Searching for a really good windshield squeegee

Can anyone recommend a good telescoping squeegee for cleaning class A windshields? The several I've had in the past couple of years are a disappointment when it comes to the squeegee blade, too stiff and hard. I'm looking for a more flexible rubber blade not the rigid black plastic-like ones I keep running across.

We experimented today using a Swiffer like mop pad on a flat holder we installed Velcro on to do the inside window. Not too bad. Made it easy to reach. More trials are necessayc.

Window cleaning

I obtained mine at a janitorial supply company-check the yellow pages if there is one in your area. Good luck

I've run into the same problem. All are too stiff. Maybe if I let the local truck stop borrow it for a few months, they could break it in for me.

I had the same issue and got a floor squeegee like this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...rch_detailpage

It is soft and flexable, works great!

Got this one, It lasted less then two time used & the black part broke. I was careful using it but it still did not last.

x2 on the water blade. The blade is silicone, not rubber, so it is much more flexible and gets more water off in one pass. I have used this on my boats in the past and on my shower glass. I wouldn't buy any other. The included bracket is handy to allow use with an extension pole or just use it in your hand if the surface is within reach

I bought a floor squeegee at Wal-Mart. The rubber is more pliable than the car-window squeegee and it's wider. It fits the curvature of the windshield much better. Not perfect but best I've had so far.

I too am looking for a good quality brush/squeegee. I don't want to mess with separate tools. I'll be watching this thread to see if anyone can suggest a solution. Thanks!
