Skip The Rest & Use The Best
September 4, 2021
This duster is hands down the best I have used. As a test I used a microfiber style duster and it was 80% effective. You could still see streaks of dust. I followed it up with this duster and after use no dust was left on the car. I then used just this duster on another dirty car and it removed all the dust. If you don’t have time for car washes and detailing this is a great time saver and the result is a great looking ride.

A must have
July 16, 2021
ANYONE who has a vehicle that you are proud to own MUST have an Original California Duster. You can carry it in the trunk or the back seat in its bag. It keeps your vehicle looking shinny and new. I highly recommend this item to anyone who takes pride in 'their wheels'!
Great for removing light dust on vehicle surface
March 20, 2021
This is my 2nd Original California Duster. I still have my first one. It's in my other vehicle. The brush works better, the dirtier that it gets. Once it breaks in, you will notice a difference when using it to dust off your vehicle. It does what I expect, removes light dust from my vehicle surface. Just shake it frequently to get rid of dust and debris as you use it.
ProsLight weight, easy to use, easy to store, doesnt take up a lot of space, when you store it.
ConsNone that I can think of.

Original... but oily
February 27, 2020
This is just like my 20 yr old Duster, except even after leaving it set on news paper as suggested for 48hrs to absorb excess oil...it is still leaving some residue (streaking) behind. I may have to give it several more uses b4 it stops. I haven't lost faith in the product yet, after all my other one (which I still have) kinda works still.

My father's original
April 20, 2019
I have the original car duster I gave to my Dad on Fathers' Day in the early '70's! I got it back when he gave up driving when he was 84. It still works brilliantly! Original case/bag. The only reason I didn't give it a "5" is because sometimes the handle is a little awkward to maneuver around parts of larger SUVs, as vehicles have gotten larger since then.
ProsStill picks up dust, pollen, light dirt and even a dried bird dropping. I've only washed it once in all that time.
ConsHandle gets cumbersome to move over some larger cars.
Just as advertised

I can't believe I just discovered this
August 23, 2016
I saw an elderly neighbor woman using one of these on her car. I went to an outdoor market and saw a booth selling these. I haven't "washed" my car in almost two years. I went back and bought the dash cleaner and use it to dust inside my house and clean my cleaning fans. Absolutely amazing.
ProsCan be used effectively from standing, sitting (wheelchair, walker).
ConsAARP doesn't give one away with a two year membership. Hehehe

The Original California Duster is a great product
July 27, 2016
Perfect! My black w/gold metal flake clearcoat 66 Coupe de Ville shows every speck of dust. It has never looked so good on a daily basis since purchasing this east-to-use duster
ProsMy Other (cheaper) duster required spray detailer after each use in an attempt to remove all of the dust. This left a hazy film and swirls which has been eliminated with The Original California Duster. For a few more dollars, this duster is a huge labor saver and produces markedly better results and the spray detailer is now much more effective

I was very impressed with this product. Wipe car down with the mop and you have a beautiful shine. Don't need to wash car as often either.
ProsEasy to use.
ConsSo far none

Duster is a life saver
July 3, 2016
We live on a very dusty road in Santa Fe, NM and every time we drove on the road in front of our house our car was covered in dust. Thanks to the CA Duster we can now have a car that looks much cleaner. It works great!

Still getting used to it.....First use left no streaking....Overall I think it will be a great time saver for prep before applying "detail spray".
ProsQuick way to pull away light dust and pollen.
ConsLeft some streaks and smudges (first time)....This could be "user in-experience"

I use the duster as the final touch up on the car. It keeps the car very nice and makes the car look like it has been detailed!!
ProsThe duster works as advertised. I like the storage bag that it comes in.
I use it all the time!

