We’re not exactly sure who wants to read a blog about laundry, but having one helps more people find us on the internet – so every so often we’ll post an update, maybe some detergent trivia, perhaps a joke about non-bio, sometimes even an ode to the laundrette. Welcome to a smol blog. posted.


X factor final time

Posted by smol on

  Tonight is the final of this year’s X-Factor, and everyone at team smol will be tuning in to watch Scarlett take on Anthony and Dalton to be crowned this year’s winner and by default, the headline act to switch on Chingford’s Christmas lights. Since 2004, we’ve watched thousands of contestants don the stage, dancing, prancing and surprising the millions of us watching at home. Frankly, the only thing we haven’t seen is Simon wearing a fully buttoned shirt. For the thousands of contestants, there have been some real winners of the show to go on to record deals and sell out...

smol meets the apprentice

Posted by smol on

Another year means another trip to City Hall, as we get ready to tune in to watch Lord Sugar’s next business candidates stumble their way through a 12 week scavenger hunt.   There will be tears, tantrums and the inevitable plethora of jokes that even Penguin biscuits would be ashamed of. Over the next 3 months, 16 of the UK’s most ambitious entrepreneurs will be locked up in a London townhouse with no access to the outside world, presumably also refusing mealtimes because they’ll just be eating each other for breakfast.   No one here at smol can help them...

On the 1st September, Antwerp welcomed 65,000 people to celebrate Laundry Day. The only difference is, their Laundry Day involves less electronic appliances and more electronic dance.   The one-day dance festival in Belgium is regarded as one of the craziest in Europe, and if you missed it this year, why not check our top ten tips to recreate your very own laundry day festival at home.
