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.

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

If I had a really good paint job then I would toss my dusters. As it is my 32 yr. old paint has more problems than the minute scratches that they will do.

Don't feel bad, Grass Doctor bought the Pocket Fisherman to go deep sea fishing on the way back from SA! o_O
