      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      love it!

      I don't mind dusting/ any cleaning to be honest. In fact I do quite enjoy it haha! I like to keep on top of polishing my wooden furniture. Such as my dining table, coffee table fire surrounding and banister. I would probably say I use this around once a week. The Pledge polish gives a really good shine afterwards and smells divine. I always feel like the item I have polished when using Pledge looks so clean and 'new'.

      Packaging
      The polish comes in a fairly tall spray can, the fact it is a spray nozzle means it easy to apply onto either my duster or directly onto the furniture I am polishing.
      The can is blue, which I think looks quite appealing compared to some of the polishes that are available now that seem to always look quite dull. It doesn't stand out nicely in shops.


      The polish
      The polish can be used on multi surfaces such as glass, wood and metal. Which comes in handy when cleaning mirrors and other items in the house that get mucky/dusty.
      A little goes a long way so the can ideally last you a good few months maybe even longer if you don't polish often.
      The polish comes in a 300ml can which is an ideal size, I find too small cans pointless as they run out before you use them and the bigger ones can be too heavy. So 300ml is a perfect size.

      The price of the polish is usually £1.00. Be careful though because in a lot of places I have seen it for a lot more. So I recommend places like Home bargains where it never seems to be anymore than a quid.

      My thoughts
      I have been surprised at how affective this product is. It smells lovely and really cleans my glass, wood and metal items in my home without leaving streaks. It is such an effortless item, you don't have to put much work into using it like some products where you have to really work the product in so it doesn't leave a streak.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Nice polish which goes a long way.

        I have quite a lot of wooden furniture around my home. I have wooden tables which I like to polish around every couple of weeks or so. I use this polish to give it a good clean and to keep it looking good. I like a good polish that helps to give it a good shine.

        The polish I am reviewing is the Dust and Protect wood one. The polish is housed in a tall cannister which has an inverted nozzle. I do like the inverted ones because then I don't find I lose the top. It is really easy to press the nozzle to release the polish too, it doesn't drip from the can, which I also like so it doesn't make a mess on my furniture.

        It has a really nice smell of polish, it is a pleasant smell and I like it a lot. It has a really nice fine mist, I always spray a small amount onto a duster and work it gently into the surface of my furniture. I don't like to directly spray it onto the wood because I find it is far too much and I can work it into the furniture much better spraying onto the duster. I find it doesn't streak as much used this way.

        Only a small amount is needed on the duster, it is a very good quality so not a lot is needed. I just gently wipe over the wood at first and then just rub a little harder. It doesn't take much time to dry and just leaves the wood looking nice and shiny.

        It gives my table a really good shine, especially when the sun shines into the room it is in, it conditions the wood as much as a polish can for wood. It isn't necessary to use it daily or even weekly because the dust that falls onto the wood can just be dusted away daily or weekly, depending how often you dust. We always dust daily because we like to keep the wooden furniture looking nice, especially when the light shines onto it and the dust can be seen.

        This polish gives a natural finish on the wood, it does remove any marks that are on the furniture without spoiling the wood. Using too much polish can ruin wooden furniture but this one is a good one and meets my expectations.

        The can must be kept away from direct sun, it does fit into a cupboard and nice and slim.

        I recommend this polish if you are looking for a more natural shine for your wooden furniture, it hasn't ruined mine and just left it with a nice natural shine. It is one I do like quite a lot. The quality is good and excellent value for the money. This is one of my favourite polish products.

        I paid around £1.30 for a 300ml can. It does last ages because only a little is needed.

        The can is also recyclable.

        I rate it 5 stars.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A good household polish that works really well

          Now there is a saying in my house, "When you can't see your face in the mirror it's time to clean"! I wish I was one of these modern men, who can clean and put things back where they belong, but I guess I am the type to be nagged and well I enjoy it just a little. My partner is quite particular about what she uses in our house as she suffers from various allergies and sensitivities and she found that whilst using some of the other (cheaper) polishes she had some bad reactions to them but she seem ok with Pledge, sometimes the more expensive option is better.

