These days, we’re all looking for ways to cut costs and do our bit for the planet. So if there’s a product available that ticks both those boxes then we’re sold.

Case in point: The award-winning ecoegg Laundry Egg - a detergent and fabric softener replacement that removes the need for stocking up on endless expensive (and bulky) boxes of washing powder and fabric conditioner.

It’s built up quite the cult following in recent years - the Yahoo UK shopping team included - and if you’ve been considering buying one for a while now’s the time to make you move as it’s included in Amazon Prime Day’s two-day shopping event.

£5.83 £11.99 at Amazon

Reduced from £11.99 to £5.83 (for Amazon Prime members only), you’re looking at an impressive saving of 51%. That’s a bigger discount than you’ll ever find in your local supermarket, where we’ve only ever seen Laundry Eggs a third off.

It’s very easy - and cheap - to use. Simply fill the egg with a box of spherical mineral pellets (one box is included with a Laundry Egg purchase) and stick it in the washing machine drum along with your clothes.

The pellets will last for 70 cycles before needing to be swapped with Laundry Egg Refills and your washing will be left smelling clean and fresh.

Lucky for you, the pellets are also included in the Prime Day sale (£2.91 down from £6.99) so it’s worth adding a couple of boxes of those to your basket, too, so you’re sorted for a good couple of hundred washes.

After all, it’s not like they’re going to go off.
