Any suggestions for removing light dust that accumulates on exterior surfaces between washings? Color is Crystal Red Tintcoat.
Just bought this '14 Enclave and want to keep fine scratches to a minimum.

My Tri-coat White doesn't show dust too bad, but I do hit it with Turtle Wax Ice detailing spray regularly. Pretty tough clear coat on my 09. I am relentless against bugs and bird crap more than the dust though............... Just use a soft towel, spray and all good. It's the wife's DD, so I cover the less used cars when they are laid up and clean in the garage.

JerseyDevil,

Thanks for that. Have an old one in the garage somewhere. Will give it a go.

silverettes,

White was my first choice of colors for the reasons you cite but wife is vehemently opposed to white vehicles.....so I ended up with red.

I've had a couple of California Dusters over the years. They work fairly well when you just make light passes over the car body. Any kind of pressure will result in waxy streaks from the embedded stuff they use. We're having a lot of pollen in the air here locally, and there's no way my duster will pick up all that crap.

I too have had good luck with the California Duster over the years on dark colors (meaning navy and black, don't need it so much on light colors). Just use it as directed (and as rexster stated) without any more pressure than necessary; in other words, just let the fibers do the work they're designed to do.

I'll recommend the California duster as well, Does wonders on my Cyber Grey Metallic. Do you guys ever wash your duster. I have never washed mine because they seem to work better the older they get..they pick up wax and oils and seems like they pick the dust up better than a brand new or washed one. Could just be me ;)

The California Duster is a good product. Too keep the fine scratches out don't use towels to dry. Use an absorber. The towels are most of the problem when it come to scratches. I use only 100 percent cotton towels when i polish my cars that i buy just for my cars.

California Duster all the time. But, I drive thru cloth wash my "Cherry-Ot" almost every other day. I wax it every other month.

Touchless only car wash for me. Anything else will scratch. If I don't know what it is it will not touch the paint.
