Pledge Polish

SC Johnson

Posted on

As a tyke, our big console stereo was the sound of early Beatles upon its turntable and the smell of Pledge lemon polish.  It’s mahogany sides and top were usually over-waxed in our zealous effort for extra treats, but what can beat progress and accomplishment?

Detailing Dad’s car interior involved final attention with Pledge, as the smell alone meant something got done.  And now, after a huge mouse-control refurbishment upstairs, after the floors are freshly repaired and refinished, walls plastered and painted, the final step?  Resetting the furniture, newly cleaned and polished with Pledge.

Customer service representatives in Racine Wisconsin were standing by when our call came in.  Working from home, a basket of preschoolers audible, Kirsten had the facts.  “Yes, Pledge is made in the United States”.  Rustling papers . . . “Right here in Racine, Wisconsin”.  The same town listed on the can.  “Pledge was released nationwide in 1958”.

WOW!  S.C. Johnson comes full circle, yet again.  The spray wax I remember as a pre-schooler, I’m still using now.  And her kids are growing up under the safe blanket of S.C. Johnson ethics.  Bravo!

S.C. Johnson & Sons Inc.  Quality never goes out of style.

SC Johnson is a separate, privately held company and has never had any family or business connection with Johnson & Johnson. SC Johnson does not manufacture or sell pharmaceutical products. This confusion does a disservice to the goodwill earned by generations of SC Johnson people and our iconic brands.
