How do you reach all of the outside of your windshield to dry it?

That is pretty cool looking. After starting this thread, I either use my leaf blower or adjustable squeegee which works great. That combined with an adjustable wash mop, I reach all of the hard to get to areas while washing and cleaning.

I could use that though when applying rainx to the windshield, instead of using a step ladder that I always fear is going to tip over and scratch the truck.

I bought one of those probably 15 years ago for working on my trucks. Makes working under the hood doable and I am 6 feet tall.
I like the texture of the platform, it'll keep you from taking a tumble when your're washing and your shoes are wet. Now I have something for Santa to bring me for Christmas. 🎅

By the looks of your arms I'm guessing you don't have a damper do you? 😂 See it's hard catching that tailgate when it's falling! 😆

Here's a video showing how it works. Wish I had this years ago.

At 5' 9" I just open the door and stand on the door sill. The A pillar on the drivers side is deep enough to afford a good grip despite the lack of a grab handle on that side.

I open the doors and stand on the black foot steps when at the gas station. At home I use this Step Ladder to do the windows and also to wash and wax the truck. It is stable, light and easy to move around. I can hang Rags and cloths on the handle for convenience...

My other car is a hearse.
seriously though, i'm 6'1", i just reach.
Same. I also use a Cali Water Blade to dry most of it, so that gets me a few more inches of reach.
I have two 5 gallon buckets, I use one for the soapy water and the other I flip upside down and stand on the bottom to do the roof.
