  • Vaska really is that good? Is it cost effective? I only use one big jug of All F&C detergent per year.

  • Wash them more if you typically go a few wearings between washings
    Use the warmest water you can depending on type of material
    treat stains immediately
    i love either Gain or Tide. Cheap detergent doesn't work well

  • I love it! I had read a few things online before buying it, and decided to try it. It works on everything! It does cost a little bit more, but if your only using 1 huge thing on all, it should t be that much more. We use one container a month, just like with the all.... Read this,

    Maybe you aren't using enough per wash? Or add a half cup of borax to each load. It is a detergent booster.
