I have the black (beauty) nox. We (ok, my husband) takes a "california duster" to the nox. Quick once-over and she looks marvelous dahling...between washings. Cool thing about this duster, is that it works better the dirtier it gets..

Yes indeed, that is the brand name "California duster" they carry them at autoparts stores and walmart, etc. Really a cool item that doesn't take any real care. They sell for about $15-20 depending where you purchase. In fact, my Chevy dealer has them.

You can throw them in the washing machine

be sure to remove from the wood handle first though ::)

This is a Forum...and ya know sometimes folks will read stuff "literally"

which is why in the bluetooth thread I tried to be "lighthearted" so you wouldn't think I was "slamming"

The way I use the Duster, is on a clean car.. that just has some pollen or road dust on it from a day of driving.. I use it on my Black Miata, between washes...once the car has bird dropping/bugs or its rained, even if just a light rain...i dont use the duster..thats just me though...

Dusters are only for dusting not dry cleaning.

First thing to do is take the duster new and sit it on newspaper to absorbe the extra treatment in the mop.

Then as state use it and the dirtier it gets the better it works. I would avoid using it in the sun as the wax on the surface can streak.

I will use mine in light sweeps over the car in a straight line. This knocks off most of the dust or pollen. Then I follow with Adams Detail Spray and a large micro fiber towel. This works really well on my Black cars and keeps them clean for long periods of time.

I would not recomend washing it as it will continue to work well dirty for a long time. If it is bad enough to wash I would toss it and just buy a new one. They are not that expensive.

I have a CCD that I got back around 1994. Still use the same one today. It's basically black now but still works AMAZING! All I ever do is shake it out and probably 3 times ever rinse it. Be sure to buy the real product and not some knock off or you maybe disappointed.

Is it true that the dirtier the Duster gets the better ? That just seems odd to me . I have one and the yarn is black , seems to work still on my 2012 Carbon Mettallic Black Terrain , but was wondering is if it should be replaced . They aren't that expensive . :help:

My California Duster is 6 years old and pretty dark/black. It still works. I will be looking to replace it sometime this week. Follow the directions b/4 using as with anything.

Yes they do get better with use but keep in mind there is a limit to everything. If you note it is not picking up like it should or if it has any kind of grittiness to it then you might want to replace it. If you have any question on the condition replace it as like state they are cheap.

I have one and use it daily. I would NOT recommend washing them, there are oils on the duster that allow it to clean the dust without scratching the paint of your vehicle.