          So back to Pledge, I have found you can pick them up for around the £1.30 mark or on offer for 2 for £2. I have tried other polishes and have found that they don't have that "just polished" feel for as long as Pledge does or they leave nasty looking streaks on the shiny topped surfaces or on glass.

          Pledge is suitable for use on wood but not unsealed wood and glass (both windows and on mirrors) but I wouldn't advise using it on silverware as it may tarnish or if plated my remove it. I have personally used it on my TV screen and laptop screen and it has done no harm but remember never spray the surface always spray the cloth and then use.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A decent enough polish

          Unfortunately dusting is one of the things you have do in a home. If there was a way to live dusting free; I'd be doing it! I need a reliable product that smells good and attracts the dust. I don't want to just spread the dust around for it to settle in exactly the same place!
          I have been using pledge for a number of years so feel qualified enough to review it!

          *Price*

          Pledge is available at most supermarkets and comes in a 300ml container. It costs around £1.00 to £1.60 depending on what offer is on. I think this is fairly good value.

          *Description*

          Pledge comes in varying styles; with beeswax, multi-purpose or regular. I usually buy the original one. This comes in an aerosol tin with a press down plastic top to squirt the liquid polish out. It is a fairly big surface so it is comfortable to depress and disperse. The tin is made of metal and does rust if left in a damp place (talking from experience.) The plastic lid is not as sturdy as the tin and if dropped does fall off, you can easily get it back on but sometimes when you push it back on, you squirt some of the polish out; this can get quite messy.

          The actual polish comes out as a liquid spray and depending how close you are to your subject depends on the sort of spray you get. Far away will provide little droplets over a large area and closer you get a foamy more concentrated dispersal.
          The scent of the product is fresh and does make the house smell clean. Although, it does last very long.

          *Ingredients*

          1. Naphtha, petroleum, light alkylate 5%-10% or (isoparaffinic hydrocarbon solvent) In other words these are the ingredients that will break down and remove the smears, finger or skin tissue oils.
          2. Polydimethylsiloxanes (Silicon oil) 5%-10%
          3. Water 70%-85%
          4. Butane1% -5%
          5. Isobutane1% - 5%
          6. Propane1% - 5%

          *Directions*

          Full instructions are on the pack of the bottle but they are simple enough to follow; The direction for use are shake well and hold aerosol can upright and spray around six inches from surface or straight onto cloth.

          *My experience*

          I like pledge and regularly choose it for my polishing needs. I like the smell of it and it is really easy to use. I
          find that it is great for attracting the dust when I use it with my micro fibre cloth. This sort of cloth takes hold of the dust and locks it away. I have used a regular duster and after a day, the house looked like it needed doing again! When I use the other cloth, I can happy go a week and it doesn't need doing. I guess the main point to take from is that the product works best when you use a good cloth with it.
          I use the polish on all sorts of surfaces and it goes a good job. I wish the lid would stay on better as it does get pretty annoying having to pick it up all the time! Nevertheless, I still continue to buy the product and can't complain when it costs a pound.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          great

          When cleaning I tend to stick to the same products for a long time as I work out which is the most efficient and then don't like to try anything else but with polish I find that I do vary more and try a variety. The polish that I am using at the moment is this one; Pledge Clean and Dust Original. It certainly seems to be doing the job well and I am very impressed with it so far.

          The polish

          Like any other polish this one comes in a tall aerosol can which is quite wide. When it's completely full I do find it is quite heavy and awkward to hold due to it's width but it isn't usually too much of a problem. The can is blue and quite plain really, it's not trying to dazzle you with facts and brightness instead it just seems to be quietly confident.

          To dispense the polish you can to press down on the button at the top which then will spray the polish out of the little opening and onto your surface. When you press the button the spray comes out quite slowly and in a smell spray- it isn't a wide spray which will cover lots of area which is a good thing as it means that it doesn't tend to spray out onto unwanted areas. You do not have to press the button very hard so it is easy to use.

