Anyone out there use these things? I just got one, and so far am satisfied on how well it takes off road dust. Does this duster harm the paint at all? Anyone have any testimonial stories? Thanks

I have not had any personal experience with the car dusters. I wouldn't use one on my car. For keeping a "indoor" car dustless they seem to work well, but for real-world applications with salt/grit/grime/mud/bird droppings/etc I'm not sure how safe they'd be for the finish. However, I have only ever seen them used to remove the lightest of dust. Just a tiny bit of light particulate you could probably remove most of with a sharp breath. If someone tried to use it on heavy surface dirt or road grime I imagine it would scratch the paint and gum up the duster. Car wash is cheap, water is cheap, paint jobs or major re-conditioning is expensive. Definitly something to use with care. Just my observations...Lee

I personally am a BIG fan of The California Duster. Mostly I see it used on show cars more so than daily drivers. Just about everyone that shows their cars from 57 Chevys to Mustangs and Vettes use the Cal. Duster.
I use it after I take my garage queen out and before I use Meguiar's Quick Detailer with a fresh towel. The combination really keeps my car looking it's best just about all of the time.
