Smol is a company which offers laundry detergent and dishwasher tablets delivered to your door, through the letterbox. After seeing quite a lot of advertising for them in the last few days I got curious and headed to their website to see what exactly they have to offer.
How it works:
When clicking on the 'Get started' button, you get to answer a few questions. Depending on how many capsules you use per wash (one or two) and how many times you wash clothes in a week you get a box of 24 capsules delivered as often as you need.
There is an option for a free trial (9 capsules) for which you pay £1 postage. I wanted to try both the bio (tough on stains) and non-bio (better for sensitive skin) detergent so I paid £2 for 18 capsules. So far, so good. The small boxes arrived quickly and after working in the garden for half a day, then cooking for the other half, it was time to put the capsules to test. First try went well considering the state in which my 'try all the recipes' clothes were in.
I've tried the capsules on 30˚C, 40˚C, 60˚C and 90˚C so far and they did a great job every time and they just smell so fresh it made me think very seriously about my previous choice in laundry detergent.
you can modify, pause or cancel your subscription, through your online account any time you want.
you can choose bio or non-bio detergent
it gets delivered through the post so you don't need to keep writing this item on your shopping list and risk running out of it completely because you forgot about it
the packaging is made from sustainable materials and is 100% recyclable
products are cruelty-free
they claim to use fewer chemicals per wash (yet still do a great job)
only one fragrance available (but it does smell super fresh)
So far I'm pleased with how both the bio and non-bio capsules perform. I will continue to use them, and if anything happens, fantastic or not, I will provide an update.
*It turns out a very good friend of mine has been using Smol for quite a while now, and she's very happy with them. It also turns out I don't talk to my friends about this type of household stuff otherwise I would have tried them a long time ago. I do wish people would talk more about whatever they find that makes life easier.
I've recently tried their surface sprays. The starter pack includes 3 'bottles for life', 3 tablets ( one each for multi-surface, bathroom and glass). What I can say after using them for the last few weeks is that they smell nice and so far have done the job. I do really like the idea of just buying refills (which come in the shape of a small tablet) rather than waste so much plastic every time you buy another bottle. They are also cruelty-free.
Have you ever tried them? If yes, please let me know in the comments what you think about them?
I hope life is treating you well.
