Squeegee The familiar rubber-edged "broom" used for sweeping water from windows, vehicle windscreens, and the like, after they have been washed. Originally a nautical word, with the variation "squilgee;" it referred to the swab used for washing and cleaning the decks, and is a corrup- tion of "squeege;" which itself is a colloquialism for "squeeze."
