Remember a few weeks ago how I shared that I was chosen to participate in the Pledge-to-Pledge Challenge? Within days of finding out I was chosen as a Pledge Ambassador, I was sent a sampling of products from the Pledge FloorCare hardwood cleaning product line.  Not familiar with this line of wood care products from Pledge?  Here is more information about the different products available for purchase at your favorite local retailer:




Once the weekend came, I couldn't wait to put the different Pledge wood floor cleaner products to the test.  Luckily, my home is a custom built post and beam house, which means it is all wood from floor to ceiling.  So, there was not a lack of wood to clean.  :-)  Because we have hard wood floors throughout, I need to make a point to stay on top of cleaning them, or they start to wear, peel, and show water marks, etc.  Unfortunately, the wood cleaning produts I had been using weren't meeting my expectations, so these samples from Pledge came at a great time, as I was looking to make a switch.

Now, you have probably heard of or used Pledge cleaning products, but have you seen the above Pledge FloorCare products for sale at your favorite local retailer.  If it wasn't for this fun "Pledge-to-Pledge Challenge, I don't think I would have learned about them.  But, I am so glad that I did, as my wood floors have never looked cleaner.  Like I said, I haven't been happy with the expensive eco-friendly wood floor cleaners I had been using recently, as they have been leaving marks, a film that makes the wood look faded and dull, or simply doesn't get the wood clean.  With two toddlers on the go, and who love to run outside and trek in mud, leaves, etc., I find myself cleaning the wood floors on a daily basis -- sometimes even two times a day if a sippy cup spills, after a messy meal, or even after an impromptu arts and crafts session.  So, as a busy mom, I need to be able to grab the proper cleaning products to clean up the mess fast, without having to worry about needing to go over the wood a few times to get clean, or to get on my hands and knees and towel dry the floor to prevent streaks/marks.  

I tried out the Pledge FloorCare product line by first doing a small spot check.  I didn't want to squirt this stuff all over my wide plank wood floors and have it strip it, stain the wood, or damage it in some way. With a mop in hand, I couldn't get over how clean that one little spot got, and how the floor sparkled.  I don't think in the 7 years we have lived here, that my floors have ever sparkled this much.  I am guessing if I really wanted to, I could eat of the floor, like they say. :-)  But, I think I will skip that part. :-)

Even the girls noticed how clean the floors were, by pointing to the sparkling wood floor boards and saying, "Look  Mom.  The floor is so clean, it sparkled."  I moved throughout the three levels of living space, trying out the four different Pledge FloorCare products, and each and every time I was done and I stepped back to take a look, I was so impressed.  Just look at the before and after photos I took, as I really wanted to show you how well these FloorCare products from Pledge really work. 

Each of the photos below show a before (left hand side) and after (right hand side).  You will see how the floors looked dull before, but shine after using Pledge FloorCare wood cleaner and finisher on them.





My girls loved getting the floors dirty, just so that they could help me mop up the floors.  They, too, liked to see the floors shine.  In the beginning, i would try to using the "Squirt and Mop" product, and then would wait 10-15 minutes for the floors to dry before following up with the Pledge FloorCare finisher, which ended up being my favorite product.  Who knew that you should use a wood finisher when cleaning and tending to your wood floors.  


I can finally say bye bye to my old floor cleanings, and will continue to use and re-stock on Pledge Floorcare products from now on.  And, whenever family and friends come to visit and notice the floor all sparkly and clean, can't help but rave about Pledge and my personal experience over the past few weeks trying out their wood cleaning products.  I highly recommend them to anyone who has hardwood floors, and it looking to get a deep down clean, that will leave your floors looking buffed and brand new.  Just be prepared to be wowed, when you see the floors sparkling.  Don't forget to take before and after photos like I did, so that you can show others, and really see for yourself at how well Pledge FloorCare products worked.  Your hardwood floors will go from dull to amazing after just the first use. So, what are you waiting for?  Make sure you add Pledge FloorCare wood cleaning products to your shopping list, and pick up the next time you visit your local retailing.
