I've tried every type of squeegee and always came back to the Yankee. While simple and rather crude it does the job very nicely once you learn it's quirks. I always soak in water for 15-20 minutes before using, squeeze out the water and wipe very gently. My negs are spot/scratch free and dry very quickly.

Nice, but weakly constructed

My personal preference is for a film squeegee with sponges rather than rubber blades. This one fills that bill nicely, however, the plastic handle is poorly constructed and can break easily,...Read complete review

    Worked great!

    By Jrayporter

    from Cushing, ok

    Comments about Yankee Film Squeegee:

    I have to admit that I was a little hesitant, since I've always used the rubber squeegee, but after my first use I am sold! This squeegee seems to give a more balanced pass and didn't leave lines or scratches like my rubber type has left. This will definitely be my go to film squeegee now.

                  I like the photo sponge rather than the rubber blade type of squeegee. I make sure it is kept very very clean and in like new condition to prevent damage to my film.

                      This squeegee looks a little primitive, but it works just fine. I've developed two rolls with it now and haven't had any problems with water spots.

                      The sponges came off the plastic handle after only a few uses. It's still usable, but not convenient.

                        I didn't like this at all, I had to squeegie my film with it 4 times just to get the majority of the water drops off. I thought a sponge would do better than a rubber squeegee but, you get what you pay for.