          The smell isn't a distinct one, instead it is just rather a 'fresh' smelling polish with nothing specific about it which I like as I don't like my house to smell of oranges or blossom or any other typical cleaning product smell. When you have finished polishing the smell does linger for a good couple of hours so if you are using this do check first whether you can tolerate it's scent as it will hang around in your room for a while. I like that the scent lingers as it makes my house smell clean and as though I have been busy cleaning!

          I spray this directly to the surface that I want to dust and then use my duster to wipe the dust away. I find that I do need to use a good amount of this else it doesn't pick up all the dust and just tends to move it across the surface so you will need to spray a decent amount to ensure that the duster is moist upon contact.
          After I have finished dusting I am always pleased to see that you can tell the surfaces in my house look nicely cleaned. There are no marks left where the dust has been moved to or anything like with some polishes that just tend to clump the dust together and deposit it. It does make surfaces look more shiny and this effect seems to last for a good week or so.

          Conclusion

          This polish is one which doesn't look particularly special on the shelf as it is rather plain in design but that doesn't matter to me as it is what is inside that counts and that is very good quality.

          It is easy to use and the spray is well concentrated so that it doesn't spray out in a wide burst which would cover unwanted areas. I find that you do need to use quite a bit to ensure that you make the most of this product but that the effects of doing so are very positive.

          The smell isn't offensive but it does linger for quite some time afterwards.

          I personally rate this polish, it seems to make my furniture shine nicely and it does do the job it is supposed to do so it gets a thumbs up from me and 5 stars!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Nice polish, does the job

            For some reason I am not quite sure of furniture polish is one thing that I haven't yet tried in a cheaper brand and since moving out of home 6 years ago I have always bought pledge. Pledge can be purchased in every supermarket I have ever been in and sells for between £1 - £1.50 for 300ml although I always make sure I stock up if I see a special off, pledge comes in numerous types beeswax, wood and multi surface and comes in wipe form aswell as aerosol.

            I personally use the dust and protect wood version as the majority of what I polish is wood and even the odd thing that isn't wood like the TV comes up great with it too. Pledge comes in an aerosol tin with a press down top to dispense, the tin is made of quite strong metal as I have dropped these tins numerous times and they don't seem to dent. Pledge is made by SC Johnson and the logo for which is in the bottom right of the tin along with the claim that this is "the only air propelled furniture cleaner and reduce environmental impact" on the top of the tin. Personally I am not in position to pay extra for things that are particularly good for the environment but will buy a product if it is the same price.

            On the rear of the tin there are a number of tins, "cleans and protects from daily wear and tear, keeps your home looking less dusty, protects from everyday watermarks rings and spills, suitable for use on all sealed wood and gives your home a fresh just polished fragrance" The direction for use are shake well and hold aerosol can upright and spray around six inches from surface or straight onto cloth.

            The product is very easy to use, point and spray couldn't be much simpler, I personally spray onto a clean cloth as I find I get fewer streaks than if I spray direct onto the furniture. The polish does seem to collect all the dust and does smell "freshly polished" as promised, my only thing with it is that the smell only lasts an hour or so. I find that a tin of the polish lasts me about 2 months and I polish once a week and I also find it useful if you need to pretend you have done the housework instead of spending all day on dooyoo to spray into the centre of the room for that freshly polished scent!!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A POLISH THAT IS AVERAGE

            A product I have recently tried out is the Pledge furniture polish and this is my review.

            I normally buy a different brand of furniture polish but when I was in my local Hardware shop I noticed that the pledge was on sale and I knew that I needed a new can of polish at home. I know that Pledge polish is on sale in larger shops such as Tesco and Asda as well as smaller local stores.

            I paid 80 pence for the large tin of polish which I thought was a good price especially cos it is quite a premium brand. The canister is made of metal and has an aerosol spray at the top where the spray comes from. There is a plastic nozzle at the top of the can to let you spray the polish.

