school uniforms too. Next time will definitely go for the fresh linen scent if it is not out of stock. So easy to use.

Loving this!
Wednesday, 11 September 2019  | 

So far so good, everything is coming out clean and smells great. Not a super strong smell but still, I won’t be going back. I’ve ordered refills, it seems the white pellets slowly fade away, so easy to see when a refill is needed, which are cheap enough too. Very pleased to find an alternative to the poisons I was using.

Love the product. Very easy to use, washes clothes and stains ( especially the natural stains like blood, baby food and poop) very good. Didn’t wash out foundation that was on my shirt. But washing powder also didn’t!.. love the egg, no mess, no smell, cleaner and soft clothes without some residue ! 10 stars from 10!
