Chic Cleaning Supplies?

I was brainstorming today on all the possible ways I could coerce myself into cleaning our apartment more regularly. Not just tidying up, but actual cleaning cleaning. You know. Chores. And the laundry, too. Hmm. Schedules? Bribes? Threats? None of these seem at all exiting to me and so my chores continue to be completed only on an as-desperately-needed basis. Sure, it works, but there’s gotta be a better way.

But then today I had a genius idea, while browsing through my local West Elm. Chic cleaning supplies. Duhh. If cute clothes can make getting dressed more fun, imagine what cute cleaning supplies can do? After the jump, some real pretty cleaning supplies that have actually made me feel excited to clean house. (They might also make–believe it or not!–excellent Christmas gifts… maybe for your husband? ;)