            The fragrance of my spray is 'original' which doesn't smell of much except furniture polish! It is a very chemical smell and it catches my throat I do not like using the spray much because of this. I find this problem with all furniture polish though not just his brand. I think that Pledge furniture polish does come in other variety of smell such as lemon and maybe these would be a nicer smell than the original one.

            When I am using the Pledge spray I do not need to use to much which is good as the can will last me quite a long time. I do not have that much wooden furniture in my house anyway but I do have some small tables that I like to polish at least once a week and I think the Pledge spray does a good job on these. If I spray to much of the Pledge onto my duster it leaves a big wet mess so I think less is sometimes more with a can of polish really.

            The polish is easy to use and it goes onto the wood easily when used with a duster. I like to use a yellow duster as it gives the wood a nice shine when used with a can of polish like the Pledge. After using the Pledge spray the smell of the polish is easy to notice in my house but if you don't mind the smell then I suppose that wouldn't bother you to much.

            The Pledge spray works as good as any other spray I would usually buy and that includes 'basic' brands from supermarkets so I wouldn't really go out of my way to buy this brand especially. I thought that it worked well and did what it said on the tin but then again other more basic tins of polish do that to and they cost under 50 pence at times!

            The main down side when using the Pledge polish was the horrible smell which I thought was far to chemical smelling and it really caught my throat when I was spraying the polish even though I did not have to use much on my furniture. I think it is about high time somebody invented a fragrance free furniture polish to give us the choice of whether we want a smelly polish or not!

            I would suggest giving the Pledge furniture polish a try out but don't expect to be blown away by the results as I would say it only performs the same as more average brands of polish. I would buy it again but probably only if it is on offer cos I thought it worked as well as most of the other brands I have used before and this includes basic brands!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A great cleaning product for all your furniture!

            Having just done a bit of spring cleaning, I am sitting here surrounded by the lovely scent of Pledge furniture polish. It's a product I always use when cleaning for everything wooden. Everything from that wooden bookshelf to tables, chairs, doors and desks can be done with this brilliant cleaner. It's not really necessary to use such a product when dusting but this helps to gather together the dust and leave your wood shining and smelling brilliant, so in that respect it is well worth it.

            Another positive is the price - at £1.32 for either the Pledge Clean & Dust Jasmine variety or Pledge Dust & Protect Wood variety, the 300ml can will go a long way. I have used the dust and protect wood version just now and it was lovely to use. I have yet to try the jasmine one but I'm sure it works very well and smells lovely.

            This one I have used has a fantastic aroma - very fresh and it has a bit of zing to it. The great thing about using it, is that it fills up the whole room with the smell once you've used it. Along with some clean windows and floors, you'll feel like you are in a hotel, only with a lovely ambience about the place helped by the wonderful smell.

            The can has a spray button on the top. It's either a brown or light purple one depending on the variety. The Pledge logo is across the front going up diagonally. The spray button is of a good size and works well. The spray actually comes out in a circular fashion, which you can tell if you hold it still and spray it on a desk. This is actually pretty good as it gives a really wide layer of the spray onto a desk for example where you are using it.

            It's best to use this product with a proper duster and nothing else. This way you will be able to collect all the dust and it seems to clean very well in conjunction with a duster. It can rid of small marks on desks or sticky areas caused by drinks for example. It's not the kind of product to get through tough stains however. It cleans the desk pretty well and leaves it literally shining. It's great on all wood (not that I'm an expert) but most furniture will be shining after using this on it - it's very safe to use too and the brown one actually helps to protect your wood.

            This is the one product to use on all your wooden furniture when cleaning. Other products may damage it, but this one leaves it shining and smelling wonderful whilst protecting the wood. It's not expensive and the 300ml can lasts a long time if you clean once a week depending on how much furniture you have. I enjoy using it as it's easy to use and smells wonderful.

            Thanks for reading!

