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.
