I knew what a squeegee was called in French but not in English.
When we took Olivier to his apartment for the first time there was a lot of form filling and an inventory to do with his landlord. Olivier has a brand new shower big enough for 3 people at least. The door is clear glass. Needless to say, the landlord wants to look after his assets, so he has provided a squeegee.
This inspired me to buy one for our shower and now every morning I have a quick squeege around before I get out of the shower. It takes less than a minute.
I’m now prepared to use it to clean the windows when the weather permits. I had a look on YouTube to discover the best technique. It was interesting to see that the Anglo-Saxon videos on the subjects lasted a lot longer than the French ones. Actions speak louder than words; you don’t even need to understand French and it lasts just over 2 minutes!
A tip: For the best results, be gentle.
