We’re not exactly sure who wants to read a blog about laundry (or dishwashing), 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 dirty dishes. Welcome to a smol blog. posted.


easy as pie

Posted by smol on

In 1998 a group of catering students from Stratford-upon-Avon cooked the world’s largest Steak and Kidney pie. The pie dish measured nearly 10 metres long by over 2 metres wide and was 0.6m deep. That’s a lot of pie. And a lot of pastry (816.69kg to be precise).   We are sure the pie was delicious but can you imagine the washing up? Luckily for us and our more modest pies there are smol’s very new and very brilliant dishwash tablets. Just pop one in the dishwasher and those dirty dishes will be a thing of the past.   However,...

Big vs. smol

Posted by smol on

“Look how big you are!”, “we’re going to need a bigger boat”, “think big” – we’re constantly told how great it is to be big. Tom Hanks famously used a magic genie wish on it.   But what if instead of being big, we could have all of the qualities, but in a smaller form? Laundry is infamously synonymous with this notion of big; overflowing piles of clothes, large detergent boxes and huge powder scoops.   But, at smol, we’ve started the laundry revolution. Think Ant-Man, of the laundry world; all the power of a larger man but concentrated into...

Six soiled cardigans (how?!), Fiiiiiiiiiiiiive crumpled school skirts! Four toys in their pockets, Three ties dipped in tea, Two musty towels, And one present; Alan Partridge on DVD.  Everyone knows about the 12 Days of Christmas; the rare Partridge in a Pear Tree, Seven Swans a Swimming and those Four Calling Birds.   With all the rushing about, everyone forgets about you, the household wizards, keeping everyone clean and everything in check....

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 I'm a celebrity

Posted by smol on

  ‘I’m a Celeb’ returns to our screens tonight and sees Dec (or is it Ant? We have no idea, no one really knows for sure which one is which anyway) partner up with Holly Willoughby for the first time to take 10 ‘celebrities’through their paces in the Australian outback.   They will face all manner of horrors over the next 2 months; starvation, snakes, damp sleeping conditions and the possibility that someone brought an acoustic guitar to play ‘Wonderwall’ around the campfire 😜   In the unexpected possibility that this encourages you to go camping, we’ve compiled our top...
