We Won! Queen's award for Enterprise: innovation 2022

We are incredibly excited to announce that we have been personally recommended by HRH Queen Elizabeth to receive a Queen's Award for Enterprise - Innovation 2022 for our groundbreaking Vamoosh® Pet Hair Dissolver product.

The Queen's Award for Enterprise is the highest official recognition for British companies so we are understandably over the moon at our latest achievement.  Since we launched Cares Laboratory Ltd in 2017, our Vamoosh brand has gone from strength to strength and we are very proud to receive this incredible recognition for our first innovation, Vamoosh Pet Hair Dissolver.

We’re not resting on our laurels though – we have more patented inventions planned for launch this year (watch this space!) and are confident we can add more Queens Awards in the future. 

It’s been a great ride so far for us and we’re excited to see what the future brings.  Thank you to everyone who has bought, tried, and shared our posts about Vamoosh®!  We appreciate each and every one of you!

Henry Hinch isn't keen on it... but Mrs Hinch thinks it's incredible!

Did you see Vamoosh on Mrs Hinch's stories today?

Mrs Hinch shared her top tip for washing pet bedding today on her instagram stories today to her 4.1million followers..  and yes, of course she recommended the one and only Vamoosh Pet Hair Dissolver!

In several stories, Mrs Hinch (@mrshinchome) explained that Henry doesn't really like his bedding to be washed... and must like it to stink...! However, Mrs Hinch has been using Vamoosh for the last 3 years as a way to wash his bedding so that it is hygienically clean and hair-free - and also leaves the washing machine hair-free and sparkling clean without the need to scrape out any hair or run an extra cycle. 

Henry Hinch Mrs Hinch Vamoosh

Read what Mrs Hinch said about Vamoosh and Henry: 

"Henry doesn’t like his blanket being washed.  I think he just likes it to stink… I don’t know?

I’ve got to wash it.

On a serious note guys…Vamoosh.

This stuff is incredible guys.  I know I have shared it on my stories a lot but it’s amazing. I’ve been using it for around 3 years now. To summarise, it dissolves pet hair in the washing machine.  So when I need to wash Henry’s towels, blankets, bedding, you name it, whack it in the machine with one of these little sachets and it all comes out completely hair-free. Including the washing machine, so there’s no pet hair left in your machine, which is amazing and it smells completely clean afterwards as well, so it’s just a must-have for me, and like I said I have been using this for almost 3 years and don’t plan on stopping any time soon.

So I’ll pop a link up guys for you to try it and see how you get on."

Mrs Hinch fans rave about Vamoosh Pet Hair Dissolver

A savvy group of Mrs Hinch fans on Facebook have come up with some suggestions to remove pet hair in the washing machine... with multiple people recommending Vamoosh Pet Hair Dissolver!

The group of cleaning enthusiasts frequently post questions and recommendations for each other with lots of people responding to a post about removing pet hair. The Express article reveals:

"Multiple people agreed that the product was effective, with one adding: “I’ve tried a few washing machine cleaners but Vamoosh is definitely the best. I buy in bulk from Amazon as I use it once a week after my pet blanket wash, but you can buy in supermarkets/home bargains etc.”

Mrs Hinch, who is currently on maternity leave following the birth of her second child, has amassed 4.1 million followers on instagram - and even though she's not busy posting about cleaning, her hoardes of followers still have lots of tips and tricks.