I couldn't do without this! I am VERY particular about scratches on the clearcoat, and was skeptical at first, but this thing DOES NOT SCRATCH the paint. It removes dry-deposited dust, and even light wet-deposited dirt (once dried), and has saved me many car and motorcycle washes. I shake it out frequently while dusting to minimize the chance of scratching. The only trick is to avoid wax streaks. For this, be sure to follow the conditioning instructions to remove excess wax, and never dust a hot car. I now own 4 of these (2 original, and 2 smaller versions), an use them on everything: cars, bikes, furniture, computers...
Pros- cleans dust and light dirt off car quickly - doesn't scratch - inexpensive
Cons- may leave wax streaks if car is too hot

This is a handy little item, especially with the drought in California .... keeps the dust down between car washes and saves precious water !
"Duster" an Excellent Product
September 24, 2014
I saw my neighbor using the Duster on his Corvette. After speaking with him, I decided to purchase it since I had just acquired a new Mercedes which was black in color and a dust magnet. The Duster is an excellent product. It removes the dust from my vehicle and does not leave any streaks or residue.
ProsRemoves the Dust. No streaks or residue.

The Original California Duster
July 23, 2014
After thirteen years, my first Original California Duster had finally had enough and stopped picking up the dust. This second one that I just purchased is not near as full or thick as the first one, and it is leaving red lint behind. I'm not as impressed with this one as I was with the first but, it is picking up the dust without scratching the paint.
ProsPicks up dust without scratching.
ConsAbout one third less in fullness or thickness as once was. Leaves red lint behind.
By Chris K.
This is the ONE

The best duster
June 12, 2014
I have had one since 2008 for my muscle car and I wanted another duster for a new car I bought. The auto store did not have the California duster, so I purchased the brand they had. This other brand did not work well at all and I knew I had to purchase another The Original California Duster. I threw out the other brand duster.

Worth every penny. I bought my 1st California Duster when they originally came out in the late 80's. Still have it and use it regularly, I have bought several more for relatives and friends as gifts. I can't say enough good things about the California Duster, it's amazing. Do yourself a favor and spend a couple extra bucks and buy the original California Duster, don't mess with the Knock Offs
ProsCleans great, easy to use. Lasts for ever
ConsNeeds a better more durable storage bag

I have not used mine yet........however I saw several being used at a recent car show and I am sure mine too will work great.
April 21, 2012
I've had mine for almost a decade. I used it on my dark blue F150and now on my Sport Red Metallic G8. When it gets dirty and doesn't seem to work well I clean it with Woolite let it dry a day or two and I'm back in business. Just like the waterless washes I use this product used correctly does NOT scratch the finish.

I own one and will say this. Many people hate this thing, because it scratches their paint. The answer is them, not the product. It is designed with wax to lift light dust and dirt from the car without scratching. The problem is, most people take it, plop it down on the paint and more or less scrub their paint with it. Well no wonder you have scratches. I have a dark blue metallic paint, something that shows scratches and swirls just as bad a black. I have been using a CA duster since May without any issues and no scratching. It is because I lightly allow the threads of the duster to connect with the car and lift and remove the dust. I have done a lot of concourse car events and this is a must for keeping the car looking good over the course of the day. Just be gentle with how you wipe the car down and let the product work as it was designed to. One thing I did not note above. After each section of the car, make sure to shake out the duster from any dust collected that is still loose and also you can hit it across your hand to sort of beat any deeper dirt/dust that is inside. The threads will get dirty, but don't worry about that, it really has no impact on the effectiveness of the item. When it gets too dirty or no longer is removing dust any longer, time to get a new one. Mine is 7 months old and works as good as it did when it was new.
Easy to use, Long Lasting and it just plain works...

I had bought my California Duster about 12 years ago after a suggestion from a friend. Well I can tell you that it has worked great through the many cars I have owned. It now stands ready to dust my 09 STI. It has just had it's first washing as you can imagine it was quite dirty after years of service. It almost looks new again, but more important, IT STILL WORKS GREAT. Make sure to wash it in COLD water, and AIR dry, as not to affect the paraffin coating. I look forward to many more years of Service from my "California Duster"

you need this if you want a clean car
August 5, 2008
Use this product on the car when its cool. Do not push too hard or it can leave wax smear marks all over the paint. I would recommend this product. It keeps cars clean during a car show or after the detail.
house work easier

Easy To Use
March 18, 2006
Nothing really needs to be said about the Cal. Car Duster that has not already been said this is a great product for daily dusting of your vehicle without fear of marring or scratching as long as you do not have any heavy dirt. Great for spring time when the air is loaded with pollen. I use mine daily and during the summer months i can go up to a month between washing by using the Duster and some QD.
