Getting a streak free finish on glass is something that is hard to achieve and you often get left with smears. I bought this for use in the home and with my car. I do not have a window cleaner so I bought it mainly for my house windows but I also use it for the glass on the outside of the car.
==Price and availability==
This is a good quality squeegee and therefore it is not a pound like some of the rubbish ones you find in discount pound shops. This cost £4.45 and I bought it from Home Designs. As it has a sponge section as well as a rubber blade you are getting more for your money. I have had a cheap one before and it was rubbish, the blade was not straight so it just left the water on the surface of the window.
The plastic handle is supported with a rubber grip. I do not find the handle as big as I would like, when I clean the upstairs windows I have to hang practically outside so I would like a little bit more to be able to angle the squeegee better. The handle gives way to a plastic moulded base which supports a rubber blade and a foam sponge that is covered with a shiny mesh.
The squeegee is good for cleaning windows as you can soap it up with a sponge then wash off with the squeegee sponge and then wipe it off with the blade. The blade is thick, straight and with no lumps and bumps. It slices the water off with ease.
The squeegee is really useful and it helps clean the windows really quickly, the only real downside is that the foam has started to come away from the main body now as it the impact of the foam on the window has dragged it away from the holder. I find the squeegee to be useful in cleaning windows and it also does it really well. The rubber blade pulls the water off quickly and leaves the glass dry without any streaks. It takes a few goes to perfect the way you use it, you have to do it by holding the blade at an angle.
This is a reliable tool but it is disintegrating with use. The foam is breaking away however it is still good to use. I will be replacing this with the same one when it finally gives up!