            :)

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              pretty good product for dusting

              Our family was raised on dusting and polishing. It was a household activity that was performed in a ritualistic fashion every Saturday morning. Myself and my brother would be handed a bottle of Pledge and a yellow duster and instructed which rooms we were on duty to clean. This cleaning became a staple part of my routine and has stayed with me into adulthood...so much so that I am always dusting.

              I still use Pledge. A trusty metal cannister with foamy white goodness inside. You do not question the ingredients of course, you just accept that what's inside will smell fresh and pick up traces of dust. Dust is one of life's more pointless creations, like wasps and Paris Hilton. It seems to gather in my house in hard to reach corners and also on ceilings. Luckily, a faithful yellow duster and some of this stuff does the job.

              I usually spray directly onto the surface then wipe away straight way with the duster, but you can apply this to a duster or rag and do the same job. The lemon pledge is my favourite as it smells of summer and leaves that tingly zesty feeling in the air. Granted, it sometimes makes my nose tingle and provokes a sneeze, but this always happens when I dust.

              The viscosity of the Pledge allows you to collect most household dust readily. I have used Pledge on wood, enamel, plastic and even windows and it performs well, though on glass it can smear a little. It is less successful if you use it on the hob or on very shiny surfaces, as it can leave streaks.

              My bottle usually lasts for a month or two and for about one to one pound fifty a bottle, I see it as good value. It works, it collects dust and it smells good. I shall continue to use Pledge for household chores, though I do also rate Mr Sheen. It is a tough call which peforms better, so I mix and match.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Super cleanliness.

              Normally with my cleaning products I vary them, depending on special offers and price reductions across supermarkets. However, there is one product which I never vary, never change, and have never questioned this, and that is the Pledge furniture polish spray. I was quite reassured in my judgement when I came on here and saw it had a lot of other five star ratings also.

              Pledge Furniture polish comes in a tall cylindrical metal tin with an aerosol spray head, which is one of the worse things for the environment, but in this day and age there are places you can dispose of them for more environmentally friendly methods. Contact your local council for details as I have found this varies greatly depending on the local area you live in.

              I always buy the natural one, even though there are some other flavours (I'm not sure flavours is the right word, scents, maybe!) I know there is a citrus type one, but I haven't tried it. By far the biggest seller is the natural one, which you will find in most supermarkets and corner shops, even if the whole range isn't stocked. The natural one smells a bit like beeswax, it is quite a natural outdoorsy smell and would be right at home in the woods!

              There is a trick to using Pledge. The best way to do so is to spray from about half a foot away, any closer and it does not dispearse as evenly and you will end up with clumps off too concentrated material. The Pledge itself as a thick waxy liquid, which is why it needs the aerosole to spread the particles and dispearse it. Less is more with the Pledge, as if you apply to much it is hard to get it polished up and dry and shiney and you end up with a soggy duster. Excuse me if this is patronising, but once you spray the Pledge the idea is to then 'polish it up' by rubbing with a lindt free cloth, more commonly known as a duster.

              I find pledge best on glass, electrical appliances, black plastic, marble and finished wood. Is is best to check before you use it to check it is OK with that surface as you can ruin certain things, I learnt the hard way after using it on unstained wood!

              I do not like a dirty home, take great pride in my home and work hard to keep it nice and clean and most of all smelling nice and fresh and I use polish only for some of my tables that are made of wood and I buy this polish for those areas on a regular basis but only around once a month so I do not ruin them.

              My grandma left me a table around 30 years ago when she died and I have it in my hallway and it is made of wood but not a very old wood like some old furniture and it is quite a nice table and quite modern after all these years and I like to keep it nice and clean and this polish keeps it that way without ruining it as it is a keep sake for me for my memories of my grandma and so I like to take care of it always.

              This polish is a very good quality one and a nice branded one and has been around for many years and although I have tried other brands and other lower ones too, but I always go back to this one as I love it so much.

              It comes in a variety of fragrances but I like the original one the best of them all as I like the smell of it and I also like the Lavender one too but this one is my favourite.

