Guide Review - Vaska Spotoff Product Review - Vaska Spotoff Laundry Stain Remover

Vaska is a Berkeley, California-based company started by Julia Fry, a fashion designer. Their products include include Herbatergent™, Herbasoft™ fabric softener, Spotoff™ stain remover and Oxygenbleach. Every product is labeled with both what ingredients they contain as well as those they don't.

While I had tested their Herbatergent and Oxygenbleach several months ago, I had not tried spotoff. Available in a 22 oz. spray bottle, Spotoff is a pretreater for stains on clothes. It is also suitable to use on upholstery and rugs. Recommendation for use is to spray the stain with Spotoff and allow it to sit for 10 minutes prior to washing.

I gave it a try on grease and some grass stains. Both stains were removed with no trouble. Spotoff is safe for use on colors and all washable fabrics.

Listed ingredients are:

  • Botanical surfactants
  • Natural Blending Agents
  • Lavender extract
  • Alcohol
  • Water

    Spotoff is available at some Target Stores, Duane Reade in New York City and online.
