Now that I am living on my own, I catch myself leaning towards the Pledge® products when I’m looking for a great clean all over the house.
After moving in to our little townhouse, I knew we were going to need to seriously help our laundry room (really laundry closet), because it was awful. As you’ve seen, I have slowly been redoing rooms and changing hardware here and there. It’s no secret that I am no interior designer, and my home does not look like it came right out of Architectural Digest, but that’s not what’s important to me. More than anything, I just want our house to feel like and represent a (cutely decorated/very organized) livable, home!

Even in our apartment we had an actual laundry room, and I’m really missing it because this laundry closet business is for the birds. Nonetheless, we’re making do with what we have. After carefully assessing my options, I knew we couldn’t tear down walls and make it a full on room (AKA Thomas said no), so I settled for some new paint, a deep cleaning and a few organizational changes.

First and foremost, I had to get cleaning, and I knew exactly the products for the job. Pledge®!

I headed out to my trusty Kroger to grab all of my Pledge® cleaning items. I love being able to grab just about anything when I hit up my Kroger. Food? Got it. Cleaning supplies? Got it! Kroger is the bomb, y’all! I picked up the Pledge® Lemon Wipes and Pledge® Orange Clean Furniture Spray because I knew they’d get the job done and I was on my way.
Isn’t it crazy how quickly we can let the things we love become so dirty? I am honestly ashamed at how fast I let this happen to our little laundry room. But what I’m not the least bit ashamed about is how fast Pledge® whipped my laundry room into shape.
Before I began cleaning anything I unplugged my washer and dryer just to be safe.
It took a little elbow grease, but with a few scrubs of the Pledge® Orange Clean Furniture Spray, my dirty dryer top came completely clean. I was totally channeling my inner little girl and gave everything a second spray just to reminisce and have the fresh citrus scent linger a little longer.
Funny story- our laundry closet is jacked up. Lint flies everywhere when we use the dryer, and it makes a huge mess. And guess what? THERE IS NO FIXING IT. Awesome, right? The joys of living in (technically) a quadplex.
I used the Pledge® Lemon Wipes to give everything else a good wipe down. I mean wood shelves, metal shelves, stainless steel dryer tops, I’m talking everything Pledge®, and I was done! The Pledge® Lemon wipes are so strong, and leave behind a fabulous lemon scent. I had no trouble getting caked on stains or lint off of shelving and, of course, my washer and dryer.

You know that feeling you get when you start doing something you love? Well that’s me with the Pledge® Lemon wipes… I seriously used them all over my house. I took them upstairs, cleaned the railing in our loft, wiped down my bathroom counters (ew), cleaned off the window sills and blinds… You guys, there aren't many surfaces that these Pledge® Lemon wipes can’t handle! I love having a home that’s clean, and I love taking care of cleaning all of the items I love with Pledge®.
While, it may not be the laundry room you see in the interior design magazines, it is definitely an improvement for me. It’s easy to love a space that looks this great when it was that easy to keep it clean! Pledge® helps me keep my special items and places around the house that are important to me clean and protected!

  4. Putting the detergent in dispensers is so smart! We totally need to do that because the Tide detergent jugs are so ugly.
