Homemade Squeegee

About: We're Mother Daughter Projects, sharing our DIY adventures as we learn to maintain, improve, decorate, and use tech in our homes.

We saw the idea online to put pipe insulation on a rake to act as a squeegee. We were not so sure it would work. We ended up needing a second squeegee to clean Steph's garage floor and we thought we would try out the idea.

Turns out it works! But the pipe insulation kept coming off so Steph thought two zip ties would keep it in place and that did the trick!

Step 1: Combine Materials

Materials:

  1. Rake
  2. Pipe Insulation
  3. Two Zip Ties

Step 2: You're Done!

We had a real squeegee and this one we put together and this one was just as effective as the real squeegee. We will use this idea again!
