The EcoEgg, a Sustainable Eco-Friendly Alternative to Traditional Laundry Products
What is EcoEgg?
The laundry egg is an innovative and unique laundry washing system that uses two types of mineral pellets (white and grey), encased in a recyclable egg, to thoroughly clean clothes.
White mineral pellets: Made up of biodegradable surfactants, stabilizers, builders, and binders. It's these pellets that do most of the actual cleaning.
Grey mineral pellets (tourmaline): Help to soften the laundry. The grey tourmaline pellets naturally ionise the water.
Together, the pellets work to clean your laundry for optimum results. In addition, the physical mechanics of the egg case are also a factor that aids in removing dirt from clothes, much like a traditional soap (or even a stone) would.
What are the benefits of using an eco egg?
The Eco Laundry Egg helps reduce plastic waste. Once you’ve used your Laundry Egg for around 70 washes, you can buy a Refill Laundry Egg Pellets which allow you to use the egg over and over again.
This egg is hypoallergenic and contains no harmful chemicals, ideal for people with sensitive skin.
Petrochemical-based surfactants used in traditional laundry detergents to break up dirt and stains will not biodegrade unless oxygen is present. Most detergents also contain phosphates, which when released into waterways can lead to algal blooms that stifle fish and other aquatic life.
The Eco Egg is suitable for vegans and is cruelty-free.

How to Use the EcoEgg
Open your Laundry Egg and fill the larger half of the egg with the two types of mineral pellets. Close your egg until it ‘clicks’.
To to get the best results from your EcoEgg we recommend you use an EcoEgg Washing Machine detox tablet to remove any built up residue from laundry conventional liquids and powders.
Hand Wash: Place the egg to soak in water for 5-10 minutes then hand wash as normal.
Washing Machine: Place it in your washing machine on top of your laundry.
Suitable for water temperatures 15° – 60°C.
Always follow instructions on the garment label.
Treat stains prior to washing.
When to change the pellets
It is recommended to change the pellets when:
- the white pellets are half the size they were initially.
- the pellets fall beneath the white line on the larger half of the egg.
In conclusion, the EcoEgg is highly recommended for lightly soiled laundry. Heavily soiled clothing should be treated with a stain remover first.
The EcoEgg is kind to your pocket, kind to the planet.
