Will not be using Lemon Pledge...had heard about it attracting bees...tried some on my faceshield...it did seem to bead water, but within minutes, little yellow bees started to show up...don't need to be attracting bees

    Bees in helmet=Bad. Had that happen dirt riding twice.

A bee or wasp got into my full face helmet a couple weeks ago. I was cruising a back road, my windshield down three-quarters and my face shield opened slightly so I could get some air. The bee/wasp was sucked right through the opening in my face shield and stung the hell out of me. Luckily, I wear a modular helmet and was able to open it to get him out of there. All the more reason to not use lemon pledge.

I hardly think that Pledge had anything to do with you getting stung. Bee is flying along and then suddenly sucked into the helmet, he probably figured it was time to attack.

Agree,  lemon pledge had nothing to do with the bee getting into my helmet; in fact, there was no lemon pledge on my face shield at the time. The purpose of pledge comment is twofold: 1) to let readers of this post know that the lemon pledge attracts bees, and 2) to say that for that reason I do not plan to use the product on my face shield or windshield. bees. By the way, I have used multi-purpose pledge for the last year and do not recall it attracting bees.

I would probably use Pledge as I did before but I bought a can of Honda Pro glass cleaner and have been using it for over two years. I think closer to three years. Still got some left.
