Abstract : This invention relates to a squeegee type drying device for removing surface adherent liquids from such materials as photographic film or other materials from which surface liquid must be removed. The invention is particularly directed to a spongelike highly absorbent means which is moved along the surface with light pressure to absorb the surface liquid therefrom by capillary action and to continuously and rapidly remove liquid accumulated in the sponge element thereby to maintain the sponge in a highly absorbent condition.
