EcoEgg Laundry Egg 5 "EXCELLENT PRODUCT" 24 April 2018 This is an excellent product, so easy to use and effective. I think the customers who say that their laundry does not smell fresh are forgetting: 1. The instructions say you should do a very hot empty wash first, to remove the scum that builds up when you use normal laundry liquid. 2. That most laundry liquids contain perfume - this is what you are smelling, not freshness!
