More and more cleaning products are featuring plant-based ingredients that are safe for our environment and much safer to use around our children and pets.
Vaska, a green laundry detergent care line based in California, is ideal for parents looking for a gentle, but tough, laundry solution.Vaska uses only plant-based ingredients and contains no petroleum, carcinogens, or other harmful chemicals. Vaska herbatergent even carries the EPA-approved Design for the Environment seal. It’s also hypoallergenic so it’s perfect for people with sensitive skin and for washing baby clothes.
Don’t let the green label fool you into thinking Vaska isn’t tough on stains, though. The San Francisco Giants use it to wash their uniforms, the San Francisco production of Wicked uses it to wash their costumes (it’s the only formula that can get off the witch’s green face makeup), and Royal Laundry, the largest commercial laundry plant on the West Coast, uses it to wash linens for more than 100 hotels in the San Francisco Bay Area.
This sounds all wonderful and idealistic but does it really work? I mean it’s all fine and dandy if it’s gentle on your skin, but will it really remove that chocolate or dirt stain?
I’ve been using the full-sized unscented bottle of Vaska for about three weeks now and I love it! The unscented formula contains lavender extract, which is one of my favorite fragrances, but it leaves no scent on your clothes. Both my girls and my husband are really tough on their clothing and Vaska gently and effectively cleans our laundry without any nasty chemicals.
A 48-ounce bottle washes about 32 loads of laundry. You can buy Vaska online at Amazon in handy 6-packs.
