Window Washing


The Family Handyman Window Washing with a squeegee ( posted in the joke section ) reminded me I must be at least 20 years ahead of the times.

I made this quick connect / dis-connect handle to reach windshields on tall trucks and tall windows. Just takes a second to remove the extension to make it handier for lower windows and about a half second to re-assemble for taller. It doesn't quite meet the criteria for a #2 Morse taper but it works very well.

Re: Window Washing


Nice.

Now if I could only manage to clean windows without leaving streaks. The squeegee makes it easier to get streak free, but I still manage to get a few streaks.

Agree and if I want them really clean I follow up with a product called Invisible Glass ( usually house windows ) but I usually just accept the squeegee quality.
