hello people; Do you, have you or thought about using one? I have one and got mine out that's been in my basement. It's a bit smelly but I'm going to try it again. I used it and it's good for keeping pollen and dusty stuff of your paint but as a cleaner I don't know about that. My paint is not the greatest so I guess it don't matter.

I still have mine from around 1995! Works great. Sit it in the sun for a while to get the parrafin wax re-melted into the fibers. It kinda "reactivates" it

hello Warp6; I've had mine about the same amount of time. I used it on a clean car just to take the pollen off. How do you use it?

I'll use it for the heavy dust then finish with a lightly damp microfiber towel in my left hand and a dry microfiber towel in my right hand.

I bought an original one and it is in the trash. It always left red lint on the car, then broke at the handle/ base joint, lol, I fell for the hype.

I use the tail of an American Mink that I killed in South Africa , it has a nice carved bamboo handle fashioned to it
thought you'd get a laugh out of that , but seriously my buddy uses one on his plum crazy road runner not a black car so not as critical as black but he keeps the cali duster realy clean slaps the dust out of it after every pass , read good and bad things on them
