Ecoegg Laundry Egg Review

The Ecoegg Laundry Egg is a non-toxic, environmentally friendly ‘laundry egg’. It’s remarkable, really! Highly innovative, award winning, too. It’s an alternative to detergent and it’s been dermatologically tested and endorsed by Allergy UK and the National Eczema Society. And in one word, it ROCKS! And I thought, heck, why not…let’s have a free giveaway of 3 Ecoegg Laundry Eggs, so you get a chance to experience them, too! So, here is my honest Ecoegg review…

Ecoegg Laundry Egg Review

Rating: 5* Works amazingly well. Seriously.

Non-Toxic: Yes​

Hyper-Allergenic:  Yes

Ecologically Friendly:  Yes​

Tested on Animals: No

Endorsed: Yes! By Allergy UK, National Eczema Society (UK)

Bubbles: Loads of the ‘bubble factor’ 🙂 (Gotta have the bubbles!)

Scents: Available in Unscented, Fresh Linen, Spring Blossom & Fresh Lavender (all with no harsh chemicals!) – I bought Fresh Linen and it is light, fresh and not overpowering or ‘chemically’ smelling.

Size Options: You can buy an Ecoegg Laundry Egg with enough pellets for 54, 210 or 720 washes

Heck, this ingenious little egg won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2016! And it’s made in the UK! (And available at a very reasonable price in the US and Canada, too…).

Cost: All costs listed are for the 720 wash Ecoegg Laundry Egg (3 year’s worth of washing for the average sized family) and priced on March 11th 2017 and are subject to change on Amazon and may differ from on here.

UK cost is £18.97 (including shipping) from Amazon.co.uk which works out to 3p a wash (!)

USA cost is $23.97 (including shipping) from Amazon.com

Canadian cost is $35.35 (including shipping) from Amazon.ca​

What’s In The Box?​

Each Ecoegg comes with:

  • 1 x Ecoegg Laundry Egg
  • 1 x Packet of Tourmaline Pellets
  • 12 x Packets of Mineral Pellets
  • 1 x Instructions

Do You Do Laundry?​

Yep, I thought so…​

Let’s face it. Laundry is an everyday part of life. And not only can it be a chore, it can be messy in itself… (detergent everywhere, including clogging up your machine).

As well, it is costly…and it is toxic, if you are using normal laundry detergents (including non-bio). And if using organic, all-natural products, they can really be rather expensive! But investing in something that costs up to £20 upfront is an investment for sure…and you want to know if something works first, before laying out that kind of dosh.

So, I felt it was important to write an Ecoegg Laundry Egg review to share my experience with you! 🙂

Mission to Reduce Our Toxic Load​

As I am on a mission to reduce our toxic load in our lives and to improve our health and well-being, I have been making changes to the products we use. I am also on a mission to educate every person I come into contact with about toxicity – and what you can do about it! 🙂 

TAKE THE QUIZ To Find out How Toxic You Are!

So when I came across the Ecoegg Laundry Egg for laundry, I got excited (I know…sad but true!), because I knew that it was going to be so much easier (and actually cheaper) for me to use this, rather than to make my own. (And probably even better…so scroll down for the results!).

More About this Wondrous Ecoegg Laundry Egg

Where to begin with my Ecoegg Laundry Egg review?!

It’s hypoallergenic (and endorsed by Allergy UK), not tested on animals and dermalogically tested. It’s also been endorsed by the National Eczema Society.

 To start with, there’s no fuss and no muss with the Ecoegg Laundry Egg! You simply add the pellets into your lovely new egg, which takes literally 2 minutes and refill the egg after 720 washes (or 54 or 210 depending on the size you bought).

All you do is pop the egg on the top of your washing in your machine and turn it on. It works fab on low temperatures, too and up to 60C. That’s it!

The Ecoegg Laundry Egg completely replaces washing powders, tablets, gels and liquids.

PS. The actual egg ‘shell’ I believe is the same size no matter what wash size you buy – you just get more pellets to top it up with.

It’s All in the Pellets!​

This little egg is packed full of natural, powerful and unique cleaning pellets. That are scientifically proven to gently lift away grime and dirt through a cleaning foam – without any harmful or harsh chemicals – naturally.

There’s no bleach in the Ecoegg Laundry Egg and it can be used on delicate items and even by hand washing, too.

