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!
