As you maybe aware, we have been trying out different things for washing our clothes which are chemical free and economic friendly. Firstly was the soap nuts which the review for these can be found here
The ecoegg laundry egg comes in 2 fragrances and 1 fragrance free option. I have the spring blossom and my mother in law has chosen the soft cotton one. The reasoning behind trying it was cost effectiveness as well as it being chemical free. Our washing machine in our narrowboat is a 5kg one and our water from it goes directly into the river. This water is called ‘grey water’ as it is considered reletively clean water that comes from baths, showers, sinks and appliances.
With the ecoegg laundry egg, this completely replaces your detergent. The two types of mineral pellets inside the egg get to work, producing powerful – but natural – cleaning foam which powers through the fibres lifting off the dirt and grime. They also naturally raise the PH levels of the water which softens your clothes.
We bought the 720 eco laundry egg which is to last 3 years, which works out roughly at 3p per wash. We found that the clothes were lovely and clean, soft to touch. Supported by Allergy UK and the National Eczema Society, the Laundry Egg is dermatologically tested and perfect for even the most sensitive skin.
I suffer with eczema and have found since using this, my skin has been so much better! Less itchy, less dry patches and much happier!
My mother in law is loving hers too! She was finding that conventional laundry liquids were building up and caused drainage issues. Since using the ecoegg, this isn’t a problem anymore and she is thrilled with the results too!
So don’t be afraid to give them a try. At £19.99 for 3 years this is an absolute bargain and will make you feel good inside knowing that you are helping the environment too!