              I pay around £1 usually for a 300ml can from my local shop when it is on special offer usually and it cleans all the dirty and grime from my table and it leaves it looking nice and shiny and the smell during and after using it smells gorgeous, I love the smell of polish as it makes me feel it is doing the work perfectly and the results are very good indeed.

              I tend to hold the can around 18 inches from the surface and just spray gently onto the surface and it leaves a slight mist that way and if I spray closer it tends to have a foaming effect and I do not like it that way, the mist is much better for me to just gently rub into the surface with a duster and the polish is easy to blend in.

              The can lasts me a very long time and it is a very good quality polish and I highly recommend it for anyone to give it a try as I think it is the best one on the market and the results speak for themselves and I am very happy with it and will continue to keep buying it for the good price and quality this polish gives and my table has kept very well using this one and it is my favourite of all the polishes on the market.

              I give it 5 stars.

                just point, spray and wipe

                Pledge Furniture Polish has been the choice of polish in our family for years. Its easy to use, has that traditional polish smell and works!

                There are three fragrances of Pledge polish, Natural, Lemon and Outdoor - now the only one I have used is the original as I prefer the traditional smell of beeswax. I'm not sure that wood smelling of lemon or the outdoor is right really!

                The packaging - I like the traditional aerosol can and the original polish - a tall slim tin in browns with a brown lid and depicting a swathe of wood having been polished.

                Now to ease of use;- just point and spray and wipe with a soft cloth. I still use the aerosol can, so it is just a case of pressing the button on the top, making sure that the nozzle hole is pointing away from you. the dust comes away with one wipe and I find you then need to buff the furniture up to get a really good shine. - its no good using a J-cloth - it has to be a proper soft duster type cloth - otherwise you can't get the shine. Don't use too much though - I left my niece to polish my mums desk and she used nearly the whole tin because it was such fun spraying it and the soft cloth could be rung out!

                As too price - well it depends where you get it from but it is around £3 per can and can be found in all supermarkets.

                There are own brands on the market, in the same type of packaging but they are not a substitute for the original Pledge.

                All in all a quick and easy way to keep surfaces looking clean and sparkly.

                A good value polish

                Pledge Furniture Polish is a major household brand of polish, that pretty much everyone has at least seen on the shelves of their local supermarket, if they have not already used it themselves. I remember Pledge from when I was younger, as my Mum always had a can of it in the cleaning cupboard, and it pretty much still smells the same as what I can remember from when I was younger.

                Pledge Furniture Polish now comes in quite a variety of scents and styles, with special cans for specific surfaces and wood types. I currently use the "original" scented polish, but there is many other scents now, including Lemon and Lavander ones.

                I find the polish works really well, and I use it every time I do the dusting and polishing in the house. It brings up all the wood items in my house really well, removing all dust and dirt and making the shine perfect. Really easy to use, just spray on the surface, and wipe off with a clean dusting cloth, couldn't be more simple! A little goes a long way with this polish, so it does seem to last forever, and I am have never had any asthma problems with this product, nor has anyone else in my family.

                Pledge Furniture Polish is available in most major supermarkets, at usually around £3 a can. This price is pretty good, as these do last for a good couple of months, even with heavy useage, as I said before a little goes a long way with this product, making it great quality and value for money.

                I recommend that you give this Pledge Furniture Polish a try, as it is a great polish, and I can not find any fault with it what so ever. 5 out of 5 from me.

                Well worth trying

                Pledge Furniture Polish


                I really wish that the housework would do itself, there is something positively depressing about having to spend your day off cleaning and dusting! Having said that, I do like things to be clean and unfortunately, nobody is going to do it for me (unless of course, I bully Mr Siamese into it) so it is a necessary evil which I try to make as quick and easy as possible.

                We have quite a lot of wooden furniture in the living room so like to use a polish and cloth on it a couple of times a week, which helps to keep it clean and shining. Although I don't like cleaning, I do like that freshly polished smell and this product leaves surfaces smelling good too.

