I installed a screen protector for my phone recently and with it they included this small flexible rubber squeegee. Seems kind of a waste for one use in terms of the phone but I quickly thought of a great way to reuse it again and again. The standard spreaders that I use on automotive work are just too stiff. I've also tried credit cards with some luck but the putty tends to stick to them. This one is really a soft, flexible, rubber. It was for a Kindle with the 8" screen if you look for one.

If you let the automotive spreaders soak in laquer thinner, they will become quite flexible. It will also remove the stuck filler from the spreader. An auto body tech I used to work with did this all the time, enabling him to reuse the same spreaders over and over.
