Bathroom Squeege - what do you use?

Okay, doing some more shopping for the trailer. Just looked at extendable (telescopic) handle squeeges for the shower. Very mixed reviews on them. Quite a few said the screws that hold the blade would fall off and even with replacing them it wouldn't work. Lots of "don't buy" comments. This was for several different brands.

I was thinking an extendable handle would be a good idea to reach both of the bathroom and there would be less bending over (which is not very comfortable for me).

So, what all do you folks use as a squeege in the bathroom?

Thanks!

While not directly on point, I drape a vinyl curtain in front of the toilet so there is less of an area that gets wet. The curtain already covers the door and it's wall. If you could find a sqeegee with amid-length handle, it could be left hanging and the balance of the drying operation, (if you'd like) could be done with a rag around the sqeegee after that.

Small cheap squeegee. A longer handle would be more difficult to use in a confined space. Combined with a chamois, this works well.

The few times we used the shower, we just wiped the toilet seat with a rag, and let the rest air dry. With all the corners. I can't see a squeegee being very effective, is it. I would think the chamois idea would work best.

Broad strokes Jim.
It works, if not too big in any dimension.

Nothing special Laura. Wife just picked up a cheap squeegee at Wally World. We hang it on the bathroom wall with a command hook. If you can find one with a smaller blade - say 6", they're much easier to use.

Same as above, small cheap thing, hangs in the closet. Wipe the rest down with a towel after drying off. In practice we use the CG's showers whenever practical.

We just have the little squeegees but a longer handle may be good.

we used to use a small squeegee. then Lindy the wonder wife got a longer shower curtain, added some command hooks so the shower curtain wraps around the back (thus protecting the toilet seat all all that is behind it. With the little hand held shower, we find we don't have anything to squeegee anymore. That works well for me because I am notoriously bad at things like squeegeeing.

I did the same for my 5.0 plus I changed the shower rod so I could use a regular shower curtain and hooks. Pics here http://www.escapeforum.org/forums/f8...in-2159-2.html scroll down to post 17.
