A BARNSLEY-based business, which counts Mrs Hinch among their fans, are set to expand with bigger premises and more staff.

Cares Laboratory, who are currently based in Redbrook, are moving to Dodworth and creating six new jobs.

The business were recognised in 2022 with the prestigious Queen’s Award for enterprise and innovation.

Creators of the innovative ‘Vamoosh®’ and ‘Boss It™’ brands, sales have doubled over the last 18 months, leaving them will little choice but to move to a bigger unit in Dodworth which has 100 per cent more space.

Cares Laboratory focus on inventing and developing innovative laundry and cleaning products that solve those little everyday problems. Their first innovation, Vamoosh® Pet Hair Dissolver, launched in 2017, is their best seller and is available online and in-store across the UK. The Vamoosh® product line has since expanded offering the only 6-in-1 Washing Machine Cleaner to dissolve clogged up hair, with its patented ‘Hair Dissolving Technology’, and a Dishwasher Cleaner which uses 90 per cent less plastic compared to leading brands.

In October 2023, Cares Laboratory launched the innovative Boss It™ brand, with its Rapid-Dryer Ball. Designed for faster, lower-costing tumble dryer cycles, the Rapid-Dryer Ball uses its patented ‘HeatBounce’ Technology to redistribute heat around the drum. This cuts the amount of time needed to dry clothes, while slicing up to 40 per cent off energy costs. At the start of 2024, the Boss It™ Rapid-Dryer Ball gained the widely-recognised Good Housekeeping Institute accreditation after passing rigorous lab and consumer quality testing.

Both brands harbour social media super fans including Instagram cleaning gurus Mrs Hinch and Lynsey Queen of Clean who has frequently demonstrated various products to ITV’s ‘This Morning’ viewers.

Dave Toms, director and co-founder of Cares Laboratory, commented on the expansion: “The growth we’ve experienced in recent years has been phenomenal. After moving to a larger premises in Redbrook in June 2022, our continued success necessitated another move. With the launch of Boss It™ and our plans for further product expansions, our new space at Dodworth Business Park offers the flexibility needed to support our growth and expand our export, which currently reaches 25 countries, including Europe, the USA, and Australia.

“This move will also provide capacity for approximately six new roles within the next 12 months.

“Despite our growth, we remain committed to being a local Barnsley business. We’re excited about the move and the future it brings.”
