As a kid, being asked “what’s your favorite color?” can be a crucial moment in your life. “Mine’s blue!” I’d chirp, and watch as others would smile and nod in agreement. Even into adulthood, color plays an important role in your life, especially at home. It can make all the difference in turning a dark place into a bright one or making a small space feel bigger. It allows you to put some personality into the room — and now, it can inspire you to clean, too.

Lately, I’ve noticed a movement toward #colorcleaning all over social media, where users are uploading their colorful haul of supplies and creating ASMR-like videos utilizing those products. This TikTok video by @cleaningmamabee has almost six million views with people commenting on their request for the account to make even more color-themed cleans. 

On the other hand, the commenters do remark on how wasteful — and dangerous — it is to use every cleaning supply at once. I agree, because mixing cleaners can be extremely harmful. While it’s nice to see so many people celebrating cleaning in this way, I caution you to not follow that action. Instead, take the intention, “clean with color,” and use it to reinvigorate your home’s supplies with dependable products (and use them for their exact purposes).

I found myself down a rabbit hole trying to find every color combo out there, but the most prominent hue I’ve seen has got to be pink. And what better way to celebrate Apartment Therapy’s Color Month than to revamp your cleaning cart with your own colorful collection?

Here are some rosy finds that’ll help start your pretty in pink collection and hopefully inspire you to tidy up.

For an everyday cleaner, Method All-Purpose Surface Spray is a great option. It can be used on most surfaces, such as counters, tile and wood floors, stone, and glass.

It can be challenging to clean all the crevices of your water bottle, which is why a tool made just for it can be extremely helpful. The Scotch-Brite Water Bottle Scrubber is perfect for getting into those hard-to-reach corners. It’s safe to use on glass, plastic, or stainless steel. It’s also dishwasher safe and sleek enough to store on a hook by your sink or within your cabinets.
