Switching to the ecoegg laundry egg helps to reduce tonnes of laundry detergent that often contains harmful chemicals from polluting our water systems every year. Originally developed for sensitive skins, the ecoegg uses two types of mineral pellets (white and black) plus a small amount of detergent, encased in a recyclable egg.
The biodegradable detergent surfactants in the pellets lift dirt from the fabrics because one end of the surfactant’s molecule is attracted to water and the other end is attracted to dirt and grease. The surfactant molecules help water to take hold of the dirt and grease, break it up and wash it away. The other ingredients in the white pellets ensure that the dirt and grime in the water do not move back onto the fabrics and remain in the wash water instead.
At the same time the black tourmaline pellets naturally ionise the water making it slightly more alkaline. Alkaline water lifts dirt better, but also softens the fibres of the clothes (so no fabric conditioner is needed). Acidic water can also be damaging to clothes and fibres so it avoids that too.
The fresh linen scent is produced with natural fragrance oils.
To use simply open the egg by holding down the button and twisting until the triangles match up, fill with the mineral pellets provided in the box and place in your washing machine drum on top of your laundry.
Suitable for all washing machines, from 15°C to 60°C. Also suitable for hand washing.
This box contains laundry egg case, 3 x bags of white mineral pellets and 1 x bag of black tourmaline pellets. Mixed together in the egg they should be effective for approximately 70 washes. Refill pellet packs are available to purchase separately.
