A popular automotive cleaning tool, the California Duster is a large hand-held duster that is used to remove light dust and dirt from a car’s paint and is intended to be used between washing and waxing of the paint. The duster is made with a special paraffin wax that is baked into the brushes and picks up the dust from any surface that it is wiped over. Though California Dusters are designed to perform for years without being cleaned, occasionally they may need to be cleaned, particularly if they subjected to heavy use.
Shake the duster out very thoroughly after each time it is used. Do this over a trash can or simply outside away from your vehicle. According to the company that makes it, the dirtier a California Duster is, the better it functions.
