What else can Pledge do for you?

Pledge has been used in my family for years and then some.  It not only cleans dust off, but it nourishes the wood and it also is great for stainless steel.

I have had fun with this product in my younger years with turning on the music and getting the fuzzy slippers on with clean towels under the slippers and polishing my wood floor.  The dogs forgave me after the evil look I was given after they slid to the back door and no one was hurt, but did you know Pledge is a great cleaner for stainless steel?  Yeah, I didn't know that either until a few weeks ago when the question came up to what cleans stainless steel the best.  Pledge...OK, I ran to my kitchen sink after reading this and boy does it work great!  Better then a glass cleaner. Give it a try...you will be amazed like I was...I do need to keep two cans in stock now since I love it on my wood and now stainless steel.

I have had Lemon Pledge in my home since I was small. I always have a can handy, but despite having the cloths and the spray in my home, I don't use them as much as I used to. The old formula had a foam spray, but the newer one is more liquidy and seems more like it dribbles out instead of foams out.

I also feel that it adds too much of a silicone type finish on things which is a bit greasy feeling. I have used it on a few occasions, but as time has gone on, I have opted for other methods of preserving wood such as lemon oil.

I do want to mention that although this is recommended for granite or stone, I don't recommend that. You need to avoid putting anything on your stone which will cause problems down the road. Simple water or weak cleansers will be fine for those.

See my Performance comments to understand my rating.

Performance
I am not sure how to rate Lemon Pledge at this point. The older version was pretty good for some surfaces such as our fold out desk, chairs, and nice wood tabletop. However, the newer version does not seem to be good for much of anything. I am not sure if I got a bad can or if that is indeed the new formula for Pledge take it or leave it. I find that the newer formula is more like silicone which leaves a film that is a bit icky feeling and it does not do much of anything except leave a cloudy finish. The older style did leave things a bit nicer, although I didn't use it much due to build up sometimes. I still have a can of this as well as the cloths for a quick emergency cleaning, but again, I use them infrequently. Now with this new formula which feels different, I am not using it at all. Based upon the new formula, I would rate this 1, but the older one, I would say 3, so I leave this at 2 for average.

Scent
I always love the smell of lemon pledge and would love to use it based upon that alone!

    Comments about Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent:

    I have always loved pledge furniture polish with the lemon scent. It works great on all wood surfaces and it also helps to keep the dust from sticking in between polishes. I use pledge about once a week on all of my wood surfaces. It makes them shine and look clean and fresh. I like the clean lemon scent left behind. Its not over bearing but it leaves the room lightly scented and adds to the over all freshness a room gets from a good cleaning. It is great for anything that is wood including wooden picture frames, ceiling fan blades, wooden chair backs, leather surfaces including the car and the dash of the car, it also works well on stainless steel! I have found extra uses of pledge and I'm always discovering more that I can use it for. It keeps things much shinier then other products made for wood and I don't feel like it makes my stuff feel greasy and I don't detect any residue left behind like what happens when using oil for wood. It brings back the luster of new wood and I like that I can touch things after and not feel oil or grease. I have tried lots of other wood polishes, but I'm a big pledge fan. It works great and there really are no drawbacks other then it is pricey. A little goes a long way and it works better by spraying directly on a rag or cloth rather then spraying directly on the surface to be cleaned. That way it's evenly applied and no worry about using too much. I defiantly recommend using pledge lemon furniture polish because it works well, it keeps the wood nice between cleanings, a can lasts a long time, and it's a tried and true brand that's been around for a very long time. Most stores carry the pledge brand and it's affordable. If your like me and like to experiment, I'm sure you will also find many other uses for the pledge too. I even use it on my mud jeep after I wash it. It's not for painted surfaces but it really makes my black jeep sparkle! I always have a can on hand and don't let it run out at my house. Everyone should have a can!

    Comments about Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent:

    Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent is great for dusting your furniture, especially wood surfaces. It's more simple than some other products since it comes in a can and you simply spray a little bit of it and wipe it off. My problem with the product is the horrible scent, I really can't stand the chemical lemon smell.

    You can find Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent. in any store. It comes in a can and you simply spray a little bit of it on the surface you are cleaning and wipe it off with a rag. It makes dusting fairly quick, which is great for people like me who HATE to dust. The product also protects your wood surfaces WITHOUT leaving them greasy looking and feeling. Be cautious if you get the product on your floor because it will make it SLICK.

    My problem with the product is the gross smell. I can't stand it. It puts me off from using it as much especially since the scent stays on the surface for a while. Chemical lemon scent is not pleasant to have around.

    Not the best option

    Comments about Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent:

    Before our family started the switch to more natural, safer options we used Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent. It did an okay job at polishing our wooden furniture such a our bookshelf, coffee table, dressers, etc. A little bit goes a long way with this stuff though. If you spray too much it gets really greasy and doesn't do as great of a job. Since switching to more natural, safer options, our family has been using Method Wood for Good Polish. It works great, leaves furniture looks shiny and clean. I am more comfortable having and using Method in our home especially with two little people running around. I cannot give this product a super-high rating knowing that it contains harmful chemicals, but if you don't care about natural products it does an okay job at polishing furniture. The lemon scent is a bit strong and would often times give me a head ache. I would recommend not using it too often and even wearing a face mask to protect yourself a bit more. Gloves are always a good idea too.

