Rinse cycle – Can you leave in Ecoegg in the machine?
The Ecoegg is a completely different concept to using washing detergents which all contain soap. As the Ecoegg does not contain any “soap” agents, it leaves almost no residue on your clothes. Therefore, the rinse cycle can be significantly reduced, saving water, time and electricity. Some machines have a ‘rinse hold’ button, which, when pressed, skips the rinse cycle. If you are unable to cut out the rinse cycle, this will not affect the Ecoegg.
Is there scent on my washing from the fragrance?

How long will the Ecoegg last?
The amount of washes you will achieve from your Ecoegg will depend on the temperatures used, hardness of your water and the length of cycle the wash cycle. The hotter the wash, the quicker the pellets will dissolve. The laboratory testing for the maximum amount of washes was done in 86-degree water (warm water) short cycle.
Remember if your machine will allow you to “skip” the rinse cycle, then your Ecoegg will be saving time, money and electricity.
The Ecoegg does not need “refilling”, until it reaches the approximate half way level in the ecoegg. This is an indication to add just one more pack of the mineral pellets.
How does the Ecoegg laundry egg work?
The Ecoegg contains a number of small pellets, and it is these pellets that are the secret to the Ecoegg’s cleaning power.
