The 4 Best Window Squeegees
For sparkling clean windows, mirrors, windshields, and shower doors, you need one of the best window squeegees. First, you’ll want to think about where and how you’ll be using your window squeegee. For your car, you’ll probably want a portable one and one with a special scrubby to clean away dust, pollen, and the other elements your car may endure is especially great.
A slightly larger, more versatile pick is best for your home; but consider choosing one that works well for cleaning shower doors as well as windows, mirrors, and other kitchen and bathroom surfaces. This tends to mean a smaller blade than what you might need for outdoor use, but don't worry, I've got a pick for that, too. For professional-scale cleaning, you’ll likely want a super-durable pick with a longer blade, which is what the pros use.
As far as materials go, silicone and rubber are the best materials for a squeegee blade. Ergonomic handles are ideal for comfort, and handles made of steel and brass are more durable than plastic ones. However, plastic is more lightweight. So, you’ll want to decide what’s more important to you: durability or ease of use.
Below, I’ve rounded up the best picks for your home, car, and more. Whatever your cleaning needs, there’s a squeegee for the job, and they’re all highly rated on Amazon.

What fans love: “This is without a doubt the best squeegee out there! I’ve been searching for one for a long time and have tried many. But most of them either don’t last, don’t do the job, or are just too cumbersome to hold. [...] My first impression was that it was too small to do the job but I was soon proven wrong. Its compact shape makes getting into those tight spaces around the faucets so easy. If I could give this product 10 stars I would!!!”
2. The Best Squeegee For Cleaning Outside Your Home
The DocaPole Telescopic Squeegee is ideal for those hard-to-reach windows outside of your home. The aluminum telescopic pole's extension ranges from 5 feet up to 12 feet, and the dual head has a squeegee on one side and a washable chenille microfiber scrubber on the other side.

While it's not clear from the manufacturer, reviewers seem to think that the squeegee's material is rubber. Plus, this pick can also rotate up to 180 degrees, making it even simpler to clean from all the right angles.

3. The Best Window Squeegee For Your Car
While my first pick mentions being good for car windows and windshields, the Ettore Auto Squeegee combines a rubber squeegee with a scrubber so it’s a cinch to really scrub clean and dry your car windows. If you want a squeegee to leave in your car, this is it. The 8-inch squeegee is made of durable rubber, the scrubber is covered with nylon netting for added cleaning power, and the 16-inch wooden handle makes it simple to clean your windshield quickly.

4. The Best Professional-Quality Window Squeegee
This squeegee pick is ideal for professional-quality squeegeeing and more demanding cleaning projects; it’s made of rust-proof durable brass that's ready for the toughest jobs. Further, the rubber blade is 18-inches long so it can cover a lot of surface area without streaking. However, you’ll need to buy an extension pole to make this pick fully functional.
What fans love: “I am a professional cleaning contractor. I purchased this squeegee to clean front entrance lobby windows, and it does an excellent job cleaning the soap off of the windows. [...] The brass squeegee is very well made, and is weighty due to being well made. This squeegee will last a long time if it is taken care of. The rubber blade is easily, and inexpensively replaceable. If you want to give your windows a professional clean, then GET THIS ONE!”
