It means basically the same thing as slösa, however öda is much less common, which is why I picked it!

Yes. But first of all, öda is not a commonly used word - the word slösa is much more widespread. Slösa basically means the same thing as öda in many cases, thus you can:

  • Slösa mat - Waste food

  • Slösa tid - Waste time

  • Slösa pengar - Waste money

etc..

So you can basically slösa anything :). Vaska on the other hand is more specifically used for:

Since vaska has become somewhat of a popular word among some people (stekare and brats), vaska is probably also used for other stuff that is being wasted, but the origin is from wasting champagne.
