Curved windshield cleaning

I have a scrubbing brush for cleaning the stuff off the front windshield. It is one piece and curved. I have not found a squeegee that will hug the curve of the windshield when I try to clean it.

What do you use? I don't do ladders for windshield cleaning, just a long pole.

You need a squeegee you can angle .. one such is the Fuller brush window washing kit, brush and squeege.. This mounts on a standard mop handle

You can mount the squeege 90 degrees off (parallel to handle)

Would be a lot more work however.

Alternate.. Clean the thing and only worry about the flat parts and the parts teh wipers wipe

Best option...
Get a wiper arm and blade (Any size) from local auto parts dept. You will need as much of the assmebly as you can, Generate a handle you can attach it to (This is easier than it sounds) and use it.

Try your local commercial cleaning supply stores. I've seen squeegees (albet expensive) that curve to fit the surface. I think they have springs or some other means to flex/curve the squeege.
