Threw In My Vests, They Did The Rest

Well, almost … some time-honored hand scrubbing was needed. Am talking about the detergents of the early days of my life. I recall three brands and their packaging.

OMO was my earliest encounter. Not sure what OMO stood for, I thought it should have been OWO (one-woman operation) since my mum single-handedly did all the washing.

Not long after that came FAB – which could fabulously evict scums of any nature. Oh yes, later there was even a variant called Power Laundry Bar, which came in the form of a blue rectangular bar.

Finally came BREEZE which I supposed could make laundry work a breeze.

These old timers have long been overshadowed by so many other new brands, including one that promises to make things Vanish…LOL
