When it comes to cleaning and caring for your home it can be an exhausting, full time task, especially if you’re a single parent like me, who doesn't really have much help in that area. I'm pretty good at staying on top of day-to-day chores like laundry, dishes, bathrooms, etc., but I don't deep clean as much as I'd like. I'd love to have my entire house deep cleaned once or twice a month, but as a single parent time doesn't always allow.

This summer I put my foot down and decided I needed to set a few days aside to tackle my entire house and make time for the much needed deep clean, and boy am I glad I did! Deep cleaning your home can take a few days. I suggest taking on one room at a time and be sure to have your favorite cleaning products handy as well! I've started using Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner with Glade® Rainshower® and Pledge® Lemon Wipes that I purchased at Kroger, and they have been amazing around the house so far!


Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner with Glade® Rainshower® makes deep cleaning a breeze. It does the work of a variety of household cleaning products. This all-purpose cleaner contains a worry-free formula that cleans up smudges and messes while safely leaving the finish alone. Did you know it can be used on wood, laminate, stainless steel, leather, marble, granite, plastic, porcelain, glass, and electronics - that's a pretty impressive list if you ask me! Along with removing dust, Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner with Glade® Rainshower® removes up to 90% of the allergens found in dust.

With the Pledge® Lemon Wipes you have the power of Pledge® in the palm of your hand. These cleaning wipes are a surprisingly versatile household cleaning product! You can use Pledge® Lemon Wipes to clean up dust, dirt, and messes. They quickly clean, condition and protect while leaving behind the fresh lemon Pledge® scent. They also feature Allergen Trappers® to remove dust and up to 90% of the allergens found in dust.


The first step to deep cleaning is to de-clutter. You can go room-by-room, shelf-by-shelf, or whatever is easiest for you. I dislike clutter, but clearing the clutter will make your job a lot easier! Start high and go low. Tackle those big and hard to reach surfaces first. Go ahead and get them out of the way. I love spraying Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner with Glade® Rainshower® on items like ceiling fans and mantels and giving them a good thorough wipe with a microfiber cloth, not only will they look amazing - they will smell nice too!

Don't forget things like the trim and windows. When you do a window, clean the tracks (especially around the edges), the glass itself, and then hand wipe each individual blind. The Pledge® Lemon Wipes really come in handy here, they gather all the dust and really get in between each blind for the perfect clean.


Every room of your house is going to be different when you’re deep cleaning. Be sure to pay closer attention to detail and carry Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner with Glade® Rainshower® with you from room to room - trust me, you'll be glad you did! Pick up and move furniture, vacuum under and around everything, hand wipe down the baseboards, door knobs, knick-knacks, basically anything and everything gets cleaned.

A very special piece of furniture in our home only gets cleaned with Pledge®, each and every time. To this day, I use my grandmother's dresser. It was passed down to me many years ago. I believe when my aunt was younger she even used it. It's moved to every house with me and has even been stained and painted a few times, and had some knob upgrades - but it is still the oldest piece of furniture I own and it’s special to me. I only trust Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner with Glade® Rainshower® on it because I want it cherished and taken care of, because one day I hope to pass it down to my daughter and more generations to come.


When you’re working on bedrooms be sure to wash or change curtains and bedding, as well as dust and vacuum. I feel like the kitchen is where we spend the most time, as I'm sure a lot of families do, so this is one area that I know needs a good thorough deep clean! In the kitchen, your biggest job will be polishing the cabinets, inside and out - that's where Pledge® comes in handy again! Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner with Glade® Rainshower® will give those cabinets a beautiful finish; be sure to clear everything off the countertops before you give those a good scrubbing. Wipe down the inside and outside of all of your kitchen appliances and then you can move onto your bathrooms or you can start on your floors, but I typically leave those for last.

Last but not least, your bathrooms, the Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner with Glade® Rainshower® is perfect for that glass shower door, and the Pledge® Lemon Wipes are great to have on hand for all the other multiple surfaces in your bathroom! Don't forget to wipe down your bathroom cabinets as well. Keeping the bathroom clean is a tough job, especially when you share it with kids. This is one area that needs a weekly deep clean!


Your home is a reflection of you and your family, you all love it and Pledge® cares for it and keeps it beautiful. Pledge® brings a brilliant shine to all of your favorite things. With Pledge® you can refresh, reinvigorate and renew your home and all of it's many surfaces. Pledge® protects the things your family loves and celebrates the beauty of homes, so take pride in showing off your home. I know I do and it’s all thanks to Pledge®!

I really love how easy it is to use Pledge® products, the Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner with Glade® Rainshower® and Pledge® Lemon Wipes have helped me thoroughly deep clean my home and so far keep it that way! What do you think? Do you have any tips to add on how to deep clean?

I had no idea that Pledge was good for so many surfaces around the house. I'll have to pick some up and get my house back in tip top shape! [client]
