Omo mem­o­ries

YOURS (UK) - - Meeting Place - Mrs Howard, Da­gen­ham V Chick, Brighton

■ Does any­one re­mem­ber the Omo man? Back in the Six­ties, dressed in a white suit, he used to travel around the coun­try knock­ing on peo­ple’s doors! And if you could pro­duce a packet of Omo wash­ing pow­der from your kitchen cup­board he’d give you some money. He knocked on my door once and I pro­duced a box of Per­sil Soap Flakes so he gave me a voucher to­wards an Omo wash! ■ I re­mem­ber a com­pe­ti­tion about 40 years ago where some­one would call at your house to ask a ques­tion about Omo. I’m not sure what the ques­tion was but I know I had prac­tised the an­swer which was prob­a­bly, ‘adds bright­ness to white­ness’ Well some­how I got the ques­tion wrong and didn’t win the prize – that was prob­a­bly a packet of Omo!

■ Ev­ery Se­nior Mo­ment and Small Talk con­tri­bu­tion pub­lished gets a £10 High Street voucher.
