I like to use Pledge Soapy Wood Cleaner to wash my wooden kitchen cupboards out and also I sometimes use this to wash my wooden floors and doors. I can say that I am very pleased with the results that this wood cleaner gives.
Pledge Soapy Wood Cleaner can be used on wood services such as wooden floors, cupboards, doors and other wooden surfaces in the house that need a little freshening up and dusting like window sills and skirting boards.
To use this cleaner you use 2 capfuls along with 500ml warm water, I find that this is a good amount to use to clean, as it can make the water too soapy if you use too much of it which can be annoying when cleaning.
Pledge Soapy Wood Cleaner smells lovely and fresh and when I use it to wash my wooden floors, the clean smell of it lingers in the room for a little while, it also leaves the wooden floors look much cleaner and it isn't hard to get results from this wood cleaner, I find that the dusty floors freshen up quite easily with this cleaner and I do not have to scrub too hard to lift dirt either.
This cleaner also works great on my cupboards and doors, again they are easy to wash with this and they smell lovely and fresh when I am finished. When I am washing over the cupboards and doors with this cleaner they look lovely and shiny and it even gets rid of all the sticky finger prints from the kids in the house easily.
You can buy Pledge Soapy Wood Cleaner in most supermarkets for around £2 which is quite reasonable in my opinion as a 500ml bottle lasts quite a long time in our house, I find that you don't have to use much of this to get good results.
Overall I would say this would be my favourite wood cleaner on the market, it smells lovely and is really easy to use. I would definitely recommend this and overall I would give Pledge Soapy Wood Cleaner 5 out of 5 stars.

PLEDGE SOAPY WOOD CLEANER
On the look out for some new floor cleaner I decided to go to Wilkinsons and had a look to see what they had to offer me and their were plenty to choose from. From wilko's own, cif and flash, dettol and many more. I had plenty of wooden floors at my house so I decided to get a floor cleaner designed with wood in mind so it was either Flash wooden floors or Pledge soapy wood cleaner so I chose the Pledge one as it looked good.
The Pledge soapy cleaner comes in a 750ml bottle with the pledge logo on it and it claims to clean and shine wood.
Pledge say to use 2 capfuls with 5 litres (half a bucket full) of warm water, I did the exact same thing and used a Vileda Supermocio soft mop with the power press bucket (2 reviews to come!) and started to clean. I instantly saw a change in the floor as it looked cleaner than ever before and I thought wow!
When I emptied the bucket the floor was a filthy colour so the Pledge must have done its job! The floor looked so clean and shiny and my mum said you could eat your dinner off the floor! But I pointed out you would have to clean the floor again as it was a Sunday!
I went into the kitchen to get myself a glass of water and I slipped and fell over, I made such a thump as it was so slippery the plate rack on the wall fell off! Unless my socks were slippery or it was the Pledge it give the soapy cleaner 3 out of 5 stars and I do not recommend to a friend.
Flash wooden floors here I come...
(review to come lol!)
I have laminate flooring in many rooms and the biggest problem for me is to keep controlling the cleaning.
I have used the floor wipes but I found they were gone to quickly and I wanted some sort of polish or product which would last longer and give better results.
With Pledge I found this bottle which is full of wood cleaner and you add a small amount to boiling water and then you mop around the service of the wood. I used this special wood cleaner which is shaped like a mop but has this long white sleeve cleaner attached so it glides across the floor and it reveals the dirty you have removed.
You get usually a bottle for £3 which can seem expensive and you can tell what it looks like with the see through bottle and you have this pale yellow texture inside. I usually pour three lids full of the product into a mop bucket full of hot water.
I then pour a small amount onto the mop and then glide it through the wood and it does a great job. You see the wood shining through and it seems cleaner within a few glides. One of the biggest challenges with wood cleaner is to leave a smell behind but not be to slippy.
I had used floor polish before and slipped over because the floor was slippery so this product does not leave a slippy surface behind. The floor looks clean and when you see the results of what you have picked up it can be really sick.
I found on a simple floor I hardly step on that the wood had so much dirt and dust I was left astonished. I have used this on clear wood such as a pine texture and even the more darker woods like mahogany which is hard to clean due to not being able to see the filth.
I have found the smell quite nice it is a wood smell like a polish but not the sort to overpower you either. I found the amount needed to clean the floor excellent and it claims on the bottle that this product actually cares for the wood as well.
So as well as cleaning a surface it actually treats the wood as well and for me that is excellent. I think the price could be lower but I have 4 rooms with laminated flooring and once a week I will clean the floor and a bottle will last usually 6-7 weeks.
I have solid wood parquet flooring throughout the whole downstairs of my house and for years struggled to find a suitable product to clean it effectively.
I discovered Pledge Soapy Wood Cleaner a couple of years ago and have used it ever since.
It usually comes in a 500ml bottle about 12 inches high. It's a plastic recyclable bottle with a screw top lid - anyone with young chidren should note that there's no child-proof lock on the lid, so it needs to be kept out of reach of inquisitive little fingers!
The product works by adding 2 capfuls to a 5 litres (about half a bucket) of warm water. You can apply with a sponge or a cloth, but I personally use a well wrung out mop, as the area I have to clean is so large that a mop is the only practical method. Very little scrubbing is required on even the grubbiest areas - my kitchen floor is solid wood parquet and this area always gets particularly grimy and sticky, but it only takes a quick mop with Pledge to get it gleaming.
Any areas that have been cleaned don't require any extra rinsing or buffing. I have found that after mopping it's best to have doors and windows open to allow the floors to dry quickly. This product leaves no streaks or residue and has no particular fragrance, it just leaves your floors looking gleaming.
It's priced at around £2 for a 500ml bottle in most supermarkets, but Home and Bargain also stock it for about £1.70.
I find that we only need to use this product about every 3 weeks, so a bottle lasts several months. If you've got wooden floors, this product is two pounds well spent.
Pledge Soapy Wood Cleaner is an excellent product. A friend recommended it to me and now I wonder how I ever managed without it. A small amount diluted with warm water can be used to clean wooden surfaces of all kinds, even painted, or varnished ones. This product lifts old encrusted dirt which has become ingrained through wax polishing and gives surfaces a brighter, cleaner look. A 500ml bottle lasts for ages and it is amazingly good value for money. Pledge is a name you can trust when it comes to caring for wood, so you don't need to worry. Take care if you are washing antique surfaces or French polish. Test on a small area where you can't see it and let it dry before doing the whole thing. Don't forget to wash your hands well after use, or they will smell strange and feel sticky from the wax.
Having laid a wood laminate floor in my kitchen the next problem was to find an effective cleaner to remove the everyday dust and grime, and after traipsing up and down the aisle of my local supermarket I came across PLEDGE SOAPY WOOD CLEANER manufactured by Johnson wax. To use couldn’t be more simpler just add two capfuls to about 5 litres of warm water and then apply with a sponge or cloth, once the area has been cleaned leave to dry with no rinsing required. It can even be used on skirting boards, kitchen units, wooden doors, windowsills etc. It leaves the area spotlessly clean, that is until the kids come in from the garden, and smelling really fresh.
