plastic squeegee

I used the last of my plastic squeegees last night glassing the cockpit. I'm still going to need to glass the hull. Is there a way to clean the squeegees for reuse or do I have to buy new ones?

Usually I just let the epoxy thoroughly cure and it pops right off when the squeegee is flexed.

What Laszlo said. Then, if the edge is a little ragged use your block plane to clean it up.

Have used the same squeegee on 3 kayaks and a surfboard.

Also, bear in mind that Harbor Freight sells these plastic squeegees in a package of 20 for $7.99:

Think of all the boats you could build with just one package!

I cut a slot in a plastic milk bottle and swipe my squeegee through the newly made slot.  When done let the epoxy dry and bend it slightly and the cured epoxy will pop right off.
