We use a whole barrage of chemicals in our washing and let’s face it who really knows what’s in our washing up tablets/powders etc.? You normally have a simple choice, biological or non-biological cleaning but now there is a third option ‘natural’. Like the sound of that? I sure did! It’s not just children that you have to worry about exposing to harmful chemicals. Adults are also at risk of developing skin irritations.
Many of you will have noticed by now I lean to the natural product side as often as possible and why not? In most cases natural products can yield equivalent if not better results to their non-natural (more toxic to our skin and the environment) competitors. My continuous quest led me to discover a product called Ecoegg. I was instinctively drawn to this product on seeing a video featuring Rachel Ellis:
How amazing does that sound!!!
The Ecoegg negates the need for any washing detergent and lasts for ages. It is dermatologically tested and is endorsed by both Allergy UK and the National Eczema Society (the only product supported by both of these charities).
The Ecoegg is a great money saver and also saves loads of space. I was buying big bags of washing tablets etc. but now I don’t need to yaaaaaaaayyyyy more space for my cooking utensils (trust me you can NEVER have enough). If you buy the 720 wash package the cost of your washing works out to a mere 3p per wash. That’s for an average family doing 4 to 5 washes weekly. Now we all know I like to do my research so I did a price comparison over on mysupermarket.co.uk and the lowest price per wash for washing detergent was when you purchased a bottle of Ariel from Asda and that would still set you back 12.5p per wash so over 4 times the cost of the Ecoegg price of 3p per wash. Click ‘here’ to see the comparison for yourself.
Here’s that math part; 720 washes at 12.5p each would cost £90, whereas 720 washes at 3p each would cost £21.60 giving you a massive saving of £68.40. Wasn’t that exciting, I wonder where else we can save some money!!!
How does the egg work?
For those that haven’t watched the video above it’s really quite simple. There are two type of mineral pellet that produce a foam like substance this helps to lift the dirt from the clothing fibres thus cleaning them. The egg is easy to set up, just pop it open and pour in the pellets as specified in the instructions provided. The only suggestion that I might amend here is to place the larger side of the egg into the open side of the smaller part to fill, like this:
There are two other pack options available: 52 washes and 210 washes. Personally I love the 720 was option, even storing the pellets for the rest of the washes as you don’t use them all in one go takes up less space than washing tablets so it’s a no brainer really in my eyes.
You also have an option in regards to the scent; fragrance free, soft cotton and spring blossom. I went for the latter as it sounded great and I do like a little fragrance on the clothing.
I’m loving my new laundry product, the fact that I can save money, help the environment and that my clothing comes out of the machine looking clean and smelling nice is brilliant. The fragrance is very mild so all the men out there need not worry about smelling like a vase of flowers. There are refill packs available for when your pellets eventually need replacing as well as a stain remover and detox tablets which you can use to clean your washing machine. As an added bonus the Ecoegg case is guaranteed for 10 years!!!
