I'm still using Vaska on some of my clothes and I like it very much. I am using it on wool socks, silk items, sweaters, and anything delicate. I do sometimes use it on towels and occasionally on sheets, although I usually wash my sheets in either Persil or Tide with Oxiclean added. I tend not to use it on things that are really dirty - I use either Tide or Persil on those types of things. I have used Vaska with the Vaska oxygen bleach on towels and sheets and it does a nice job, but I don't think it whitens quite as much as either Persil or Tide with Oxiclean.
I did post before about my opinion of the Vaska oxygen bleach. It has a very strong odor as does the spot remover. I find the oxygen bleach smell lingered in the finished laundry. I much prefer my pure sodium percarbonate or the Shaklee Nature Bright (Shaklee contains sodium percarbonate but also enzymes) neither of which have any smell.
Larsi, I've used the Vaska oxygen bleach. While it doesn't smell good up close, I don't notice any residual odor left in the laundry - just a hint of lavender.
So, the HerbaSoft is ok. Do not like Vaska Oxygen Bleach at all...but, I still LOVE the Herbatergent. I still cannot believe how soft my clothes, sheets and towels are. Honestly, some things have never felt this soft! Amazing!!
