Color Coded Cleaning: Colordentify


   Colordentify….the name hit me out of nowhere.  We were trying to figure out a good name for our color coded rag/mop program, geared towards hospitality, healthcare and facility cleaning.    We have had a color coded rags program in place for many years, but never had a name for it.  So several years ago while we were brainstorming I came up with a term I thought would catch on…Colordentify…Color for the various color options, and Identify, so you can easily identify what cloth you need for your task on hand (like red for bathrooms, blue for general cleaning, green for food areas, etc.).  Put those two together, and you’ve got Colordentify….I thought it rolled off the tongue but one expensive trademark later, I’m not so sure.

Turning them into wiping rags helps to extend their lifecycle, and reduces your carbon footprint.
