I know this might sound a little silly but I have a dust problem. I have Jet Black 330ci coupe which I wash/wax on a weekly basis. What surprises me is that in ONE day I manage to attract all the dust in LA. Now, its not because I have a carport instead of a closed garage or because LA is well, kinda dusty. I used to have Black Nissan Murano which never used to attract so much dust.

Are there certain waxes that I should be avoiding? If this is totally normal please let me know so that I can manage my expectations

p.s - I have never used clay on my car. Its an 2004.

Dust build-up-with low humidity conditions friction on the paint surface will cause static electricity (this is exacerbated by the use of polyester (nylon) Microfiber) resulting in dust attraction to the paint surface. Rinsing the surface with water or applying a quick detailer (QD) or use the CCD as stated above to remove dust

When the duster is first purchased it should be wrapped in newspaper (48 hours) to remove any excess paraffin wax, the duster should not be washed, the dirtier it gets the better it works (I've been using mine now for almost five years without it being washed) http://www.calcarduster.com/faq.asp

Do not use ***8211; on a wet surface (even condensation) as this will cause streaking, or soon after driving as a hot surface will also cause streaking Alternative product-OXO Car Duster- http://www.autogeek.net

TOGWT -

Thank you so much for you insightful comments and suggestions. I will order a CCD from the website and see how it works out for me.

Also, I plan to get clay work done this weekend before the rains commence.

Thanks again!
