I use the cali. duster on my car everytime I put my car away and cover it. I've had my car for about 16 months and and the duster has not produced any swirls on the car. If your careful and just use it to dust, you'll have no problems. If the car is dirty dont use it, just wash the car.

Still sounds scary. I think I'm going to have to resort to this though... That damn carbon black, what a dust collector!

i think using it 1 or 2 days after a wash is okay. after that, the dust and other dirt start clumping and settling in... using a duster will increase the chances of scratching or swirling.

I would use the Cal Duster to "knock the dust off", but since it's always clean and used alot I never have a dust problem.

As you know, it's not going to wash itself.

The dirtier the California Duster gets the better it works. It is not a substitute for a wash. Just for dusting between washes.

Those little fibers ar coated with wax (Carnauba). Lightly dust and you'll have no problems.

I have been using mine for a year now and seen no issues. It is time to get another one soon.

I use the cali duster too. If the dirt is loose dirt the cali duster works wonders. If you car was parked outside and your car gets misty or wet, the dirt will stick to your car and not the cali duster. This is the time when you have to wash your car.

I reccommend the same tool i use to dry my car. a toro 215mph leaf blower. it does the trick VERY well.

It also comes in handy when my girlfriend is out of town
