Get laundry detergent straight to your door with your 9 free washes by getting free laundry capsules from Smol UK.  Smol laundry capsules are plastic-free, smell great and are sent to you in the post!

Cardboard child-lock packaging

When you go down a supermarket aisle shopping for laundry products, one thing I notice is that there is plastic everywhere. There aren’t any options to buy plastic-free capsules and that are in plastic-free packaging as of yet.

Smol products are sent to you in the post in a letterbox sized cardboard box. There’s no plastic in sight. The great thing is, Smol have thought about these boxes landing in our homes and so have made a child-lock on the packaging. Trust me it works! I had to read the instructions on the box to open the box and get hold of the capsules, so there’s no issues at all with children getting into these.

Alcohol-based capsules

Compared with your traditional capsules from well-known laundry brands like Persil, Fairy, Bold or Ariel, the Smol capsules are alcohol-based and not containing plastic, which means they completely dissolve in the wash.

In fact when I asked Smol over Instagram what the capsules were made of, they said; “they are polyvinyl alcohol which is fully biodegradable”. This means there is no residue whatsoever left in your wash and no plastic to block up your pipes. I wash my clothes on the lowest temperature on my washing machine which is 30 degrees, and I haven’t had a problem with residue, whereas with other capsules in the past I have had bits of the capsule left on the clothes at times where they haven’t fully dissolved.

A concentrated liquid in the capsule

Smol laundry capsules have a more concentrated liquid. They’ve found a way to use lower levels of chemicals without impacting performance. Whilst there are some chemicals in these Smol capsules, I am happy that they have lowered the levels compared to what I was using.

I have tried some other non-chemical laundry products such as the eco laundry detergent sheets, but I just found they didn’t actually clean the clothes. Being a busy mum I just need my clothes to be washed properly as I don’t have time to be putting them in again or soaking in white vinegar before putting a wash on.

My son who is currently 9 months is in weaning, and of course food goes everywhere on a daily basis – I’d have to soak all of his clothes in large volumes of vinegar – it’s just not feasible for me at this stage in our lives as a young family. So whilst Smol isn’t the most sustainable option out there admittedly due to its use of low level chemicals, for me and my family this is the best change we’ve been able to make without compromising on performance. It significantly lowers our plastic use in this area and without Smol I’d be back using the traditional laundry capsules as I was before.

Fresh smelling clothes

On every use with Smol capsules I’ve noticed a fresh smell when I open the washing machine. Smol do use ethically sourced essential oils in their capsules to make sure your clothes do smell great but without being overbearing. I think they’ve got the balance spot on personally.

Try the samples first

I didn’t go full steam ahead into the Smol products – first I tried their samples which you can sign up to on their website. Be prepared though as you’re signing up to the monthly subscription at this stage. So if you try the product and find it’s not for you – you need to make sure you cancel your subscription. However this can be done very easily over email and Smol are very prompt at replying back to emails and social media so there shouldn’t be any issues.
