at the dealership i work at they started construction on a super wal mart directly behind us...right now they are pushing dirt from sunrise to sunset... stirring up serious amounts of dust... being that its summer time im driving the z daily so it is getting absolutely covered in dust.. on bad days its so bad you cant see out the windows.. im constantly washing the new cars on the lot and trying to squeeze mine in when i have the chance... a couple of the sales man suggested using a california duster...ive typically been against using them... they had one for the showroom cars but i threw it away after seeing all sorts of scratches on a black cts-v.... on some of the other boards ive seen people talking about using them and that they are great and perfectly safe... so my question is.. are they?? maybe if it was just light dust i could see using one but i would think that you are just dragging the dust around.. scratching it along the way... maybe if i owned a pewter or silver car but not anything dark

ive used it for over 5 years on dark and light color cars never ever had a problem... i guess if there were big rocks or fragments it might drag them across it still i highly doubt it...me personally i cant live with out the damn thing... its like miracle.. so if i had to say anything id call it safe never heard of anyone having any problems with it

those things are great....my car is black and its never left scraches on it...

some info on it: there is a wax thats in the strands of it so it actually picks up the dust and dirt instead of just moving it around

Did you guys have a problem with the Parrifin wax (sp?) smearing on your paint when you first got it?

Yep. If you wrap the duster in a few sheets of newspaper and let it sit for a few days, it should absorb most of the excess wax that way it won't streak your paint.

Like stated above, just make sure that there aren't any huge pieces of dirt or rocks, etc. You won't be dissapointed.

Been using one for about 4 years, it's seen 4 different fbody's. Just dont press down keep it lifted about an 1" off your surface you'll be good.

When you first get it sit it out on newspaper for 24 hours. The more you use them the better they get, I love mine. Try finding one of the big heavy thick ones like when they first came out, I see alot of scrawny ones anymore.
