Thoughts on Pledge as an interior cleaner?

I remember being appauled when I saw that TV commercial. Can't even imagine I'd go to the trouble to even try it and see what it does. All I remember about Pledge is the nasty residue it left on furniture. I'm pretty sure it would leave something nasty on your dash.

Stick with Meguiar's Interior Detailer. They've been around as long as Pledge, and they do cars!

Why not just stick with the multitude of options designed for car interiors? I don't think Pledge is any better than Meguire's has come up.

Sure, I have used it plenty on auto interiors. Mostly on vinyl seats and door panels on 60's cars. It's better than Armor All, but not as good as some of the stuff out there nowadays.

it's also good for cleaning lexan windows and mildly scratched CD's

Window Tint

The owner of the shop that did my tint (3M brand) said to use pledge to clean and maintain the film.

Wow! I can't imagine. Sure would like to hear back from you if you ever try that.
