New Use for Pledge Wipes

Recommended Posts

I've been keeping a seal-top package of Pledge Wipes in the pocket behind the passenger's seat for a couple of years. Every week or two, when I'm stuck in traffic on the freeway, or at a long redlight, and otherwise bored, I pull out a Wipe and clean the steering wheel, the gearshift knob, the top of the armrest, the dash, the dash cover, the door panels and such - and the interior of my car always looks fresh and new.

I pulled the bolt with a hole for the coolant recovery tank hose the other day to clean it out, and realized after I was through that I didn't bring rags with me from the house (which is up 90 stairs) and I wanted to go somewhere - and I wanted to clean my hands before I went. I thought - well - Pledge Wipes. They worked great on my hands - and although there wasn't grease on them, they were pretty dirty.

Then, I got busy on the engine's beauty cover, on the air cleaner housing, the headlight and radiator covers - and they all look GREAT.

They both clean and put down a layer of silicone that makes things look new. I highly recommend them!

4 bux worth lasts me 6 months or so.

If you mean Pledge Mult-surface clean and dust wipes, they contain isopropanal (synonym: propyl alcohol), water, and cloth. Reference.

Since you mention a silicon layer: Pledge wipes with orange oil contains Polydimethylsiloxanes (Silicon oil) (3-7%), Naphtha, petroleum, hydrotreated heavy (3-7%). Reference

I often keep a clean micro-fiber towel that I used for cleaning the dash, etc. Then just pop it into the wash if needed. I'll have to try Pledge Wipes with orange oil.

have to be careful with the dash pamel I would say . The sun exposure may dry and or shrink the panel prematurely


Nice, clean, luxury= fine automobile
