Vaska as good as Persil
I could never imagine myself saying this but after using three jugs of Vaska, I think it is safe to say that Vaska is as good or maybe better than Persil.
First of all, we have hard water and persil was the only one magic that kept our whites white and I used boiling and sanitary loads only. Now with Vaska I wash whites on sanitary only instead of boil out and everything else on hot instead of sanitary and the results are superb! I even scalled back on couple of rinsing too.
The other thing I noticed, my little old euro washer had some rust under the boot and that is almost gone now too! Just clean metal.
I let my friend use some and she is totaly sold on it too.
I do prewash on every load and put all detergent inside the drum. Don't care for the softener. It is nice but I have the dryer Bounce bar in my dryer and I'm very happy with it.
The dosage that works for me is - one capfull for load 4.00 washer and 1/2 for 1.75 washer. I also use the oxy bleach on every load 1/2 cupfull in big machine, 1/4 in little one. Extra rinse.
On prewash I use half of the amount.
Our laundry is smelling great, whites are white and some even whiter. Darks don't fade even thou I use sanitary cycles. I am really surprised but very happy.
On one of my friends visit I rinsed my hands in the kitchen and noticed her little towel had that musty odor. I didn't want to say it to her so I asked how big is her washer compare to mine- we both have LG. She started to say how she starting to hate the washer b/c her laundry starting to smell. I asked if I could take a look.
She had slight grey color sludge build up in the boot and under with some dog hair in it and it smelled little moldy. I found out she only used cold or warm water and speed cycles.
After talking to her, trying explain what to do, now she is using sanitary on whites and hot cycles and extra rinse.
Her washer got better and the smell was gone.
Before the first load I told her to spray mildew bathroom cleaner on the booth and let it sit. Than doing loads of towels and washing them and rewashing on sanitary and extra short wash for good rinse cleaned the smell out of the towels. She told me her washer is clean now after about a week.
She was thanking me saying she had no idea that FL is so tricky.
This is second case of smelly washer I had chance to help with.
This friend of mine now got her neighbor using Vaska and her daughter and friend too.
I hope that the results of using Vaska long term will be as good as they are now. Vaska is saving me lots of money too.
And one more thing. Vaska did not cause any problem w/ my bf's dermatitis. So I think it's fine for people w/ skin problems too, just remember- rinse it good!
