Getting the House Baby Ready with Some Help from Pledge!

“I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Pledge. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating.”

Many of you may or may not know that yours truly is expecting her third child. Yep! When January 31st rolls around, we will be welcoming a little boy into the world– our first boy to be exact.

Recently, I have been doing a LOT of purging and cleaning to get things ready before little guy arrives. I only have 3 months left, and frankly, that is not a lot of time!! Especially when you have to purge a lot of girls stuff. Girl is all we know around here, and I don’t think this little boy is going to appreciate that too much. It’s time to bring in some toy trucks and Army men and a little more testosterone-inspired things.

And– along with all the purging, sorting and rearranging, my goal is to have the house completely spotless, including our 6o-year old hardwood floors. I want this place looking great for our new little guy!

Thankfully, Pledge has come to the rescue and has chosen me to be one of their Pledge Ambassadors for their new line of Hardwood Floor cleaners! I am so excited. I have been needing a product line like this for a VERY long time.

I love hardwood floors. That’s what drew us in when we bought this house. We love the sleek, shiny look of the hardwood floors and how easy it would be to clean up messes and such. What we didn’t know, that like carpet, hardwood floors need TLC too– not just a quick sweep and a quick mop. As you can see in my photos, my floors look dingy and dry. We definitely have not been taking care of them like we should!

Along the years of living here, a lot of the cleaners I have tried have not helped with keeping the floors looking pristine. That’s why I am SO glad Pledge has taken the guessing out of how to keep my floor clean. It seems like these products are going to help do the trick!

And, with three kids who will be constantly wallowing around on them, it’s very important that the products we use are safe and complement a busy mom’s lifestyle. I am hoping Pledge will be that product for me!Pledge Ambassador BadgeFor the next 30 days, I will be testing out this new line of Pledge Hardwood Floor cleaner on every hardwood floor surface in my house. Take a look at my before photos of my floors in the kitchen and in the living room.

Here’s the kitchen- before. We had a rug that sat in here for a long time.. and now there’s a huge dirt stain area. I have mopped and mopped, and it will not go away! I am hoping Pledge will do the trick!

Here’s the floor in the living room. Look at these photos, I just cannot believe how dingy and scuffed up my floors look! I am NOT doing a very good job keeping them looking nice. And that is a shame because I love my floors! They deserve all the care they can get.

So in summary of my before photos–Eww! These floors definitely need some love. Thanks to becoming a Pledge Ambassador, I will be showing some real love to my floors and will be taking the Pledge-to-Pledge Challenge for 30 days! I will come back to show you the results.  I know there has to be some type of improvement, especially since I have seriously neglected the care of my floors.

While you’re waiting on my results post, check out all the info on the new Pledge Wood Floorcare Line that I will be using to see if it will be a good fit for your floors too. You can also get more information from the Pledge Website.

I cannot wait to show you the results in just one month from now!
