“Messy play is an integral part of children’s early childhood development. It allows kids’ imaginations to soar while helping to shape and mold social, creative, and critical thinking skills. We, therefore, appeal to parents to let kids be kids, allow them to play and explore as we have sorted your washing needs with the new improved OMO that delivers on unbeatable stain removal with fresh fragrance,” said Wangechi Gitahi, Trade and Consumer Marketing Manager, Unilever Uganda.
“The idea that dirt is a good is not only catchphrase for OMO. It lies at the core of our brand, supported by patent protected technology that gives your children the freedom to get dirty while giving the parent assurance that OMO will remove those tough stains after a day filled with messy play exploring the wonders of the world,” she added.
“With the new and improved OMO unbeatable stain removal formula, our customers will now use less powder for washing, which saves them money especially during these hard economic times. It is available from as low as Shs500 in all shops, duukas and supermarkets close to you,” Unilever Category and Channel Development Manager – Home Care, Emmanuel Kabugo, said at the launch.
“We believe in making dirt a proud mark of a life fully lived! Trust OMO to take care of your clothes while allowing you to celebrate life without fear of stains,” he added.
