Why use a bathroom squeegee?
If water is allowed to sit on shower walls or on the mirror, there is more chance of limescale build-up.
While limescale marks can be removed using specially designed household products, or solutions such as white vinegar, the ideal option is to prevent their appearance in the first place by using a bathroom squeegee.
How to use a shower squeegee
A bathroom squeegee is equipped witha plastic or steel handle and arubber or silicone scraper. It is also generally fitted with a system to hang or attach it to the wall.
Easy to use, bathroom squeegees are used to wipe away waterresidue. Swiped in a downward motion, these accessories won't leave behind any cloth or finger marks. Ideal for any glazed surface, they can also be used to clean bathroom tiles.

Squeegees can be equipped with scrapers of various sizes. If you want to clean your glass surfaces quickly and efficiently, go for a model with a wide scraper.

Depending on your needs, you can decide between suction cups or hooks.
