Best thing since sliced bread...
I was given the eco egg for whites and coloured, and wasn’t convinced it would work.. well let me tell you my clothes come out clean, even my gardening or renovation gear. I love the idea of no harsh chemicals as we are on septic system it is perfect for this. Laundry detergents are off my shopping list.

As I have sensitive skin and sinus allergies, products like this are ideal for me. I also add vinegar and bicarbonate soda to my washing, both natural products. For those of you worried about the smell from the pellets, you can add eucalyptus oil, as I do with my bedsheets, or some other fragrance. For stubborn stains, nonchemical stain removers are also available.
Love this product!
I don’t understand the negative reviews. To the reviewer who said this is a scam, have you actually tried this product? The only reason someone would write such a thing is if they are benefiting monetarily from commercial detergents which are horrible for our bodies and environment. Think about how much plastic goes into
Our landfills from regular detergent. This product should be advertised on USA TV. It would put the detergent companies out of business! This is a great product and you certainly do not achieve same results with water!
Love it except for the smell
I have been using this product for a month and a similar product for 10 years. I like the way it cleans but the chemical smell that it leaves on clothes takes some getting used to. The package says that it has a lavender scent but it isn't noticeable. I will continue to use it but I wish the manufacturer could do something about the smell.

I purchased the duo package on Hsn and am absolutely floored with the condition of my clothes. I have white sheets and white batiste type drapes in my Bedroom and they always turn out lovely. In Florida I believe we have hard water and so I occasionally add a few tbsp of liquid detergent (and because I have to use it up and oxi clean) and my colored and whites are terrific. I raise parrots and so it frequently necessary for me to spot both colored and whites occasionally and I often cut up their fresh fruit and veggies and towels with no special treatment and I love this product. I’m telling everyone about how great it is ...I do admit to having trouble opening the eggs though. No allergy problems