What About Fabric Softener?​

The Ecoegg Laundry Egg can be used with fabric softener, if required –but to be honest, I thought I would give it a test run without any fabric softener…and wowee!  There’s definitely no need to add any, our clothes came out so lovely and soft.  (In saying that, our water is also soft, so there might be a difference for peeps with hard water…just sayin’…).

​And if you would like to add softener, Ecoegg makes their own fabric softener… some that actually match the scent of their Ecoegg. (It used to drive me barmy that I would have one scent for my laundry detergent – but no matching scent for the fabric softener or dryer sheets…Speaking of which, you can also get Ecoegg Dryer Eggs with the matching scent to reduce static and increase the softness!).

Added Bonus!​

The Ecoegg Laundry Egg is great for kids and for people who are clumsy (like me) and tend to spill detergent all over the place!

Up to 3 Years of Clean, Cheap, Non-Toxic Laundry?!

Yep. The 720 Wash Laundry Egg lasts the average family of four up to 3 years. Imagine the savings in that! (Not to mention not covering your family in toxic chemicals from your current washing detergents!).

After your 720 washes are up, you can get refill pellets – so no need to replace the egg itself! (And the refills are reasonably priced, too…).

To me, this is just a ‘no-brainer’ with a rather small investment price for huge immediate benefits!

The Ecoegg Laundry Egg Test

Well, I have to admit, I don’t have a mucky family and our place is relatively clean, but I decided the best thing I could do to test out my new Fresh Linen Ecoegg Laundry Egg was ‘the white sock test’.

Unfortunately (or fortunately), our garage floor, where I decided to drag my white (and pretty pink flower) socked feet around to get them dirty, was cleaned recently, so I could only get a bit of dirt on the socks…How funny is that?! I needed some dirt!!! (But I wasn’t prepared to completely wreck my lovely white socks by stomping in the mud…sorry).

In saying this, there are over 700 amazing Ecoegg Laundry Egg reviews on Amazon about a lot more muckier clothes than mine and how well the Ecoegg works!

Some Reviews From Amazon Customers

5* ‘very impressed!’ Nicole C. 5 July 2015

  • Size: 210 washes
  • ​Scent: Fresh Linen
  • Verified Purchase​

I have two preschool aged boys so needless to say we go through a LOT of detergent. Decided to try the Ecoegg laundry egg as it seemed like an easy way to do something green and the reviews looked good. I was pleasantly surprised by the fresh, light fragrance it gave the clothes and as for stain removal I think the photo speaks for itself! Toddler soiled vest with blackberry juice, washable pens, and general playground dirt that had been set aside for about 4 days because let’s face it laundry isn’t the ideal summer’s day activity. Too lazy to pre-treat, it came out fabulously on a 40 degree quick wash wit just the egg and a teeny bit of fabric softener. Very pleased and glad I went for it. Will also be super easy for my boys to use when they’re old enough to start doing their own washing!

5* ‘Can’t believe how good this is!’ Daisy 17 June 2013

  • Size: 720 washes
  • ​Scent: Fresh Linen
  • Verified Purchase​

Washes perfectly every time. Stain remover only needed for very heavily stained clothes. saving a fortune on washing powder and softener.

My Ecoegg Laundry Egg Review Conclusion

I think that says it all! Just in case the picture doesn’t show it…my socks were sparkling clean…! And my clothes smelled fresh and clean, without an overpowering chemical ‘freshness’ as per my previous detergent.

Highly recommended!​

Addendum:  I wrote this review almost a year and a half ago, and the Ecoegg is still going strong!  I have only had to replace the pellets once, and I have saved hundreds of pounds!  Not to mention knowing that we are not sleeping on or are wearing chemicals from toxic detergent.

    Well, I’ve just found out about the Eco Egg today and have spent 45 minutes reading about it (avoiding writing report cards). Reviews vary wildly. What do I believe? I love the concept, want to try it but can’t take the chance of spending $40+ if it won’t work in with our HARD calcium rich Calgary water. What do you think?

      Hi there,

      I think the thing is that ultimately, you won’t know until you try. The EcoEgg was developed in the UK and the water here is VERY hard, like we are talking limescale that breaks washing machines and dishwashers constantly and floats on top of your water, hard.

      If you are dealing with things like really, really dirty, stained clothes, I haven’t had the opportunity to test the egg out on that. However, even if it is just for washing things like your bedding, to reduce the amount of toxicity exposure, then that can only be a good thing, right?

      I use vinegar as the softener. My linen comes out smelling clean and it is beautifully crisp and white.

      If purchased through the links in the article, then there generally are no qualms about returns if dissatisfied.

      Alyssa
