Eco friendly living and sustainability is a hot topic in the news at the moment and quite rightly so, as each year we experience more volatile weather and record temperatures. However, when we talk about eco friendly products, there is a lot more to it than being friendly to the planet. When it comes to fragrances, soaps ,and laundry detergents it’s also good for your body! So, it’s no surprise to me that the majority of people I meet who are interested in the Paleo diet, are also interested in being eco-friendly and organic whenever possible. When we use products on our skin which are produced using chemicals we forget that our body absorbs them too. The question is, when we are all so careful about what we put in our bodies, why aren’t we as careful about what we expose our skin to? It is our largest organ after all!
This is one of the main reasons why I love the Ecoegg Laundry. I want to be eco friendly, kind to my body and my skin, but like most people I lead a hectic life and don’t want to be paying the Earth. So when it arrived, I was delighted at process, the packaging, and the price. There are so many other brands out there on the market but I think I’m sold on what brand I want to be using from now on.
About Ecoegg Laundry
“The Ecoegg Laundry, was born out of the fact that one of Ecoegg’s co-founders, Dawn White, had very sensitive skin and couldn’t use any products that contained harsh chemicals. The realisation that Dawn’s sensitive skin seemed to be irritated by washing detergent was the real ‘light bulb’ moment. It was evident that there was a gap in the market for a product that was an alternative to chemical laden laundry products and would be great for adults and babies’ sensitive skin.” – Ecoegg website
Mission and Morals
“To produce household products that are driven by customers needs, are money saving, environmentally friendly, and free from harsh chemicals. We want to revolutionise the way people think about household products by providing innovative and effective alternatives to traditional products.” – Ecoegg website
The Ecoegg Laundry is even more special, as it was developed in conjunction with Allergy UK. It is also endorsed by the National Eczema Society as it is one of the best products for parents or individuals who want to ensure they use natural products on their or their children’s skin who mainly suffer from conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Ecoegg Laundry Review
When it comes to reviewing washing detergents, I am your perfect candidate. Every since I was little, I’ve always had sensitive skin and have suffered eczema and psoriasis on and off. I mainly control it through diet and supplements but I am a stickler for what I wash my clothes in. I will be the first person to tell you if my clothes have been washed in bio: ants in your pants, scratching all over doesn’t even come close to what happens!
So, when I was presented with the opportunity to try out the Ecoegg Laundry, I’d never been so excited to do my washing and the past 6 months after that. So, its fair to say, I’ve given the Ecoegg Laundry a good go and here is what I think.
I love it. You open the egg, you put the “beans” in and then you wash. Simple. My clothes came out fresh, super clean, and I felt even better that I wasn’t harming the planet in any way. However, I do have to confess – I live in a city centre, rented apartment and our washing machine isn’t, by any standard, new. What did this mean? Attempt one and my clothes smelled disgusting. Even my boyfriend thought I smelled. After a quick email later with the best customer service ever! I was given the best advice. Detox your machine!
Here is what Ecoegg explained to me:
“Often, in washing machines which have always had chemical cleaners going through them, they have a build-up of gunge which starts to smell. The chemical cleaners that you were used to using would have previously covered up this smell, however now you are not using them, you will start to notice the smell.”
After detoxing my machine – hooray! No smell. Certainly wasn’t the Ecoegg Laundry at all as the Ecoegg is fragrant free, it will also tell you when how your machine is feeling too. Think about it. When your toilet is left for a while without cleaning, the grime builds up and begins to smell. So why shouldn’t we be cleaning our washing machines too! I felt enlighten to say the least and will keep enjoying my super easy to use, eco friendly egg. One of the best parts is the egg hunt in the washer machine through all the clothes. Just a little bit of fun to smile about throughout the day.
If you need to detox your machine, here is the link so that you can do it yourself too!
The Ecoegg Laundry came in a super bright yellow colour “egg”, which twisted to open up the inside. The laundry “beans” were packaged separately and the instructions require you open and pour into the egg. This will last you a very long time before your next wash and there are several of these portion size laundry “bean”. Overall the packaging and instructions are clear and easy to use as well as being a brilliant bright colour. This makes it extra simple and easy to hunt down for your egg in the washer machine.
Price and Availability
54 washes for £7.99, 210 washes for £9.99, and 720 washes for £19.99 – overall this is an average of under 3p per wash and according to statistics, 720 is the equivalent of 3 year’s worth of washing for the average family! That is incredible value for money. I would highly recommend bulk buying the 720 washes Ecoegg Laundry, just because of the amount of time this product will save you. When purchasing products online, I’m usually put off with the price of the shipping, however Ecoegg have a flat rate of £2.99 which is incredible.
The Ecoegg Laundry is available from most health shops such as Holland and Barretts as well as Argos, Amazon, Ebay, and of course their own online website.
