    Surely that depends on how much you use each squeegee channel, what type of rubber you are using, how quickly it loses its sharp edge and if the rubber gets damaged or not.

    I normally wash it out a couple of times, get my money's worth haha

    On a serious note I change it whenever it leaves lines on the window

    Usually lasts 2-3 days then turn it around. Then cut it down for smaller channels.
