I agree. Anything creative and quirky that a player wants to associate with their character (as long as it isn't more statiscially advantageous than the spell is supposed to be) is encouraged by me. Cev, my 3e gnome character got Prestidigitation 1/day and it was one of his least powerful but most fun spells. He used it for something or another almost everyday.

Any actual change to an object (beyond just moving, cleaning, or soiling it)
persists only 1 hour.
