The HDX 12in Window Washer 2-in-1 Squeegee and Scrubber is exactly what I need to clean the tall windows in my home. I had previously been required to lug a 5ft steel ladder/step stool to every tall window in my house (both inside and out) when I needed to clean them. I used the two-in-one tool that is both a scrubber and squeegee and extends, handily, with a quick twist, to 60 inches from my hand to the scrubber for applying the cleaning solution to the windows. Then, by removing the machine washable sleeve, rinsing and wringing it out, I used clean water to rinse the windows then squeegeed the excess water off for a wonderful, shiny, clean window in less than half the time it took when using the bulky ladder. The squeegee and scrubber are both twelve inches wide and the handle contracts to around 40 inches for close in cleaning. There is a sponge rubber grip in the middle of the handle to help prevent hand fatigue when using the window cleaner.
