I like the orange ones (that I got from San Labs a long time ago).
The Kodak ones are a bit "boring", so yes, bring on some intense colours!
I clean my PTRs with water and soap from time to time, but use the Kodak white PTR cleaning tape for daily cleaning. Page 45 in their catalogue. Cat no. 8025025.
