Nigeria’s leading hygiene brand Dettol, launched the Dettol Handwash Challenge on April 20, 2020, to create more awareness on the importance of handwashing. Since then, more than 500 entries have been received across all social media platforms.
Because of the way germs spread, regularly washing your hands with soap and water for at least twenty seconds is the first step in preventing the spread of illness-causing germs. Even as we combat the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to keep this in mind and wash your hands as often as possible to protect yourself and your family.
In the past three weeks, four lucky winners have emerged, and to keep up the momentum, a weekly cash prize of N100,000 was recently introduced to encourage more participation in the Challenge.
On June 5, 2020, Dettol extended the Dettol Handwash Challenge for two more weeks to give more people the opportunity to participate. So far, some of your favourite social media influencers like Broda Shaggi, Laura Ikeji, Crase Clown, and several others have joined the Handwash Challenge to prove that handwashing can be fun too.
