Product Review: Shurhold’s Shur-Dry Water Blade

shurhold-water-bladeWe just finished detailing several boats that were in the Seattle Boat Show. Every morning for nine days straight, we arrived down at the show dock to find our boats wet from rain or dew that we had to dry before the show opened that day. We couldn’t have done it very quickly or easily without our handy Shur-Dry water blades. Even if you don’t have a boat, you should buy one of these simply because of how fun they are to hold and flex!

We’ve tried several different types of squeegees over the years and this one is definitely my favorite because of its flexibility (you can easily squeegee around corners), the quality rubber it’s made of and its easy-to-grip handle. It works well on windows, Isenglass (use lightly) and gel coat. You can even use it over varnished or stainless rails. As soon as you’ve swiped the area with the squeegee, the gel coat or wood will be dry to the touch. If there is any water left, just use a microfiber rag to dry the drips, but the squeegee won’t leave anything streaky. It’s a great way to get streak-free windows.

We have also used it on the interior of boats to dry freshly washed shower stall glass, tub sides and walls, windows and mirrors. Just spray the cleaner on the glass, window, mirror or countertop, wipe in with a dry rag and then use the squeegee to remove any excess cleaner residue. It will dry the area completely and without any streaks.

Shurhold also sells a pole and adapter that this water blade can attach to. This makes it much easier to reach high sections or windows on your boat. I guess there’s no reason why you can’t also use this product at home on second floor windows to get them streak free. And for that matter, the water blade works great on cars, as well.

    Hi Natalie,

    I just found your web site and can’t stop reading your articles-so much great info.

    When waxing, do you recommend paste or liquid? I have used both and find that lightly wetting the surface with water and then applying the paste makes it much easier to remove. However, liquid is easier and less time consuming. Which method to you use/prefer and which wax brand do you recommend?

    Thank you,
