I Bought an Ecoegg

I mentioned this product a few weeks ago on a Friday Randoms post.  Curiosity got the best of me and I started searching around for a positive price, on this product.  From the United Kingdom, the Ecoegg is an egg shaped device full of mineral pellets.  


You fill the egg with three packets of the light colored pellets and one packet of the dark pellets.  When the pellets shrink by at least half in size, you can refill with fresh pellets.  


The egg is small enough to fit into the palm of my hand and floats around in the washing machine dispersing its natural elements.  The directions state to drop the egg onto the top of the laundry in the washer.  I have a new machine, without an agitator.  It fills from the bottom and I leave the egg in the bottom of the washer, without a problem.  

It works just like regular laundry detergent.  It does not replace bleach or stain removers.  However, it cleans my clothes and they are softer than they ever have been....I don't use fabric softener.  The clothes are very clean and yes, they do smell good.  


If you are interested in this product, you can read some reviews here.  I actually bought two Ecoeggs on Ebay.  $25 for two eggs, one with a fresh linen scent and one unscented.  Each egg will do 864 loads of laundry.  

Ecoegg can give you more information on their laundry products.

  2. I've never heard of such a thing, and am now completely fascinated. Where would I be without other bloggers to lead the way? Thanks for sharing.

  3. We have one of those and another for the dryer. My wife has mixed feelings and thinks they are ok if you are trying to use them if the clothes still have some detergent left in them. She does not think they are as good as it is made out

    1. Bill, I like it for the washing machine. I don't use anything in the dryer. Thus far it is cleaning all of our grimy and smelly gym clothes.

  4. Ink, bink, something stink, say the grandkids. I'm just kidding. I am a sucker for anything new and I'm sure the manufacturers love me. And, if it helps the planet I'm there. Please let us know how it works. On a farm, I'm leery.

    1. Donna, so far no stink! lol I have washed multiple loads of farm clothes and even worse smelling gym clothes. All come out clean and smelling fresh, but nor perfumy. I use it with my work clothes and have great luck.

    2. Well, coming from a sport and farm family, it must be a winner. They should use you on an advertisement. I always think of that little ditty the kids and cousins would say, while holding their little noses. It always makes me smile to remember.

  6. Never heard of this before, it sound interesting.

  7. How interesting! I wonder how that works with no soap. I hate my washer and am patiently waiting for it to die so I can buy an old fashioned one with an agitator. That is the key to clean clothes at my house. But this egg might be worth a try if I can find it cheaper somewhere.

    1. Terri, my front load washer finally died last year and I bought a Maytag top loader without an agitator. Works incredibly well. I have had great success with the egg. Gym clothes, farm clothes, and nice work clothes all come out clean.

  8. That's sure is interesting. I like my Tide pods though.
    I also don't use fabric softener.

    1. Happyone, I have used pods, but just felt like I was spending a lot of money on detergent. At this rate each load of laundry costs me about 5 cents per load.

  10. I'm intrigued to know what the pellets are made of!

    1. Pat, the white pellets are made of "minerals" and the brown pellets are tourmaline. I have great success so far. I have completed multiple loads of smelly gym clothes, farm clothes and even my nice work clothes, with good results.

  11. Ecoegg certainly sounds like a winner . . .
    I’m tempted . . .
    How about another update in a month . . .

  13. I'll have to tell the laundry doers of the family about this. Our washing and drying machines are down in a dark and creepy root cellar so I won't go down there. :-) But I do the folding and putting away. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