    Comments about Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent:

    I have to say that I have previously and in the past purchased and used this Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent and found that I really do like this product. This is the perfect product to me for dusting my wood furniture. First of all his Pledge Furniture Polish Lemon Scent left all of my wood furniture with a very nice clean shine. My furniture looked brand new after I dusted with this product. It left behind no residue or smears just pure shine. It cleaned very well and easily got rid of smudges and finger prints. Another good thing about this Pledge product is the lemon scent. It has a very nice and pleasant light scent that made my house smell nice and clean without being too over powering. I really do like the scent. Also another good thing is that the price is pretty reasonable compared with other household cleaners and the price is well worth it. I would certainly recommend this Pledge Furniture Polish to all of my friends and family. I plan to continue using this in the future as it is the best furniture polish I have found.

    Did they change the formula?

    Comments about Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent:

    My family has been using Pledge Furniture Polish before I was born so there was no doubt that I would end up using it one day. I have enjoyed using this product through out the years. It did any excellent job of bringing my old furniture back to life and maintaining my new furniture. I used this product specifically on wood tables and a leather couch to really make them pop. Sadly this furniture no longer does what it used to do for me. I don't know if they have changed their formula, but this product no longer acts as a wax. This product seems to only clean my furniture and no longer gives it a nice finish as well. It still smells the same but it no longer brings my tables back to life. My tables look clean, but dull after wiping them down with Pledge. My black leather couch doesn't shine anymore when I apply this polish. I definitely wouldn't recommend Pledge Furniture Polish because it no longer does what it's advertised to do for furniture.

    An Old Time Favorite

    Comments about Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent:

    Pledge Lemon Scent Furniture Polish is a product that I grew up with and still use today. It is the most pleasant way for me to dust my cherry wood dining room furniture and makes the task fast and easy. It is very convenient to just spray the furniture and wipe it clean with a dust cloth. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to get their dusting done quickly.

    Performance
    Pledge Furniture Polish thoroughly cleans the dust off of my furniture and leaves it nice and shiny. It is quick to use and I find that I have much less dust that becomes airborne, which makes me sneeze and have an allergy attack, than using the more modern dry dusting wipes.

    Scent
    I generally love the scent of lemon. Pledge Lemon Scent Furniture Polish is a lovely lemon scent that is not too strong or chemical smelling. I like that it is a more natural scent rather than most other scented cleaning products that are often too harsh for my taste. If you are a fan of lemon, than you should consider using Pledge in lemon scent.

    Great for cleaning all types of wood

    Comments about Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent:

    My family has always used Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent. The scent is refreshing, but not overwhelming. It doesn't stick around long. The thing I love about Pledge is that it foams really well as you apply it to the surface. It is sort of thick, and leaves a wonderful shine to all wood surfaces. It cleans the surface well, doesn't scratch, and in my opinion, restores the wood a little. It doesn't restore wood if you have big scratches or defects, but small surface scratches. It just gives the wood a shine and makes it looking like new every time you clean. I don't use Pledge for cleaning other types of surfaces such as glass, countertops, etc. So if you're looking for an all purpose cleaner, this is not the product for you. Pledge is one of those products that has been around for years and will continue to thrive because it is the best in its class of cleaning products. Definitely recommended for cleaning and shining up your wood surfaces.

    cleans and polishes to protect wood

    Comments about Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent:

    My mother used Pledge since the 60's and it is still around being used by my family- what does that tell you ? A quality product that stands the test of time is what Pledge is known for .
    Pledge is a great way to dust furniture but it also leaves a slightly waxy coating that protects the woods and gives it a high gloss sheen . It forms a barrier for spills so the wood is protected as well as clean .
    I also use this Pledge on my OLD wood floors to give them a little boost of shine when needed . I just put some old rags under my feet and swoosh around to get the Pledge into the wood .
    I love the scent of this Lemon Pledge - it makes the house smell clean and makes my old furniture look new again . It costs a little more than the bargain brands but I think it is worth it - the spray dusting cleaners from the discount stores don't seem to leave any protective coating on the furniture and are too watery -they leave a dull finish .
    If you have furniture that you want to protect and make look like new again , using Pledge is a good way to go .

    Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent

    Comments about Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent:

    I give this product a very high rating as it's a very good product. I use this on virtually all of my furniture and it leaves it looking shiny are clean. This product has been around for a lot of years and for a very good reason. It works very well. I also use it as a scratch cover for minor scuffs and scratches on the furniture. It works well with the minor scratches best.

    Performance
    It works very well and it lasts a long time. In Nevada where the air is really dry, I found that using this product about once a month works best for me. If you live in a more humid climate, you might need to use it much less often. As always, read the label to check for toxicity as this product contains chemicals which could cause problems for some people.

    Scent
    OK, it's no secret. I've always loved the scent of this product since I was a child but that in no way detracts from the fact that it works. The scent is a fresh lemony smell which is very pleasant.

    I love using Pledge Polish!

    Comments about Pledge Furniture Polish, Lemon Scent:

    You have a winner with Pledge furniture polish. I have been using Pledge for many years and it has always held up. With just a little spray and a rag you can get your house dust free in a decent amount of time. You don't have to keep going over spots because this product works well the first time. It is so simple and easy to use. I also like the lemon scent of this polish. It leaves your house smelling fresh, crisp and clean. It also seems to take longer for dust to build up when I use this for some reason. I will keep on using this furniture polish. It is a must for dusting needs!

    Performance
    This product does a great job with the dusting of furniture and wood. When it is sprayed onto a rag it picks up the dust really easily and prevents dust from building up fast on things that are cleaned with it.

    Scent
    I really like the lemon scent. It isn't overpowering, but leaves a nice and clean scent to the furniture that is polished. Things smell great after being dusted.
