These days there’s a subscription box for everything! I’m talking food, make up, pet treats…the list goes on and on. Companies have produced great boxes with excellent treats inside. ‘but that’s what they are, treats. What about the really useful stuff?
For People With Busy Lives
I have been trying out the Smol laundry capsule subscription box, which is perfect for people with busy lives, like me.
As a mum two boys, one of which is 4 weeks old, we get through a lot of laundry each week. Normally, that would mean I would have to head out to the shop and buy more washing liquid or powder fairly frequently.
That’s not so easy when it means making my way down three flights of stairs with a buggy, a baby and a 5 year old! Once we’re down, we are up another three big steps just to get out of the courtyard. Then the trek into town begins and it takes a little while as, thanks to the buggy, we can’t go the way we usually do and head over the train tracks via the bridge – we have to go the long way round.
Then of course, there’s lugging all the big heavy boxes and bottles back home, then trying to get everyone and everything back up the stairs again. Honestly, it is an absolute nightmare and a full blown plan of action is required!
Thankfully, Smol laundry products have taken away the hassle for me and made my busy life as a mum ten times easier. No longer do I have to embark on an epic expedition to Lidl to top up on my washing detergent, now I can just sit back, relax (ha!) and wait for the postman.
Straight Through Your Letterbox
The Smol washing capsules come in a super sleek child proof box. They fit through the letterbox with ease, so even if you’re out (my postman usually comes just after I’ve left for the school pick up), you can still get your capsules. It also means they take up less space in the cupboard – that’s another massive bonus for me as my utility room is packed full of beach things, bunny things, scooters, bikes and camping gear. The packaging is made from recycled and sustainable materials and is 100% recyclable as well, so once you’re done with your batch of laundry capsules, you can just pop all the packaging in your recycling bin.
Fresh Smell With Fewer Chemicals
The capsules themselves leave my washing smelling lovely and fresh. I’d say that the scent is very ‘clean’, which is exactly how I want my laundry to smell after it’s just been washed! Smol laundry capsules also use something they call ‘smol technology’, which means they use fewer chemicals than other laundry capsules without losing any of the cleaning power. They do, of course, also come in both bio and non-bio.
If you’re feeling a bit skeptical about using laundry capsules from a brand you’ve perhaps not heard much about before, let me put your mind at rest. As a parent, I always want what’s best for my children and ensure the products I use are of a great quality. The Smol laundry products have been tested against industry standards and perform better than or equal to other laundry capsules currently on the market. They also work out cheaper!
Smol laundry capsules are really convenient for me because both my time and space is precious. I can’t be dealing with lugging huge boxes of washing powder around, especially now I have a newborn. Receiving laundry capsules from Smol through the post has been a bit of a game changer. They smell lovely, they wash well and they take all the hassle out of the laundry chore!
