Thoughts on a good dust brush remover thingy?
I bought a California dust brush or whatever its called and someone told me to spray it with detail spray before first use, well when I went to brush off dust all the red lint came off the brush onto the car. I assume that applying the detailer is what caused this but not sure.

Yah problem is it is garage bound so I pull it out to work on it and it gets dusty / pollen and I hate to wash it then put it back in garage again.

 I always  blow the car off with compressed air & wipe at the same time with a soft cloth  all over ,  wipe the vinyl top with a tac rag   Tongue  then with a bucket of clean water & a leather wipe the whole car down , starting with the vinyl  , ive never washed the charger since I've owned it  Tongue although the charger has never been out in the rain in 25 years  lol

I've bought one of them California dusters too had a number of recommendations on here ,  can't find it but thread was about how we take all the trouble to keep them out of the rain then drown them each Saturday morning .  then someone said they aren't that great   scratchchin    anyone using one ? how are you using it without putting wax all over car ?

I use a California Duster but I've found they work a lot better once they get a little crappy looking.  You can't let them get too crappy or you need to clean them but there is a big period there where you look at it and its all dirty and you think "ugh" but its actually when they work the best in my experience.

Take 2.
I think I bought a pacific coast duster before because I bought/returned to Autozone. Now I picked a real one up at K-Mart of all places and did a test. I just used it right out of the package and it worked ok, I think my issue was putting detailer on it first along with the fact it was not a California duster. however it removes pollen but still leaves red dust here and there.

I use the California duster and it works great. I had a generic one once and it was a piece of junk.

I think part of the issue is it has not been waxed yet, so its fresh paint. Worked perfect on my 07 Charger
