Smol Plastic-Free Laundry Detergent

Following on from my blogging reboot, I really wanted to share my experience of Smol plastic-free laundry detergent (because yes, that’s who I’ve become…)

I first came across the brand in the Plastic-Free Norwich Group on Facebook (I highly recommend joining if you’re looking to move towards a more sustainable lifestyle).

I had no idea that such a thing existed. I’ve been buying Ecover detergent for a few years, but felt a bit disenchanted because it’s hard to get the refills during lockdown.

The Smol website claims that the packaging is plastic-free and the detergent itself has fewer harsh chemicals than other brands. They also promise that it’s cheaper than other detergents and is cruelt- free.

What’s not to love, right?

I initially ordered a free trial of their non-bio (you have to give card details because it’s a subscription service) and paid for the postage.

It arrived through my letterbox a couple of days later and I was very pleased. The packaging was both child-safe and plastic-free, as promised.

Although I will admit it took me a couple of goes to get the parcel open but when I did, I was greeted by cute blue bubbles.

And they washed my clothes beautifully. I only used one capsule in a full load and my clothes came out clean and fresh.

I was highly impressed. So highly impressed, in fact, that I immediately did another load of washing and had similar results.

Needless to say, I won’t be cancelling my subscription (although I might reduce the frequency) any time soon and may buy their dishwasher capsules too. Highly recommended!

Want to give it a try?

I have a handy referral link where you can order a trial » Disclaimer: If you order a trial I get a discount on my next delivery.


Hi, I'm Lucy. I've lived in Norfolk since 2001 and in that time I've grown to love this fine county. From the city of Norwich, to the countryside villages and sweeping coastline, there's so much to explore and hope to share my experiences with you here.
