Pledge, Trusted From Back Then! (Giveaway)

CONTESTS | | November 19, 2010 at 9:47 pm


Congratulations Sheila!

There are many products that are symbolic in the USA that I cannot claim affinity to growing up, since I grew up in South Africa. Pledge is not one of them. My mom loved furniture, good furniture. In fact she loved ensuring that all furniture was made from imbuia. I personally did not like the darkness of it and hated more that she insisted it staying dust-free. Of course now with my current home so strewn with so many put-together furniture, as IKEA can attest to that fact, and I really miss the solidness and beauty of imbuia. So back decades ago, right in South Africa my mom only bought one furniture spray that she trusted – Pledge. In fact when I look at Pledge I still think of her. I am on a daily basis learning that she was right about many things.

Then slow me finds out that it is not just for furniture, but a multi-purpose cleaner. It can also be used to clean stainless steel, countertops, marble, and even leather. Being a multi-tasker myself, I love it when my products are the same.

Now I am part of the team spreading the news about the ”Pledge to Love Your Kitchen” campaign. You want the deets, don’t you?  Pledge® is helping one modern mom update her kitchen with the “Pledge to Love Your Kitchen” contest, The contest offers moms the chance to win $15,000 in the form of retailer gift cards to help update their kitchen with marble, granite, stainless steel and leather surfaces along with a year’s supply of Pledge®. Can you say “Awesome” – I will be totally jealous of that prize!

Now that you have recovered from reading about that amazing prize, you want to know all the nitty gritty details, right? In order to enter, people will need to download 2 pictures and a 75-word essay on why their kitchen could use a little love. The “Pledge to Love Your Kitchen” contest runs November 15, 2010 through December 10, 2010. The winner of the “Pledge to Love Your Kitchen” will walk away with $15,000 in kitchen improvements. Nope, that number was not an error $15,000!

Hmm, while I would have loved to give you that prize here, I have something else that you can win too (though I recommend going there to enter to since you just never know).

One lucky winner will receive a prize pack full of Pledge product (ARV: $40)

    If I won, I would put in tile floors, move the electrical outlets ABOVE the countertop instead of below them, I’d get rid of the popcorn ceiling, get a new light fixture and probably get rid of the wallpaper. If there was any money left, I would search the ends of the earth for a refrigerator that DOESN”T have glass shelves!!! I want the wire ones back! You KNOW that only a man could have come up with such a stupid idea as the glass ones that need to be cleaned all the time!
