What is Orange Glo® Cleaner?

By Bethany Keene
Updated: Feb 07, 2024

Orange Glo® cleaners are a line of household cleaners from the Church & Dwight Company, based in Princeton, New Jersey. The manufacturing company is more commonly known for their Arm & Hammer® line of products. According to the company, Orange Glo® is primarily used for cleaning wood surfaces, such as furniture and floors. The products are made with orange oil from Valencia oranges.

The Orange Glo® line includes products to polish furniture and clean wood floors, along with other surfaces in the home. The company also sells microfiber cleaning cloths, a mop, and a fiber refinisher pad. According to the company website, Orange Glo® "wipes away grease, grime, and dull waxy buildup to reveal your wood's natural radiance." The manufacturer suggests using Orange Glo® every time you clean, to protect the furniture from future damage, renew the color of the surface of the wood and buff out scratches. The company does warn against using Orange Glo® on unfinished wood.

Orange Glo® does not need to be diluted and can be sprayed directly on to the furniture, but always follow the manufacturer's directions on the bottle. Don't spray the cleaner onto the floor, though--it can become slippery. The instructions on the products also state that they can be used in other areas of the home, such as for removing soap scum in the bathroom, or on tile floors. The cleaner can also be used on outdoor patio furniture and in your vehicle. Because it is manufactured with orange oil, it leaves behind a pleasant orange scent.

To purchase Orange Glo® it can be ordered online, through television infomercials or located in the cleaning section in stores. Depending on the product you are purchasing, the price ranges from $5 US Dollars (USD) to $7 USD a bottle. The company also sells a Hardwood Floor Care system that includes cleaners, cloths, and a mop for approximately $40 USD.

Searching online reveals a number of comments from dissatisfied users, stating that Orange Glo® leaves a white film on hardwood floors. The white film is apparently very difficult to remove and needs to be scrubbed off using other cleaning products. If you have this problem with the cleaner, it is best to contact the customer service department of the company directly or a professional hardwood floor cleaning company, who will be able to instruct you in the safest way to proceed.

If you have hardwood floors or wood furniture, it is important to take good care of them. This means using soft cloths to gently clean and dust them, and keeping them out of too much direct sunlight. Do not allow moisture to sit on the the wood or wax to build up. Temperature extremes can also cause damage. Taking care of your hardwood floors and furniture can make sure they last a long time.
