The secret to a great cleaning timetable is to tackle one room each day. That way nothing takes too long and nothing feels too overwhelming. And when nothing takes too long, and nothing feels too overwhelming… you are FAR more likely to stick to it!

Always use a good quality laundry detergent such as smol bio or non-bio laundry capsules… if you’ve not had your FREE TRIAL yet then what are you waiting for?
  2. Dishes will always need washing. Whether you’re using a dishwasher or washing up by hand with washing up liquid, smol has you covered with products to match the big brands whilst saving you carbon, chemicals and plastic.
