Our #7 choice for best antibacterial spray is the Pledge Multisurface Cleaner, a spray product that can be used on wood furniture, glass, metal, sealed granite, and electronics. It works well on hard surfaces, although some users have reported streaking, so you may want to take that into consideration. Still, this problem can be alleviated by using a clean cloth with this multi surface cleaner. If you want to reduce your spending, check our best prices on appliances article.

Why We Like It – Pledge Antibacterial Surface Cleaner

One product that we would recommend for cleaning hard surfaces is the Pledge Multi Surface Cleaner, an everyday cleaner that removes dust and cleans hard non porous surfaces efficiently.

  • Great For Hard Surfaces
  • Citrus-Scented
  • Easy-to-use Spray Design

This cleaner excels at hard surfaces, but it can’t be used on soft surfaces. The Pledge Multi Surface Cleaner doubles as both a cleaner and a disinfectant, which makes it a great product if you don’t want to buy multiple cleaners. It delivers a citrus scent, which (although some users report that the smell can be strong) received an overall positive review. Helpful tips for this product are to wipe off surfaces after use and to be careful not to over-apply the cleaner, as this product has been known to leave behind some residue on surfaces, unlike CleanSmart Disinfectant Spray.


Pledge Multi Surface Cleaner is designed for hard surfaces only, so its claim as a “multi surface” cleaner is somewhat misleading. You can’t use it on any soft surfaces, so if you’re trying to make shoes smell better, try Elite Sportz Shoe Deodorizer and Foot Spray instead. Still, this spray bottle is easy-to-use on the recommended surfaces and comes out as a mist that can be easily adjusted by changing the amount of pressure you put on the handle. The can itself has a yellow top, blue middle, and orange bottom, making it very easy on the eyes.


Moderately priced, this cleaner won’t break your bank, but also won’t solve all of your cleaning needs. You can’t use this on any soft surfaces, and you definitely wouldn’t want to use it on your adult toys (instead, try the Shibari Advanced Antibacterial Toy Cleaner!). You can get true (both hard and soft) multi-surface cleaners for around the same price, so you may want to explore alternative options. However, if you’re only concerned with cleaning and disinfecting the hard surfaces around your home, then you will be more than satisfied with this product.

Pledge Antibacterial Surface Cleaner Wrap Up

This is a great product for cleaning and sanitizing hard surfaces. Although it is not usable on soft surfaces and can streak on hard surfaces (which can be prevented by using a cleaning cloth to wipe off residue), it is nonetheless an effective cleaner and disinfectant that can be used on a wide variety of solid surfaces while providing a pleasant smell for an affordable price.
