    Why can't you use a Calid Duster with Zaino? I've used a Cali for years on 3 different black cars with no issues...

    The consenus on here (from past threads) seems to be that the California Duster works just fine without any damage to the finish. If you do not wish to use a duster, I suppose you could blow the car off with compressed air or simply wash it.

    Can you use a dry clean soft microfiber towel on a dry car for dusting by itself? Can certainly use something like Mcguiar's Quik Detailing spray with the microfiber towel for light cleaning/dusting on top of the Zaino.

    I have heard of people using electric (NOT GAS) leaf blowers. I wouldn't recommend it though.

    I've been told in the past you NEED to use a detailing spray when using a microfiber.



    The Cali duster is the only thing I use to "dust-off" my car. If it needs more attention than that, i.e. water spot, then I use my quick detailer, otherwise, time for a wash.

    The Cali duster won't touch my car. I just rinse it off to remove dust.

    I won't use a Cali duster. I just leave the dust (if any) till the next time I wash it.

    You can tackle this 2 ways.
    1. Use the Cali Duster. But only use it lightly and with almost no pressure on the body. You will no doubt leave fine little scratches if you do.
    2. Use a QD and a MF rag. That is of course with it being just light dust.
    Neither one should be used as an alternative to washing the car.

    I use one only after rinsing the car after I wash it. I only use one for that.
    Nothing else. Saves time drying it off and I get into the mirrors and cracks from the molding.
