Default Lemon Pledge...

Ok before you bash me to pieces, give it a try. I have a 09 Ultra Harley and picked up this tip from a Harley thread. First and for most you have to clean your ride first. Wash it. Then make sure you have it dried off. Then just spray Pledge on and wipe off with a microfiber cloth. It may leave a small amount of film if your microfiber cloth is wet from Pledge. All you have to do is take a dry microfiber cloth and wipe of the film. I have a Sunburst Orange Pearl 09 and it looks sweet. You can use it on every part of your ride, windows, trim, chrome, everything. And if you live in the country like I do, if it's a little dusty you can spruce it up with a microfiber and a little Pledge. Hey give it a try, and it smells good to boot.

Never used it as a wax, per se, but I do use it to dust the dash and the interior. Definitely like the way that smells!

What about using it in leather? I have heard to us it on seats but am afraid of it possibly drying them out.

I haven't used it, so I won't comment on the performance of it, but it does seem odd to use it on painted surfaces when Pledge does not make any statements regarding it being safe on paint.

With that said, pledge has cleaning properties, so applying it to your paint would inherently strip anything on it, right? So waxing, then using pledge would be equitable to wasting time, money, and wax. I will have to try it myself before I make assumptions, but I have a hard time believing pledge works better than a dedicated detail spray you can buy for about 50 cents a quart elsewhere.

Brake fluid shines the shit out of rubber but I'm sure not going to use it. I've seen the long term results.

I purchased a 2008 Polaris RZR. In the DVD that came with it.It actually recommends using Pledge to wax it. Makes her shine every time!

I've used it only on the interior with good results. I'll have to give it a try on the paint.
