Ecoegg Laundry Egg 

Image of author
Laundry is something everyone does and like most people I tend to buy one of the advertised brands here is something different that could be the answer, it starts by costing less than most, and assuming it gets things clean and without irritation then for me its well on the way to being on my shopping list.

Ecoegg Starter Kit

The first thing you will notice is that the egg once filled with the tiny balls is stated to work for 25 washes, very different from throwing in a single multi coloured package that you never see again as I assume it melts away during the wash.

If you have a wash/dry machine you are told to remove the Laundry Egg during the drying cycle, as my machine is wash only this did not apply to me so after the first use it stays in the machine now I just need to count to 25 to know when to refill the egg.

Unlike large families that may even do more than one wash a day my wash tends to be once a week and there is no separation of whites and colours its all in together.

I noticed their seemed to be less suds during the cycle of wash, rinse and spin, my machine is capable of many different modes both temperature and length but I always use the same so am able to note what my one setting generates.

During the three washes I noticed there was virtually no smell when items emerged but they appeared clean, one sweater had a 'Bovril' stain when it went in it hadn't one when it emerged and a handkerchief had blood from a slight nosebleed which also vanished, a couple of kitchen towels still had slight fat stains but after a second wash in week three these were lessened. There was a nice warm smell from items that went in the tumble dryer on a wet day.

Five 'No's' mentioned on the box Palm Oil, Chlorine Bleaches, Phosphates or Parabens, Enzymes, Sls/Sles. It also states that this non Bio ECO product is suitable for Vegans.

At the time of publication the Starter Kit that I was sent is available from Amazon for £7 which, if the 25 wash claim works out, is 28p per wash.
