Lemon Pledge as a cleaner?

Guy's.I found this on another board. Just a FYI

Thanks for getting in touch with us, Rene

Yes, we have recently changed the formulation for all of our PledgeŽ Furniture Sprays. That said, as we currently are not offering a petroleum-based product that is recommended for use on a motorcycle, we would suggest getting in touch with an auto detailer for an appropriate suggestion.

Kind regards,

Just 1 more from another forum.

Cleaned my bike and wanted to detail it with Lemon Pledge but forgot that I had run out last week. The wife picked me up a couple of cans so later that day I started to use it. I noticed that it wasn't clearing up on the paint and kind of leaving streaks. I tried the other can and the same thing was happening. My brother brought over his, tried it and it was OK?? I called the company and asked them if they had changed the formula recently and they said yes. The formula was changed in Jan of this year-2012. The person I was talking to said that if you look at the back of the can about 1/2 way down there is a white banner and inside that banner it says "contains no petroleum products". If the can has that on it is the new stuff. I went to a number of hardware and grocery stores and could not find any that did not have that that phrase on the back of the can. I did find 6 of the old stock in a few corner stores and will be buying more when ever I see it.

Be green is the excuse. Save money is the reason>

Have been using Pledge for a while. I throw a sheet over the bike in the garage at night as well. Have begun to notice a film on the mirrors and on the chrome now in the mornings or after a couple days of sitting. No, its not moisture.
Wondering if anyone else has noticed this or is paying attention. If not.....those who use it take a look and see if this is happening to you as well. Still using it but may change in order to start a process of elimination until I find what is causing it.

I sent a follow up email back to SC Johnson asking why we have received two different responses from them on the formula change or not in Pledge. Unlike the last email I sent that was answered quickly, 2 days and no reply. Think I'll look to a different product.
