Cons: By being disposable, they do create additional waste.
The Bottom Line: I would recommend this product as it will help keep dust from collecting and are simple to use.
I usually give all of my furniture a good polishing every week but I like to do a quick cleaning a few times a week to prevent any dust or dirt build-up. One of the items I use is Pledge Multi-Surface Wipes. This product is distributed by SC Johnson & Son and have a good reputation for having great products. The name made me try the product, however it is the results that keep me using them. As I have a toddler at home, it is critical to keep our house as clean as possible since she is into EVERYTHING.
Pledge Multi-Surface Wipes are pre-moistened disposable wipes that have the ability to clean multiple types of surfaces throughout a household. The surfaces that I most commonly use them for are my wood furniture, computer equipment, pictures, and various knickknacks. All of our wood furniture is finished and is therefore safe to use. The wipes pick up great and on our cherry furniture which typically show dust immediately, it is obvious that the wipes are doing their intended job. Any unfinished or unsealed wood is not recommended as it may damage the surface. I was remarkably surprised at how well it works on our computer monitor and televisions and is does not leave any marks. I have not used them on mirrors however it would probably work as well.
The Pledge Multi-Surface Wipes will not condition a surface as a wood polisher does as it is only intended to pick up dust and dirt. I consider this to be my "maintenance cleaner." I also like to keep a packet in my car to prevent any dust from collecting as well. I will also wipe down my bathroom and kitchen counters as well although there are no antibacterial properties and should not replace those that do.
There are 25 wipes that come in a resealable bag. I have never experienced any problems with the wipes drying out as long as the bag was sealed properly after each use. The wipes have a light scent that will not give your home a chemical smell but rather a fresh aroma. The wipes are a good size and cover a good amount of area. It is nice being able to throw one away after a use as no maintenace is needed however it does create additional waste. The wipes are not intended to go down the drain and will likely create a clog if attempted.
As always, you do want to make sure that small children or pets do not play with the wipes as if it is ingested, it could be dangerous. It is wise to keep these in a place that they cannot reach.
Every so often a new product comes along that causes me to mumble to myself "Gee, I wish I had thought of that". Such is the case with a terrific new product from the S.C. Johnson Company. I was introduced to "Pledge Multi-Surface Wipes" a few months ago and I find myself using them more and more. This is such a neat and simple idea! "Pledge Multi-Surface Wipes" can be utilized in all sorts of ways. When I see dust beginning to accumulate anywhere I simply grab a couple of … more
