I think Pledge ruined my furniture! please help!

14 years ago

I'm so upset, i've been looking for a solution to this problem, and can't find anything on the net.

I used to use pledge all the time on my wood composite, faky furniture, and it was fine. But recently I got real wood furniture, and used pledge on it, and it was fine at first, but now whenever i put anything on it, it creates whitish marks, almost like a film. I can rub them out with my hand only, a cloth really doesen't work as well. Anyway, it's all blotchy and uneven! I don't know what kind of finish my furniture is, but it's not shiny, if that helps!

I've seem the posts that say that it can't be refinished, and that makes me really mad! Anyway, is there any way to get the pledge off? I've only applied it once. How can get it off and get rid of those marks and what should I do to clean my furniture in the future?

Also, did I ruin my floors using murphy's oil soap? My floors are polyurethaned, but not sealed? What's a good product to use on the floors?