The emperors new clothes
I have tested this myself with 3 white cloths I rubbed on the dirty patio. Washed them all 1 at a time in the washing machine. 1 with detergent. 1 with the egg. 1 with water. I found the detergent worked best and the egg and water gave the same results. Not as good but not terrible.
I would like to see some scientific proof that it does something other than bash the clothes about.
Great saving device
Makes clothes soft, clean, towels, t shirts sportswear bedding you name it all comes out clean with no added detergent maybe the odd softner, white vinegar , lemon juice, lavender scent.these just my personnel prefences, but egg is great on its own too. Great money saver great for environment
X3 Teens Works Fantastic
I have x3 Teens and I love this product gets boy smells out of socks and brings them crisp white. While I notice the smell on clothes while wet you can't smell after clothes have hung on line which is perfect in my opinion. Have found so long as you don't add detergents to clothes with egg you don't get slimy film on clothes ie, fab softener, disenfect ant etc...
Do not waste your time.
Do not waste your time on this product, it is not possible to clean clothes without enzymes such as those found in detergent that remove stains and odors fully from soiled clothes. This product along with the others out there say they clean your clothes through this magic that does not happen, what does happen is that most of these require you use hot water to make the product work properly, well hot water not only ruins clothes, sets blood stains, and also raises electricity bills but also any wash cycle just using water without the product wi...ll partially wash clothes because water in itself is a cleaning agent that removes some dirt and cleans, but not fully like laundry detergents. So this product only cleans because the water is doing a partial job, not because these do any magic. People this is the biggest household SCAM of the 21st century, do not waste your money! Also the 5 star ratings are either ignorant reviews without knowledge into this product because they did not do their research or they fell for the scam, or because most of them are paid to rate 5 stars and give best ratings because they received the product for free or were paid, which you will see a lot across the internet.
I know this review is to talk about how I liked or disliked the egg laundry system! This is my review and experience: When I used the pellets, I could feel a residue on the clothes like they didn't get completely clean even after I rinsed them a second time. I used them 4 more times, hoping it would get better, as I did like the idea that I wouldn't have to buy any detergent for a long time! That was a BIG mistake! On the sixth day, I broke out in a terrible rash all over my body - similar to measles but itched worse then when I had the real on...es! After I realized the reason, I contacted the company to make them aware! Asked me a few questions - after another email did admit there must have been something in the fragrance that was added to the pellets that caused the reaction and would be sending me a refund! A few days later, I got another email saying they didn't realize I lived in the US, so wouldn't be able to refund HSN, however, would offer me an exchange for another one of their products! I replied that I did NOT want anymore of their products! Haven't heard anymore! They are located in the UK - the company -(HSN), is in the US. I want to warn people if they are planning to purchase this item, better think twice! That is your decision!
ecoegg not working
I have no evidence of detergent in clear water after agitating "egg" In a bowl of water. It isn't working for me! Ok so I would not recommend this product because it does not work. I have notified email@example.com to express my concern. As of this writing I have not received a response.
I was looking forward to not having to buy soap powder again but my washing just isn't clean looking. My whites are dull and all the stains are still in after washing. Tea towels are shocking, too awful to hang them on the line! very disappointed in this product, shall start buying detergent again
Update on review.
I purchased the ecoegg on 12/27/16 from HSN. I opened the box on arrival but did not use it till June as I wanted to use the detergent I had on hand. I first used the pellets advised for colored clothing and that worked fine. A few days later I attempted to use the white egg for white clothing. First, I could not open the white egg and second, there were no dark tourmaline pellets. There were 8 pks of mineral pellets with whitner and 8 pks of mineral pellets for dark colors and only one pack of tourmaline pellets in the box upon arrival. So, I ...can only use the colored egg for approximately 72 washes. The rest of the box is useless.....Since my review I have contacted ecoegg customer service and received a prompt reply. The problem will be resolved. I found the product itself to do everything it said it would do and have changed my rating from one star to five stars......
Caused greasy looking stains
I started using this product after it sat for a month. After about 20 washes I started getting greasy smears on my clothes which I can not get out. Very upsetting since the are on all of my hospital scrubs!! I can not get the egg open to try and put more product in it. Seems like the company is not responding to any of the post. Not sure what to do at this point since it only has 30 day refund. Very disappointed.☹
Its the thought that counts...
So i received this as a Christmas present and thought yeah cool that'll save me some money, now I've come to realise i would have been more financially swayed by this product if i had of left it in the packaging and sold it on ebay to some other poor soul.
As someone who lives in a college dorm and has a communal laundry I've noticed that i get a brand new laundry detergent smell every time i do a load of washing which is really great for breaking monotony, that is if my clothes even come out clean at all. I'm assuming you only get the amou...nt of washes advertised if you follow the instruction perfectly, but in doing that my clothing would still reek of sweat and spilled alcohol. After receiving this product (little over a fortnight ago) i have had to do 5 separate loads of laundry, three times to test it with the 3 temperature settings, and the remaining 2 times to actually wash my clothes, considering the washing machine is coin operated it has costed me $15 dollars to receive this gift and try to get some use out of it, far from the original cost of the product but still a waste of time,water and money. Now i normally don't write reviews but this product is completely ridiculous and hope someone reads what i have to say before rushing to grab their phone for this amazing offer that they saw on their favourite morning talk show. If you wish to smell like you just got home from a hard day of work in the middle of summer when its July than i would recommend using this product long term, but would also recommend staying away from garlic as the smell will permeate your clothes until they receive a proper wash with real detergent. My condolences to those who purchased this product with their own money, and my deepest apologies to my mother for buying me this product thinking it would save money.
Questions & Answers
If the ecoegg stays in the washing machine through the wash AND rinse cycles, is it not washing during the final old water rinseing?
My understanding is that the ecoegg assists the washing process by softening the water to allow the fabric fibers to open and release the soil. Consequently, it wouldn't matter if the ecoegg is left during the rinse cycle.
That’s a great question! Hmmmm. I’ve been using the egg for several months, maybe a year and can say with a 100% certainty that I can’t live without it! I have bad allergies and this is the only product that I’ve found to thoroughly clean and not make me sneeze, wheeze and itch! My clothes feel and smell clean, even better than detergent. While I cannot give you a scientific answer about the rinsing, I can assure you that my clothes feel more thoroughly “rinsed” than they would with traditional detergent. Try it!
Thank you for replies - very helpful. I will use the egg as per instructions & count the number of times it does complete washes to see how close to the 70 washes as stated on the pack. Something tells me that IF it was possible to remove the egg prior to the final rinse, the egg would last a little longer for actual washing?
I’ve been using eco egg for a few months now and love it. I do occasionally need to use a bit of chlorine bleach in some white loads. Will this hurt the egg or the pellets? I’ve searched everywhere for the answer. I know bleach isn’t eco friendly but need to use it on occasion.
I’ve used it since it was first avail on shopping network and am disappointed that it is not generally available for purchase on regular market. I absolutely love it and frequently add a little liquid detergent (just because I have it in hand) as well as Oxi Clean and bleach for stained rags. I bought what I could on the off market when I found it. Difficulty I have is opening eggs for refills. I keep wondering why there isn’t more of a clamor for it. I love white whites and mine all look teriffic.
