There’s nothing like a good book and perfect cup of coffee on a rainy day right? This pillow would agree, and we think your friend will too!

10 Pre-Fab Homes You Can Buy On Amazon

Let’s be honest, we all want to eventually own a home. But the reality in the current economy is that most of us can’t afford to buy one-especially without getting into massive debt.  

So some, such as myself, have decided to go a minimalist route. However, if you’re someone who maybe doesn’t have the skills or time to build a small structure to live in, never fear! There are lots of options out there including on Amazon.  Ready to prime yourself a house?

Shower Squeegees: Reduce Your Time Cleaning The Shower

Shower Squeegees: Reduce Your Time Cleaning The Shower

Shower squeegees are not the most exciting topic, but they do provide you with an easy way to reduce the amount of time you spend cleaning your shower.   And who doesn’t love that?

A quick swipe of a squeegee will effectively remove soap scum, excess water, bacteria, and even reduce mold and hard water stains.  And it only takes a second, so why not give it a try?  After all, if you’re anything like me, you’ll put off cleaning until the shower scum is so grown over that it takes a good thirty minutes of scrubbing to take care of it.

If you want to give it a try, here are some of the best squeegees money can buy.

Hiware All-Purpose Shower Squeegee

With an average 5 star rating, this squeegee is a best seller on Amazon. It provides streak-free drying with a smooth wiping motion. It comes with an ergonomic handle, making it easy on the hands, it’s lightweight, and it comes with a set up to hang it in the shower.

Some other great things about the Hiware Squeegee is that it can be used on multiple surfaces, depending on your needs. It’s great for the shower, windows, mirrors, and even car windows! It comes with a 2 year warranty in case you’re skeptical. Sounds like it’s worth a try!

Price: $12.99

 

OXO Good Grips All-Purpose Squeegee

Ratings from over 3,000 customers lead to an average 4 stars for this squeegee, making it a reliable choice. The lightweight build and comfortable, non-slip grip make it easy to use. The suction cup holder provides a simple way to hang it up where needed. It has a durable blade and should last long enough to be worth your money.

Price: $11.99

 

Original Soft-N-Dry T-Bar Silicone Water Blade

This squeegee also boasts a 4 star rating from customers and can be used on multiple surfaces besides the shower. The unique T-Bar edge eliminates over 90% of standing water stains, and its silicone blade bends to fit the surface being worked on, helping to get a deeper clean.

This squeegee does not come with a way to hang it on the shower wall.

Price: $11.94

 

CLERET iDO Shower Squeegee with DUAL Wiping Edge Cleaning Blade

The CLERET iDO squeegee with dual wiping edge cleaning blade is an Amazon’s Choice product and is a quality product while also being inexpensive. With an average 4.5 star rating, customers have shown this is a squeegee they prefer.

The dual wiping edge design leads to better cleaning than a one edge squeegee. Also, it only weighs 3.9 oz! Talk about easy to carry. With an attractive design and practically invisible wall holder, this squeegee is good for the eyes as well as for cleaning the shower.

Price: $8.99

 

E-PRANCE Shower Window Squeegee

Over 500 customer reviews have led to the E-PRANCE squeegee having an average 4 star rating. Like many of the other squeegees, this squeegee can be used on multiple surfaces, not just the shower. Its secure holder mounts on the wall and is more reliable than suction cup holders.

E-PRANCE consists of durable, quality parts, ensuring it will last. Also, the new handle design provides a longer handle with stripes for easy gripping.

 

Price: $16.99

 

Get Your Squeegee On

In the end, we all have our own preferences when it comes to cleaning products like squeegees. But sometimes it’s worth giving something new a try, so get your squeegee on!
