Do it Yourself “Pledge” Spray! Two Ingredients!!

Image copy

I’m so in love with this DIY. I cannot believe how easy and CHEAP it is to make your own “Pledge” spray! All you need are TWO ingredients!!!

Here they are:

  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oli
  • Lemon or Lime Essential oil (you can substitute 1/4 cup lemon juice)

You will also need a spray bottle to put it in. I used my Misto from Bed Bath & Beyond. It’s awesome! Pump the cap a few times and you turn your bottle into an aerosol can! And, you’re going to want to use a microfiber cloth to wipe your surfaces down.

Ok. Step 1: add 1/2 cup olive oil to your bottle.


Step 2: add about 20 drops of your lemon/lime essential oil into your olive oil. *Remember, if you don’t have essential oils, just use 1/4 cup of lemon juice instead.


Shake your bottle to mix the ingredients. Then, spray your homemade Pledge onto your wooden surface.


Use a microfiber cloth to wipe your surface down.


Now, here is a better picture of my table BEFORE I sprayed it down. All that gunk you see is left over glue from making Christmas decorations. It’s horrible!


And now here’s what my table looked like AFTER I used my homemade “Pledge”.


YAY!! All you can’t see is the happy dance I’m doing!! 🙂

This is SO easy and SO MUCH cheaper than buying the canned stuff!! Try this next time you have a wooden surface that needs a little sprucing up!

    Sounds easy! Is it ok to use on a weekly basis for regular dusting? I’ve read a few posts about making DIY pledge with olive oil but have been hesitate to try it. Does the olive oil leave the furniture greasy? Thanks for sharing!

    Nice! Thank you! Going to make this today.

    Sorry, this is NOT Pledge by any stretch.

    This might be a useful liquid to apply (or not), but Pledge has many more ingredients, and probably no oil. In particular it contains butane and other solvents, and solvents would dissolve a very thin layer of the old finish, which is probably intentional to remove scratches. Solvents would also evaporate after application, leaving a non-greasy finish — olive oil will certainty stay around, and probably leave an oily film on any finished surface.

    So I have no issue with using your formula on furniture, but it is not Pledge.
