Just though this my help people w/ dark civic

I dont know if this has been post before, well i did a search couldn't find anything similar....[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]
anyways.....i'm sure people w/ Black, Blue, or Green color civic always have problem w/ dust landing on their car...and some of them will use towel to wipe it off but it might scratch the paint....California Car Duster (On Sale at Walmart for $9.95) will clean the dust off your car instantly without scratching the paint and while u r taking the dust off your car, it will apply a tiny amount of wax to protect your car...[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/IMG]

Hope this helps...i have one and they works great....peace

Just to correct you, the california duster doesnt apply any wax to the surface. It just dusts the surface.

The interior cali duster works nice too. I actually ended up throwing mine both out, because after too much uses it doesnt work anymore. I read the directions and it said how to wash them when they got to dirty, so I did that and it didnt work as good as before. So now I just use the 5 minute detailer and a rag for the outside and I wipe down my interior weekly.

I never goto a car wash...I usually do my car by hand, myself. During the winter when I have no place to do the car, I bring it to a car detailer that does hand washes and he does it. I dont recommend car washes. One trip through th car wash and your wax is stripped off the car. If you dont have wax on the car, just imagine what the chemicals are doing to your paint.
