CORNWALL, England — The beaches of Cornwall, England have a splash of color that they don’t usually have.

Thousands and thousands of pink detergent bottles have washed up on shore.

The National Trust is leading efforts to clean up what is believed to be stain remover around Poldhu Cove.

More bottles have been spotted further out at sea.

“Quite often they fall off, sink to the bottom of the sea and then they might lie there for months before a storm breaks them open,” Justin Whitehouse, the National Trust’s lead ranger for South West Cornwall, told BBC 4’s Today programme on Tuesday.

Storm Frank hit last week as high tide and high winds pummeled the country for days.
