Ecoegg Laundry Egg Frequently Asked Questions

Does the ecoegg laundry egg really work? Yes!

The ecoegg laundry egg is scientifically tested and proven to work by one of the UK’s leading product test laboratories. Thousands of happy customers up and down the country (and now all around the world!) rely on the ecoegg laundry egg every day. It is proven to remove dirt and grime. It’s endorsed by lots of newspapers and magazines and even the “Queen of Clean”, Kim Woodburn!

How does the ecoegg laundry egg work?

The ecoegg laundry egg contains a number of small pellets and it is these pellets that are the secret to the ecoegg laundry egg’s cleaning power. The ecoegg laundry egg contains two types of cleaning pellets: The tourmaline ceramic pellets weaken the adhesive forces between the dirt and fabric. The mineral pellets then naturally ionize the oxygen molecules in the water which then penetrate deep into the fabric lifting away the dirt and grime, without fading colours or damaging the fibres. Independent scientific testing shows that these two types of pellets used together give the optimum cleaning results. The ionized oxygen molecules also increase the pH level of the water, which has a natural softening effect on your laundry, so you do not need to use additional fabric softener or conditioner if you don’t want to.


What about the rinse cycle?

The only reason there is a rinse cycle facility on a washing machine is to rinse away the chemicals from normal detergent. However, as the ecoegg laundry egg contains no harsh chemicals and leaves no residue, there’s no need for a rinse cycle. If you have a “rinse hold” button on your machine, just press that to skip the rinse cycle, but if not, no problem – you’ll just get an extra wash cycle instead of a rinse cycle. Easy!

How often do I need to top-up the ecoegg?

About every 72 washes you need to top-up your ecoegg with another pack of white mineral pellets. Don’t worry if you can’t keep track of 72 washes exactly; instead, just keep an eye on the pellets. When they are down to about half their original size, that’s when you need to top up – simple!
