Our Story

Stephen Steinberg founded Raw Athletics, the company behind Vapor Fresh, back in 2008 for one reason- to develop stronger, safer cleaning products that could keep up with an active lifestyle.

While playing hockey at the University of Maryland, he needed something to keep his pads from stinking up his dorm room. When he couldn't find any products strong enough that were free of irritating chemicals, he decided to develop a better sports equipment cleaning spray himself.

Today, Vapor Fresh® has combined a safety-first mindset with cutting-edge chemistry to create an entire line of cleaning products for active lifestyles. From pro and college sports teams, to gyms and fitness studios, to homes across the country, you can find Vapor Fresh® everywhere.
