Omo

I don't miss it, (never do the washing), just wonder what happened to it. Also "Tide". Or are these products now called something different?

Haven't seen Omo since Lonnie Donegan washed his chewing gum in it... :D But there's a website: http://www.omocareline.com.au/Omo/Product+Range/Omo.htm

Tide I have seen, a lot more recently than it disappeared from British shops. Perhaps on a trip to the continent? It also has a website: http://www.tide.com

These multinational manufacturers often keep selling their superseded products in other markets for years.

I dont remember "Omo" but legend has it that some saucy housewives would leave it on the window ledge to signal "old man out".

My favourite advertising slogan was for a soap powder called "Radion" ...

Think about it !!!

Didn't Radion come in a bright orange box?

*ahem* Should I rephrase that?

Wasn't it OMO that came with a toy cowboy? It was one of the washing powders. The little guy was stuck to the outside of the box somehow.
