Hot Rod legend Don Varner likes to tinker. He is captivated by thinking outside the box to make something more efficient, effective or even aesthetically more appealing. Take the humble squeegee…
When Don designed the first “Water Blade” in 1996, it changed car care. Now known as the Original Water Blade, the original has evolved as Varner created a more efficient “Y Blade” edge that effectively removes more than 90% of standing water in, you guessed it, ONE PASS!
A T-bar uses its edge as the contact point, and the blade molds over irregularities like rivets to easily whisk away water. The thicker body of the blade keeps gentle pressure on the “T” edge, which is why it works better than a flat silicone blade, according to Varner. “But the Hydroglide Y-blade is even better. Once again, it’s the thin leading edge that does the work. In this case, we built the body thicker with a flex point just above the Y-blade edge. This gave us the ability to build structural support in the body while using a lower durometer silicone.”
Unlike a bunch of soggy chamois cloths, the medical grade silicone resists all mold and mildew. Better yet, for those mirror shine surfaces, the Y-Blade offers 15-times less friction than a terrycloth towel. It can be used for kitchen and bath chores, too. Varner even offers a full 5-year warranty on all Gel Blades.
