    Those marks aren't from the squeegee they are from old rubber seals that have started to oxidise and break down on the surface
    Wipe them with a wet cloth as they are made before they can dry
    If they are stained a quick scrub with a magic sponge will take them straight off

    You can actually get black marks off the squeegee rubber mate, I've done it quite a few times. It often happens on the ones where the frames sit flush to the glass with no seals. You'll often hear squeeking when it's happening. As far as cleaning them off, I don't.

    Yes had that many a time. It's a nightmare, especially on a hot day.
