I have been searching for the perfect floor cleaner for our kitchen floor. What I am looking for is something that cleans and helps keep it shiny. I have used the homemade mixture for cleaning - it cleans super well - it just doesn't give any shine to my floor. I like it to shine.
I prepped my floor by sweeping really well. Then I used the Pledge. It says to spray directly on the floor and mop it up. No rinsing required. When I was done it took maybe 20 minutes to completely dry. Although some areas it took 30 minutes.
I noticed right away that the floor was easy to clean. I didn't have to let things soak and sit. I could just spray and mop it up. This is huge for me. I have 7 children 12 and under. Trust me . . . spills happen. Pledge worked really well at cleaning the floor and it was really easy peasy to just mop and go.
While it was drying my husband and I were both excited at how shiny it seemed to be leaving the floor. When it was completely dry it wasn't as 'shiny' as I hoped. It did make a difference and there is a slight sheen to the floor but, it didn't make a dramatic shine that I was so hoping for.
I definitely recommend this product to those needing a floor care product (wood, tile, linoleum) that makes floor care easy and makes your floors look remarkably clean! Pledge Floor cleaner definitely did this. It was easy to use and I didn't have to scrub at the worse spots. I just let it sit while I did another area (for maybe 30 seconds) and it mopped right up.
The only drawback is that it doesn't leave the floor spectacularly shiny. Now, this could be because my floor has been stripped of all shine and it might take a few uses to 'put the shine' back in. So, I will continue to use it and I will update you if that is what it needed. I am hoping because I really liked the ability it had to clean.
It worked well on tile floors and also on wood floors. I tested them all. I recommend this to those looking for an easy way to keep the floor clean!
Make it a great one!