                The polish comes in 250ml tins and I paid £1.35 for mine the last time I shopped. It can be found in most supermarkets. I like the Springtime fragrance which comes in a light brown can with a plastic lid.

                The polish works really well on wooden furniture, glass and also TVs, stereos etc. You don't need to use much each time and like I mentioned, it does leave the room smelling fresh and fragrant. To use, simply hold the tin around six inches from the surface and spray, then wipe with a clean cloth.

                The product doesn't leave smears or marks on surfaces either, and helps to leave them clean and protected. At the end of the day, it is furniture polish and there isn't that much more to say about it. All you really need to know is that it does exactly what it says on the tin, works really well and smells fab too! If you haven't tried this one yet then it is definitely worth giving it a shot to see what you think!

                Disadvantages

                A great polish with a multitude of uses!

                I love my bedroom and not only do I like it tidy and organised I love it to be clean of course as well as it's my sanctury after all.

                I spend alot of money on cleaning products and I do have a lot of wooden furniture in my bedroom so I do like to give it a bit of a buff up a couple of times a week!

                The Packaging:

                Well I am reviewing the Pledge Furniture Polish in the Springtime fragrance. My can is cylinder and it's 250ml in size with an integrated aerosol sprayer to the top of it and it's brown in colour. On the front I'm told it is Pledge 'Springtime' Furniture Polish 'Cares for all furniture' and that it's a Johnson product. Other information on the can includes being told a bit about the product and directions for use are given, cautions are listed, the size is stated and contact details for Johnsons are given. It's a nice enough easy to grab and use can and it's informative enough too.

                A Bit About The Product According To The Can:

                The air propelled Pledge aerosol from SC-Johnson Wax provides the same performance as a conventional aerosol whilst respecting the environment.

                New improved protection from everyday watermarks, rings and spills.

                Pledge provides your furniture with superior care and protection, ensuring a beautiful natural finish on all surfaces, especially wood. Pledge's unique formula contains a blend of waxes and conditioners which easily removes dust and dirt to clean, care and protect from daily wear and tear.

                Pledge Springtime gives your home a clean and fresh feel. Suitable for use on all sealed wooden surfaces. Also use on tv/hifi/video, glass, marble, ceramics and enamel finishes. Not suitable for use on unsealed wood. For use on antique furniture please consult a furniture specialist.

                Directions For Use:

                Shake well. Hold can upright and spray about 6 inches from surface. For best results polish immediately with a soft, clean cloth. For all small items. Tv/hifi/video and hard to reach places, spray onto cloth then dust as usual . Do not use on floors or the inner surfaces of baths as this could make them slippery.

                Me Using It:

                Well I love this cleaning product! Simple to use, I simply use it as directed and according to the instructions given on the can of course.

                For large surfaces, and any of them I spray a light spritz of the polish to where I want to clean and it comes out of the can very evenly indeed and a little white and frothy in it's appearance. The smell of this I really did like as well and found it to be really light, natural and a bit floral but it was really, really very pleasant. Marks and grime get lifted off surfaces very easily with little rubbing or anything and wood in particular really does comes up gleaming.

                I have also used this on plastic areas and glass and mirrors and it really isn't a greasy or easily smearing product at all and it takes little effort on my part to clean areas which is me very happy I can tell you!

                The fragrance also lingers for a good couple of hours after I've had a clean with it which really does add to the already clean feeling achieved with this.

                Also as promised on the can it's great to spray onto a cloth and gently rub over things and I used this on my upvc double glazing which is the plastic round my windows of course and very prone to streaking and smearing. However again this is brilliant and removed grime with ease.

                Verdict:

                I think this is a really great polish to clean up with and it's really simple to use and gives excellent results and fragrance. Not only do I find that this is great at removing marks just done it really does help ingrained stains rather alot and the shine on my furniture is just great!

                I will definitely buy this time and time again, it makes my life easier for sure!

                I paid £1.30 for my can and this is available in lots of different fragrance choices and it is available in many different shops etc.
