California Carduster

Has anyone used the "California Carduster"? It is one of those dust mop looking things that you use to remove the dust and dirt from your car between washings. I looked at one recently at WalMart and it said that the carduster has its strands coated with a parifin that removes the dust.

My Black MDX is a real beauty, but it really shows the dirt, so I would like to use something like this between washings.

I am wondering if anyone has used this type of thing, and is there any potential harm in using it?

I swear by it. It's not a replacement for washing your car but it's great for extending out the time between needed washes. On my Camry, I give it a swipe every time I fill up, and it's lasted me 3 years. My MDX is always in a garage or parking structure so sap and birds are not a problem but dust settles pretty quick in southern california. I find myself wiping it down every other day or so and it still looks great a week and a half after I washed it. The instructions do warn you to be careful the first time you use it in case of parrafin streaks but I havn't had any problems.

The best place to purchase one is at Costco. You get a regular one and a mini one for your dash and interior for under $12. Although for my interior I use a swiffer wipe that I leave in the central console. It's fantastic, it doesn't just push around the dust like most other cloths would but picks it up.
