    How much would you pay for a length of rubber, a 42" strip which would give you 3 x 14" strips?

    It's hard or soft, if postage was £1, how much would you pay per strip?

    To be honest, if your squeegee is dog-eared, and you were doing a lot of trad work (say 50 houses) you could wear it down significantly in a day.

    I tend to make mine last 3 or 4 days, but if money was no issue, I'd change it ever 2 days.
