    Found using squeegees by hand, has been a bit of trick or more to the point.
    To try to get a technique that suit the way you use squeegees by hand.
    Found that using a squeegee griping over the handle makes it quit awkward to use or should I say tricky to get the right grip/technique.
    So you will see in this video that this is a much easier way and quicker
    Way to squeegee.

    Yes it seems as though there is.
    Know it does not look right.
    But if you try and do the movements like in the video you will find that it is easier on your wrists.
    And yes Smurf you do find the way that works best.
    This particular just tried to keep my hand more under the handle then over.
    When using this way your is sort of on the side of the squeegee handle.
    Found that it was more comfortable to hold ad able to turn the squeegee easier.
    Know it looks awkward but just try it.
    Let me know what you think.
