This is something else to consider. Use the duster prior to putting the cover on your car. This will keep dirt off the inside of your cover. That is the reason why we cover our cars in the first place. The water blade is a great! It cuts drying time, is compact and quick to use.

[QUOTE=spielman5] How does it work with SNOW??..Terry[/QUOTE]
I'm not sure how the duster will work on snow, but I bet the water blade will work.
I have both and use them all the time.
In fact, they were the first things I bought for the Vette. Got them at Mid America.
The duster is dirty, but works great. And I always use it before I put the cover on.
Just remember to shake it out. Always reminds me of my mother when she would shake out the dust mop.
Wow, this is an old thread!

This HAS to be one of, if not THE oldest threads on this forum!!
Yes, I have a duster. Laid it out on some newspapers for a few months. No more leaving greasy streaks on the car! They do have a wee bit of an excess of "wax", or whatever on them, new. Mine is now 8 years old, and works very well.......still.

I have several of them and have been using them for 10 years I guess.
They work great. I also have the California Water Blade. It does a good
job at getting the biggest majority of water off of the vette. But I
still go around with the electric blower to get all of the water out
all those little nooks and crannies.

Ya Dave, I've also have the Water Blade but won't use it on the Vette. I agree the duster is amazing but I won't drag that blade across my Vettes body I do use the blade on my truck though cilrah38685.8410763889

I have both the Cal duster and water blade and both work well on
my vette. the water blade doesn't hurt the paint at all, just don't
overwipe with it. I use a microfiber towel on any missed spots
because it doesn't fit in every cranny or edge. but it sure speeds up
the drying time .

I've got both as well although I don't use the Water Blade much. (except on my wife's rice burner ) I prefer a chamious over the water blade. I usally follow this up with Meguires Detail Mist. I try to stay away from water as much as possible. It takes forever and a day to clean up the spokes!

I have a Calif. Duster and I use it on a black car also. But I found out that when you get to the end of your sweep with it, it leaves a dust mark. If you spray a little "Endust for Electronics" on it, you don't have this problem. It is oil-free, wax-free, ammonia-free, and (this is great for Corvettes) ANTI-STATIC. I have found this product in ACE hardware stores. But I think it works great along with the Duster. Just spray a little on the Duster and the dust mark goes away. It doesn't take much, but it works. Dosen't leave any residue either.
If it's not painted, Chrome it!!!
