Best Extendable Windshield Washing Pole

I bought one at CW that I was happy with but every time I go and look at their current ones the rubber squeegee is too hard and doesn't squeegee well. Are there good ones out there?

My wife got me one from the RV department at Walmart. I like it a lot.

Walmart, for about $12. After washing with the brush side, I use the back side of the head with a towel draped over it to dry.

The best gizmo I have found is any kind of washer but the key is this squeege. It easily conforms to curved windows. So I have two devices, one with a sponge/scrubby that I just pour windex on and then this device to get the fluid off.

I made a squeegee out of a 18 inch wiper blade. Works well since it follows the curve of the windshield.

But I have stopped using water because of water spots on the front of the RV.

Now I spray ammonia free window cleaner, use the scrubber side of the window washer tool, and then a microfiber cloth over the squeegee side of the tool.

Cleaner glass, no water streaks between strokes, and no water spots on the front cowl.

I use a extendable painters pole from Lowe's.

I tried a combination washer and squeegee from Home Depot, located in the cleaning products area, but the squeegee was at the wrong angle and didn't wipe clean.

I replaced it with these three items: Squeegee, brush and pole. The squeegee and brush have a push button connector that allows you to snap on either end quickly. I snap on the brush, dip it in the window wash bucket at the fuel stop and wash the window. The squeegee snaps on easily and I squeegee it clean. The pole also has a threaded end so you can add a wash brush for coach cleaning. It a nice sturdy pole.

Squeegee - Unger 12 in. Stainless Steel Window Squeegee with Rubber Grip and Bonus Rubber Connect and Clean Locking System-961010 - The Home Depot

Cleaning Brush - Unger 14 in. Window Scrubber with Microfiber and Overmold Grip Connect and Clean Locking System-963920 - The Home Depot

Pole - Unger 4 ft. 2-Section Telescoping Squeegee Extension Pole-UNG EZ120 - The Home Depot

The Home Depot squeegee can also be carefully bent and formed to a curve which works well on the curved windshield on our DP. If needed, I still use the telescoping pole with the bug cleaning pad from the Auto Parts store, but only use it's stiff squeegee on side windows. Then grab the other Home Depot pole with the curved squeegee for the front windshield. Still looking for a BUG cleaning attachment for the Home Depot pole.

Best squeegee I've found is windshield wiper. You'll need a bracket, then snap the wiper blade off the arm and on to the end of the pole.
