Vamoosh Pet Hair Dissolver has enjoyed 'significant growth' and is now sold in a staggering 1,000 shops.
Back in January, the 'world's first pet hair dissolver for washing machines' sold out on the Pets At Home website in the first week.
That amazing response has continued and the firm has hired a distribution company to handle online orders. The product has also been certified by PETA as a cruelty-free brand. And a new, improved formula is coming, the firm says.
Vamoosh is the brainchild of Barnsley scientist Alex Butcher, aged 21 and fellow scientist Dave Toms. They were lucky to have the backing of a friend and local busines ower who gave them dedicated laboratory space and helped to fund their innovation.
Alex was runner-up in the National Apprentice Laboratory Technician of the Year Awards 2016.
She said: "Pet hair is notoriously difficult to get rid of. Vamoosh is definitely a game changer for the owners of the 16 million dogs and cats across teh UK who have a constant battle with it."
